Lack of resources
Event and Marketing Budgets, are usually too small, with high expectations.
More than 90% of event managers have said their budget is not enough.
So when you are looking to market and grow your event, you need to budget and make informed decisions on where to allocate you spend.
With resource limitations, a lot of event managers opt to partner with brands and sponsors to share costs. Most times, they end up being cheaper than hiring full time, this will free up your budget for other resources, including experiences, activities, insurance food and beverages.
