Supplementing Your Meeting Budget


You want your event to leave your participants in awe but your budget has been cut to the bone, where do you turn?


James Lynton, SGMP Treasurer, will lead the group through the world of meeting financials.  Beginning with the understanding of where your budget comes from, planner participants will explore common ways government agencies may fund their meetings. James will help us explore the opportunities of using other people’s money, aka sponsorships, and the issues that face government meeting planners in the solicitation of funds.


Supplier participants will get some great tips and ideas that they can use to help planners who may face budget issues while trying to bring an event to their property.
