Picking a venue is one of the first items you need when hosting an event. A lot of thought needs to go into this selection. When is the event? Is the venue available on that date? Will the venue hold the number of people coming (invited) to the event? What does the venue include?
Hotel ballrooms are great places to host an event. Rooms for guests are available so they don't have to drive. Most hotels include almost everything you need ; food service, tables and chairs, clean up. We recommend Embassy Suites, Hyatt Regency and Marriott Grand as our favorite hotels. Great service and well trained staff.
Private Event Facilities
Greenville is loaded with some great event venues to fit different events. Zen Greenville offers a modern feel with great spaces, soft seating, outdoor area, bar service and the opportunity to bring in your own caterer. The Old Cigar Warehouse offers a lot of the same with an old rustic feel from the brick walls, Eidison light chandelier and large event deck. the Cannon Center in Greer offers a clean slate of a space with a deck overlooking a pond in Greer Park. The Davenport in Greer is quaint with large chandeliers and hardwood floors. Midtown Artery is a classy art gallery with great lighting. When checking with these and other event venues, ask about caterers they have on their approved vendor list, bar options and how many tables and chairs they offer. Also ask about capacity. Event the best facility doesn't work if they can't hold all your guests.Check our list of vendor partners for more choices for a private event venue.
Back yard party
Plan your back yard party with parking in mind and a rain plan. Tents are really cool in the back yard and companies can provide shuttle service from a nearby parking lot(ask permission before parking 200 cars at Bi-Lo).
where ever you host the event, Upstate Event Services can provide you with the items you need to round out the party. Additional tables and chairs, tents, china and glassware, DJ's Floral, Photography etc. we can help to bring it all together.
