I have been at the Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce for over 6 years and have a pretty good grasp of my job. Having set up 19 festivals, I thought I would share some insight, give advice and maybe have a bright idea in the mix!
Who is the chamber?
I love our chamber! We do everything we can to help our business community – and with a very small staff. Todd Sykes, our fearless leader, is out in the community building relationships and making the tough decisions. Halie DeLoach, our “EVENT SUPERSTAR”, has proven worthy of such a title in her outstanding events. And then there is me….dedicated to creating festivals that create smiles and benefit our business community.
Further blogs to come….
some topics that I plan on covering include:
- Ideas for setting up your festival booth space
- Teaming up with complementary businesses
- Is a sponsorship right for you
- Demographics and how they affect you
- On November 10, 2017
