From Service Provider To Partner: The New Role Of Event Locations
First and foremost, an event lives from its participants. The top priority of every organizer is, therefore, to attract enough visitors for his event.
With increasing workload and growing responsibility, it is no wonder that around one in four event organizers (27%) would like marketing support from the event location – especially if the event is to take place in a new city or even a new country.

This includes contacts to local media and even sponsors who could also support your event. Work closely with the PR team at your location to develop a common strategy for event marketing.
