You have probably never thought about outsourcing your venue sourcing and event logistics needs before. Though not typical for athletic event management, venue sourcing services are fairly common in other event segments. For example, a critical team member for film productions is a Location Scout.
The Location Scout helps the director bring the film’s vision to life. They go into the world and find locations that match the script and storyboard.
Functionally, Stylehawk fills this same role. Your event is another canvas for storytelling and we help ensure that the physical space and event experience communicates your voice to your audience. As the event promoter, you have a lot to think about. Creating great event content is critical to the success of your event. This after all, is the reason attendees are buying tickets or registering for your program. Perhaps more importantly though, you have to make sure your revenue streams are flowing. Selling tickets, generating registrations and securing sponsorship dollars are vital needs for event promoters . If you are spending your productive time on non- revenue producing activities like event logistics, then you are not directing energies to the activities that will ultimately define success for your event. Outsourcing to a company like Stylehawk will increase profit potential for your event in the following ways:
- Time is a perishable resource and venue sourcing is time consuming. With the Stylehawk Venue Directory, venue options are consolidated in one place. This eliminates the broad internet searches for venues, the back and forth negotiation process and the hours of site visits. Furthermore, we have pre- established relationships with the venues in the network. As such, we are able to deliver the critical answers on availability and cost quickly and often at preferred rates. There may be a cost advantages to book through Stylehawk and there is certainly an economic advantage when considering your cost per hour spent on non- revenue producing activities. To this point, the 80/ 20 rule states that 20% of your revenue is a result of 80% of your energies. By spending more time focusing on the 20% of actions that yield 80% of your revenue results and outsourcing the non- revenue producing actions to professional service providers you will see tremendous growth in the metrics that define success for your event.
- Event operations and logistics are not revenue producing elements but have huge impact on the event experience. Event logistic failures can completely derail the success of your event. By activating industry professionals to focus on these critical event functions, you can rest easy knowing the structural elements of the event are in place while also freeing yourself to focus on the higher yield activities of your event.
