I wanted to host a charity event plus hold it in a giant enough arena, and i had bands hired to come play for free.
I had vendors serving food, drinks plus even local artists that would sell crafts.
All the profits were going to a charity that was a great cause. The issue I had was finding the right arena to host such a giant group of people. I needed anywhere that could serve as a phase for the bands plus have seating around it. I also needed areas that could be compatible with food plus drink vendors, however my local artists needed anywhere to go that wasn’t in a lavatory. I started looking at ice rinks, soccer fields plus other sporting centers. I then found through a lot of googling that there are enterprise centers to rent in my area. The 1 company I found does a lot of commercial spaces. They have commercial offices, company development centers plus enterprise centers for rent in Northland. I ended up getting a really great deal at the enterprise center for my charity event. They knocked 20% off the cost as long as I stated where I rented the facility from. It was no large deal adding their names to the signs for the charity event. I didn’t mind giving them a shout out since the price reduction really helped our take house profit. The event ended up being a success. The layout of the building was perfect for everything that I had booked. There was more than enough room for most people to mingle.
