Event Management & The Bottom Line
Recovering Costs and Engaging Your Community
Hosting events can be a great opportunity for your organization. Offering your facility for use can bring people together, help your community and even be a way to collect funds to reinvest in your institution. But, how do you begin to set up or optimize your community engagement strategy, and how do you keep the public engaged while you are charging them for their usage?
Come join our discussion as we dive into how the public's usage of facilities can stop being a headache and start being a positive for your institution. During the presentation you will learn:
- What data is critical to know when recovering costs from your events
- Why keeping your community and student body engaged is important
- How engaging the public and recovering costs affect each other
