A sales meeting can be some of the most important events you host as a business. They directly impact the revenue you produce but also help create valuable relationships.
Whether it is a large sales meeting with over 100 people or a small intimate, direct sales meeting of 10-30 people, you want to make sure you host it at a venue that accommodates for exactly what you need.
The venue needs to create the overall experience, and of course, first impressions make a huge difference.
At Deckhouse, we have created a list of all the things you need to think about when it comes to planning your sales meeting, and how we can help you achieve complete success, so all you have to worry about is the content of the meeting.
Of course, the first thing you need to think about is the atmosphere of the location you plan to host your sales meeting. Maybe you are thinking of hosting at your business office, however, going off-site allows you to feel more relaxed and also gives off a great first impression by investing some money into a beautiful space.
First impressions count, and at Deckhouse, we have the beautiful surroundings and those stunning views of the Sydney city skyline, which will impress any potential customer!
You want the service to be above and beyond, not just from yourself and your business, but from the venue you plan to host your meeting. Service is one of the most important aspects of a successful event, conference or meeting.
At Deckhouse, we have hosted hundreds of events and our team is very experienced to provide the very best service to your team and the guests you will have attending your meeting.
In addition to the amazing service you want to provide, you need to be hospitable, and so does the venue. Think catering, are you going to be providing food? Maybe some drinks?
These are the small touches that go a long way. They show you care, and they show you are always willing to put in those little 1% extras. The Deckhouse venue space caters to a range of different food and beverage packages and we will offer advice and assistance around what you should provide during your sales meeting.
The overall environment is very important. Just like the atmosphere but think the internal and external features of the venue.
You want to think about the spaces that will connect with you and your guests. Picking a space for a meeting, you want to go for inviting, but also impressive.
The deckhouse is the perfect combination of beautiful, modern and inviting, plus the exterior environment makes for the perfect venue space.
You want to ensure your venue team are happy to cater to your needs. You want to go above and beyond for your sales meeting, which means you will require a venue team that is flexible and accommodating to your needs.
You know your customers, so you want to work with a team who understand what you need, while also offering the flexibility for things that change.

Of course, the facilities are critical, which means you need to have a list of the functions you require for your sales meeting.
Will you have any presentations and need AV? You also need to think about all the “out of the box” requirements for your event. Make sure you always look at a venue floor plan to ensure you know what to expect with the layout, access to bathrooms, outdoor areas and of course, where you will be setting up your presentations.
At Deckhouse, we have all state-of-the-art facilities for all your audio and visual needs, plus we have great layouts so you have access to everything you may need for your sales meeting. Of course, we also have site tours so you can picture your it all before the day.
Make a list of all the features you will need for your event, some have been mentioned above, but think:
- Catering (food and beverages): think about what types of food you will need, dietary requirements, etc. this will also be determined by the time you have your event.
- Location: where in Sydney will you want to host, don’t always think in the city is best, some places in the suburbs are also perfect and easy to get to.
- The number of people: how many people will you need to be catering to? This will help determine the venue you need.
- Audio/Visual: think presentations, sound, the lot – what will you need, list it down.
- Interior and exterior of the venue: might seem like a small aspect of your space but this makes a huge difference, it is all about first impressions.
