Part of my responsibilities at my workplace is to plan, coordinate and facilitate events. Specifically, the people I was with and I system a single gigantic conference and trade show each summer season and numerous or 5 smaller workshops throughout the year. The gigantic event costs an arm and a leg because hotels are so incredibly high-priced! Plus, they rip you off by not allowing you to bring in outside food or drink. You must use the A/V company they tell you to use, and the prices are high-priced. The costs go on and on. As a result, I am typically looking for event sponsors. Generally, the sponsors are the companies that do company with our members, however every once in a while an unexpected organization is willing to sponsor something. This happened to me recently when I reached out to the Heating and Air Conditioning company that services the hotel. I asked them to sponsor the event by donating toward the heating and cooling costs; Much to my surprise, they agreed. The Heating and Air Conditioning company wrote a check to my association and that donation went into the pot of money for conference. Generally, the Heating and Air Conditioning companies do not have anything to do with that sort of thing. After all, they already repair the hotel. However, this a single A/C service supervisor thought that when some of our members are searching for a fantastic Heating and Air Conditioning service and replacement company, they might choose the a single who put up a booth at the annual conference. I was quite blissful and I legitimately hope that he gets a up-to-date client as a result of our event.
