Today’s clients do not just want a party – they want an experience. More clients are turning to “out of the box” venues to delight and surprise their guests. As one of our resident “out of the box” experts, Jamie’s portfolio of exclusive venues has included 1 concert venue, 6 museums, 1 coliseum, 1 civic center arena, and 9 zoos. In this informative discussion, Jamie will talk through many of the rules, regulations, and restrictions on working with cultural institutions and how to work within them. She will cover how to sell the “experience” and how to stand out from the competition. She will be joined by an expert in “back of house” practice for a Q and A about the logistics of selling the dream – and executing the nightmare.
