Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but couldn't find anywhere more appropriate. I'm in the process of arranging a fundraising event for my air cadet squadron which will involve an evening of prominent outdoors people speaking about their expeditions and activities. This post is to try and get some ideas from you, (the target audience) about how you would want the evening organised? To raise sufficient funds, the tickets will be £10, so I want to maximise the value for money. Which is best, 3 speakers for 45 minutes each or 2 speakers for an hour each? Have you been to any which were good, or bad, and what made them good or bad? Gear displays or the opportunity to buy gear?
I suppose what I am asking is what do I need to do to get people through the door?
Thanks in anticipation
