Remember when you were a kid and you WANTED someone to play 20 questions with? Remember how annoyed our parents got when we just forced them to play 20 questions without any regard to subject matter, location, and timing? There were never any reports to follow those games, either.
Thanks to VenueDataSource (VDS), you can now play 20 questions that could positively impact the future of your venue’s Capital Funding availability. And when you take the survey, there is a free report to follow, too!
The VenueDataSource Capital Funding Survey is a short, 20-question survey that should take less than 10 minutes to complete but make an enormous impact on your venue and others. There also are three $100 American Express Gift Cheques on the line that will be given randomly to three venue managers who complete the survey. Everyone that completes the survey will receive a report of a comprehensive look at the findings for no charge.
That’s right, complete the survey and the collective results will be compiled into a handy report and given to you for FREE. Just by taking the brief survey, you’ve already saved money that could now be slated for capital improvements. Good job you!
The Capital Funding survey is one of the most important documents produced by VDS. Every venue manager knows that financing our venues is a tricky tango between increasing sales and decreasing expenses.
But what about capital expenses? How do you finance major construction, renovation, or other large-scale projects? How do you and your peers pay for capital improvement programs? How many of our peers have a major tenant or vendor investing in our venues as a condition of their contracts with us?
We want to find the answers to those and other capital funds-related questions in this survey.
In mere minutes, you can help the future of venue operations and maybe learn more than a thing or two about where you can turn over a new leaf and find capital dollars.
In this ever-expanding age of technology, we are constantly trying to better our venues, our operations, and our staff. Change, more often than not, costs money. Our surveys are a way of gathering great information, from all over the venue family, quickly, confidentially, and succinctly—and have helped our members save thousands of dollars in annual operating costs. Now we’re working on helping members find thousands of new dollars for capital expenses.
The Capital Funding Survey invitations were sent out February 12-13 to one person per venue. If your venue has not received the invite, contact VenueDataFrank, Frank Ingoglia, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Frank can help with this or any other survey question.
VDS is here to help our members achieve amazing things. Information is empowerment and we rely on you and the other members to keep moving forward and accomplishing our goals.
You can find us on this monthly blog, on Twitter @VenueDataFrank, in weekly newsletters discussing trends, facts and asking poll questions, at the sector conference, and VenueConnect—everywhere you VDS, you’ll find us. No matter where you go—there we are.
