No one like surprises when it comes to budgets. There are a number of models that can be used to create a budget for an event’s AV and technology needs. All of them work in their own light, but surprises can still show up. And, today, those budget surprises do not always come from your vendors, but venues are adding new terms and conditions that can have serious affects to your plans.
In this session, we will share some common models, or approaches, event planners can use to develop budgets to support the AV and technology elements for their events.
