[Thamesvalley-pm] Hosting and Event/meeting at an employer

I was wondering, for those people who convinced an employer to let them host a 
technical event such as a LUG/PM meeting on site, what hoops did they have to 
jump through to be allowed to host the meeting?

I assume there was the sign in and sign out and you have to be in attendance 
at all times, and make sure everything is in order, but what other things did 
they expect you to do?

We have plenty of large meeting rooms at work and we could easily host a Perl 
Mongers day, we have projectors/screens, plenty of tables and chairs and 
non-corporate network internet access. I think we can also cordon of the 
building so the access is restricted.

If I did ask I know there would the obvious concerns, but I wondered what was 
reasonable and what have people put up with? The recent ThamesValley.PM 
meeting took place in a commercial office space, and I know banks have hosted 
technical meetings before now for the London.PM.

Being based in Basingstoke in north Hampshire may be a useful location for 
some meetings.
