We post our events to TCWEP.com, and online community calendars (such as Minnesota Monthly, etc.) which not only includes information about your business, it also includes a hyperlink to your website. This builds your online presence in a big way!
We do 4 direct emails a month promoting an upcoming venue to a mailing list of 1000+. Our social media channels have close to a combined 5,000 followers. And for the on-site event we bring up to 60 sets of eyes to see your space in person. Additionally, we list your location in our event summary and include SEO-friendly links to your property.
We allow and highly recommend the venue use the up to 5 minutes of podium time to talk about the space.
Find the wow!
We have found venues that have the most success are ones that provide a wow factor. Whether that is partnerships with décor companies or something done with food and beverage. How the space looks and who partners with the décor on the space will be up to the venue host to decide.
TCWEP arranges for a volunteer photographer to take photos of the space and the event. You will have access to these photos for future marketing needs.
Complimentary Event Attendance
As a venue sponsor you and your team (up to 4) receive free attendance to the monthly meeting by selecting “event sponsor” when registering for event.
