No, I’m not suddenly branching out into a music career.

I’m talking about the importance of acoustics when choosing a space to host EWC meetings.

Until I started interpreting regularly at EWCs, I didn’t realise the task of hosting these meetings.

Now that I’ve had several years’ experience, guiding my clients on choosing venues with suitable acoustics is something I do frequently.

Bearing in mind that the space may also need to accommodate up to 12 interpreting booths, you can see how venue selection is an important task!

That’s actually a huge part of my job – advising clients on these practicalities…and visiting venues to be able to recommend them.

What do you think are the biggest considerations when planning events?
