The Greater Kingston Chamber of Commerce is putting on a seminar entitled "Doing Business with the Kingston Regional Sports and Entertainment Centre" next week.
During the half-day seminar, business guru Ken Wong and officials from other cities that recently built downtown arenas, including London, will talk about ways businesses can benefit from its proximity. "It can be a huge driver of our future," says Wong, who is a member of the mayor's task force that oversaw the arena's site and appearance.
The essence of a successful sponsorship;
The London, Ont., experience;
Using the centre and the Kingston Frontenacs as sales tools;
Partnering with local media to leverage your promotion;
The value of local sponsorships.
The seminars will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the Confederation Place Hotel.
The cost is $75; participants will be offered after-lunch consultation sessions with presenters for an additional $50. Proceeds will be donated to the arena fundraising campaign.
