Since we opened the doors of Stylehawk, we’ve been working hard to create connections with sports venues throughout Southern California. We’ve amassed a network of many impressive venues from San Diego to Santa Barbara and continue to add more all the time. We’ve made our directory searchable so event promoters can easily narrow down their venue options based on their event type and their desired location.
In a perfect world, event promoters could then just contact the venues they were interested in and ask them about availability, pricing, and any other important details related to the venue. Unfortunately, it’s usually not that simple.
Why Won’t Any Venue Managers Return My Calls About Renting Their San Diego Sports Facilities?
The staff members at sporting event venues are typically very busy with their day-to-day duties—especially those who work for large venues. Hosting outside events, even profitable ones, may not be something they are really interested in pursuing. Many event promoters we’ve worked with tell us that they have trouble getting venue managers to even return their phone calls and emails, and we suspect the reason is largely because they are so busy.
Venue managers may also be reluctant to host an outside event they aren’t familiar with. At one time or another, most venue managers have probably worked with event promoters who were unprepared, unorganized, or unprofessional. Hosting a poorly run event can blemish the reputation of a sporting event facility, so many venue managers are reluctant to work with an event promoter they know nothing about.
So, What’s an Event Promoter to Do?
Because we’ve established relationships with sporting event venues across Southern California, you have a much better chance of getting into the venue of your choice when you work with Stylehawk for venue sourcing. We know who the decision makers are and what they require of outside event promoters looking to hold events in their spaces. We can contact San Diego sporting event venues on your behalf and get you into doors that may have been locked to you if you had tried to approach them on your own.
When you work with Stylehawk, you also benefit from our established reputation in the sporting event industry. We have credibility as a professional event services company in San Diego, and because of this, venue managers are more willing to host events when they know we will be involved with the event logistics and event management.
We speak the “language” of those individuals in venue management. We know what questions they will ask and come prepared to answer them. We can also negotiate a rental agreement on your behalf and may be able to secure more favorable terms than you would have been able to get on your own.
Still not convinced that you need to work with a professional event services company like Stylehawk? We’d love to talk with you about all of the services we provide in addition to venue sourcing. Contact us today to learn more.
