How do I rent a large sporting event venue, like a San Diego stadium?
Getting your sporting event into a large venue, such as a San Diego stadium or arena, can be difficult for the average event promoter. Large venues receive a huge amount inquiries from outside event promoters wanting to hold events in their venues. At the same time, operators of these facilities are extremely busy, since the larger a venue is, the more complicated it is to operate. This means that inquiries from unfamiliar leads looking to hold their events in large San Diego venues are unlikely to get a quick response, if they get a response at all.
If an event promoter is able to get through to the venue management at a large arena or stadium, they need to be experienced and prepared for the questions the venue manager is going to ask. It is important to know the facility’s booking policy, as it pertains to scheduling, revenue model, and the seasonality that goes with it.
In addition, any public assembly facility is going to have concerns about the professionalism of a new event coming in. The quality of an event can affect reputation of the venue (just like a venue’s reputation can elevate the status of an event). As such, venue operators will be protective of their venue’s reputation, and thus, less likely to take a chance on a new event unless they are comfortable it will be presented at an acceptable level and executed professionally.
