Corporate Event Tip : Location Donation

In today's market, the average corporate event is working with a limited budget. Minimize the cost by thinking outside the box and getting the hook up on a location donation. Sound difficult? It doesn't have to be. Simply ask your clients to scroll through their Rolodex (yup, I brought back the Rolodex!) and find out if any of their colleagues happen to work in a building with an available snazzy-conference room. Or, maybe you are a seasoned planner and able to use your personal contacts for a location donation.

Don't even make excuses, there have to be a few fantastic buildings in your neighborhood that have their own personal room with a view, roof top lounge, garden courtyard, the CEO's custom landscaped terrace, something unique to host a fabulous event. One spot in my neck of the woods is Phillips Point, home to many businesses with intracoastal views and oh yeah, a view of Palm Beach.

I can't write it enough: think outside of the the box and speak up. In the end, you'll never know unless you ask. And saving the cost of a venue rental is a huge step in the right direction when you've budget is low, not to mention the best way to impress your clients.
