Being in the event industry we visit many venues, and all have their own unique feel and benefits. In Canterbury following the earthquakes, many venues were lost and many had become tired and worn, and in dire need of updating. As we're often asked to recommend venues, we like to have a good range of options and price points, to present our clients. So this decline has been unfortunate. But thank goodness it's now beginning to turn, and we're seeing some amazing venues again.
