I would start by checking to see if they have a proposal for corporate events. If so, that tells you that they have experience with them. If not, I wouldn't cross them off. Instead, talk to them to get a better idea as to what they can offer you.

Many venues can be used for multi purposes. It certainly depends on the nature of the conference and the style of the content and how its delivered. Other things to consider is the quality of audio visual, catering services and accessibility to transportation, airports or hotels. While is may have been a great wedding venue you certainly have to come about the approach from a different perspective.
