I’m organising a big professional conference ( around 1200 delegates over 2 days) for the hospital I work in. I’m experienced event organiser so have no problems with the arrangements, marketing and logistics, but as this event is free to attend I need to raise £100,000 in industry sponsorship and support to fund it and I’m panicking!
I work for a very well known specialist hospital with a huge amount of supporters so I think it will be possible but I am feeling the responsibility a bit too heavily so was thinking about engaging an external company to take this over. Does anyone have any experience of using an external company, or work in this role? Is this even a thing? What does it cost?
Any advice would be gratefully received and would calm my stress!
