I have been working in the events/ hospitality business for nearly 20 years now and I am looking for a more flexible job, instead of the 9-5 work life. I am passionate about sports, mainly football and good customer experience and would like to put it all together and create a sports speaker event business, where sports enthusiasts get to meet their idols.
To start with I would be setting this up alongside my current 9-5 job. I would organise the events on my own, with help on the event day from my wife and a small team of experienced event workers I have worked with over the years. The 1st event I would like to hold would take place in June, ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament.
What will the money be used for?
The up front costs of putting on the event are fairly high. First of all I have to secure the sports star and venue, and make sure both are available on the same day and I require a deposit for each. Both have already been lined up.
I am seeking an early investment of at least £1,000- £2,000.
Additional money to run the business will be raised from sponsorship and ticket sales once the event can be advertised. Future events will be able to run from profits from the 1st event.
Plans for the Future
To hold multiple events each year, and expand out of Oxfordshire in to other counties. Once established start to work with charities who would like to have their name work along side the business.
