Podcast: Where Does the Money Go? First Time Event Expenses

(sponsored podcast)

TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 5:00 - 5:30 PM ET

Part II of a series to understand the operations of creating a new art show.

Artists and Charities Hand in Hand will host its inaugural event on November 2 and 3, 2019, at the Palm Beach Convention Center in W. Palm Beach, Florida.

How does a new art fair get started? What are all the steps involved, and for heaven's sake, where does the money come from and where does it go? The show organizer, Ingrid Robinson, spells it all out, from the initial concept to opening and then closing the doors at the Convention Center. 

  • Finding a destination venue
  • Finding partners and sponsors
  • Finding exhibitors
  • Marketing
  • Paying the bills 

This is a tutorial about starting an event from scratch, networking with a local community to build a "must attend" show that benefits all involved, the artists, the charities and the philanthropic goals of patrons.
