Many hotels and resorts boast discounted prices and fewer crowds during off season, however to what end.
We list down the pros & cons which you , as a client, should consider while planning an event during the monsoons or holiday seasons.
Costs are usually Lower
The biggest advantage to planning a company meeting during the off-season is undoubtedly the savings, especially in terms of room and banquet charges. There are very few social engagements which take place and one usually has availability with many places inviting bookings to keep themselves occupied.
As a client it is easier to negotiate and agree on a package as compared to costs during season time.
Resorts and offsites are usually less crowded
Planning a monsoon getaway for your team and conducting some team building exercises is the ideal way to go during the off season.
Resorts or any offsite locations chosen see lesser crowds, which allows for an intimate and concentrated event.
Weather is a factor
The weather is usually a concern during Off Season, hence cost savings aside you have a very real possibility of your event not creating the requisite impact due to a lack of audience or may be washed away due to torrential rains.
An obvious and real con to planning an event during off season.
Accessibility and Attendance
Even if the weather is stable during the event and not before or after it can be a problem, accessibility and attendance can get affected based on how the weather behaves before the event and event recall can get affected based on how the weather behaves after.
