Hundreds of non-profit events are held every month on network-enhancing, strategy-slaying, and skill building. Non-profit events can be a board meeting, fundraiser panel, organization conference or a charity event. Non-profit events are not always high-quality and very big conferences; they can be small and large as well. Since the event is non-profit, hiring an event space that is secure and free of cost can be a huge cost saver and viable, at the same time.
The following are some great ideas for non-profit events.
Your Own Space
If you are conducting one business event, such as B2C or B2B, then you can consider hosting the event at your office or commercial area. Usually, people think of a swanky and impressive venue when it comes to such events. However, holding a business or non-profit event in your office can help you in earning their trust as you will be allowing people to see your office & letting them explore the workplace.
You can also use your house or your residential space to host a smaller non-profit event, discussion forum, small gathering, small fundraiser, or a cocktail evening. This can certainly help you in building a healthy and personal relationship.
Utilize the Space of Someone Else
If you do not have access to a suitable space, you can use someone else’s space. In that case, you can consider partnering with another company in order to host a non-profit event.
If you cannot contact a vendor, you can utilize your good reputation with a company, which has facilities and meeting rooms that are spacious enough to hold a non-profit gathering. You can approach a company for your events in exchange for a good opportunity of free exposure of free exposure of their business to your gathering or audience.
Unused Community or Co-working Spaces
Unused community or co-working spaces are a great idea for non-profit events. Usually, these spaces look for an audience or gathering of people as such gatherings will also give them an opportunity to showcase their space or area for events. However, co-working spaces are not always free of cost. In that case, you can consider contacting an unused community space such as parks, schools, churches, and even sports hall. Of course, these community spaces require correct permission in order to host a non-profit event, so you should make sure that you contact the relevant authority or the local council in order to get the permission. These spaces usually have rules & regulations as well, so you will also have to ensure that you don’t violate any of the rules & regulations.
The most crucial factor of finding a free venue is actually about the context. Flexibility and persistence are the two other crucial factors in finding a free venue successfully.
