The success of an event depends on a number of factors, of which venue is most crucial. Details such as location, accessibility and availability of parking determine whether an affair would be a success or not.
Those who are looking for an ideal location that would make their gathering a truly memorable one should consider The Venue at the Prism Plaza, located at TwoE-ComCenter at the Mall of Asia Complex. It has a versatile, contemporary air-conditioned space that makes it ideal for all kinds of functions. An al fresco garden area located just outside the events space offers stunning views of Manila Bay and its famed sunset.
Angel G. Ortiz, venue manager of The Venue at the Prism Plaza, says the events place can be dressed up depending on the needs of a client. It has sleek lines, white walls and an open ceiling that serve as a blank canvas for whatever look you may want for your affair. With two halls totaling 500-square meters in size, the space could be enlarged or made smaller as the need arises.
Since the events place opened in 2012, it has been host to a number of corporate and private events, including birthdays and debuts, wedding receptions and anniversaries, baptismal and engagement parties, corporate parties and launches, sales rallies, meetings and conferences.
When booked jointly, the two halls have a capacity for 280 guests for a banquet setting and 350 guests for cocktails. On the other hand, Hall 1 can accommodate as many as 220 guests for a cocktail setup, while Hall 2 can fit 150 guests for cocktails. Both halls have adjoining VIP lounges, which could also be booked separately for private events, such as bridal showers and intimate parties.
If you want a bigger space for your gathering, the Prism Plaza Central, which is the courtyard of TwoE-ComCenter, is also available for functions. It can room 300 guests in a banquet setting, while it can fit in 400 guests for cocktails.
Ortiz says The Venue at the Prism Plaza is perfect for late afternoon events, particularly wedding receptions, to maximize the view of the sunset. Some events may even take advantage of the fireworks show held at the SM by the Bay on Friday and Saturday nights. In fact, the venue was quite popular for events that coincided with the recent Philippine International Pyromusical Competition held at the complex. The open-air garden outside the venue offers guests a vantage point from which they could enjoy the show.
Apart from hall use, Ortiz says The Venue at the Prism Plaza has a number of packages that make booking an event at the venue easy and hassle-free. Clients can choose from a variety of packages, inclusive of catering and physical arrangements, and sometimes even entertainment. It offers packages for corporate events, meetings, and even children’s parties.
When it comes to location, The Venue at the Prism Plaza is near to major churches in Manila, such as the Manila Cathedral, Ermita and Malate churches, and the Archdiocesan Shrine of Jesus, which is in the MOA Complex.
Parking is also not a problem, since there is a large guarded parking space just outside the TwoE-ComCenter, as well as parking inside the building. For those who need to shop for a last-minute gift before the event, the SM Mall of Asia is just a stone’s throw away.
Ortiz says the venue is busy with wedding receptions from December to February, while it receives a number of corporate bookings from August to October.
She advises prospective clients to book their reservations early to be able to take advantage of good dates in the future.
