They will be given priority scheduling. These clients will generally generate $40,000 per year or more.

Price Rationale

When looking at event venues, companies and individuals are interested in the cost per guest primarily. They do not want to pay for more space than they need, which happens when they have fewer guests than the average capacity of a space. Prices depend on many variables, as event details can be customized to the individual client. For example, an average sit-down dinner may range from $75 to $200 per guest depending on the number of guests, extent of food options, and additional services selected.

The pricing model for Sumptuous Ballroom will include a premium over the average event space based on the high level of service, value-added event planning, and upkeep and beauty of the space. The hall will be priced similarly to upscale venues of similar usable square footage.

During the initial launch of the space, there will be introductory spring and summer rates to encourage early rentals (the normal rate of $2,500 will be discounted to $2,000 during this period). This will create a trial pricing period that coincides with a slow time for corporate events (in the summer).
