Annual Tall Ships Conference
How to Run a Tall Ships Event on a Budget
Quebec, Canada January 2016
Tall Ships events are typically funded with cash and in-kind support from a variety of sources, including the city, the port authority and business sponsors. But how do you allocate funds across the project to deliver a successful event that meets the expectations of the stakeholders?
Sam Groom shared her expertise on running Tall Ships events at the annual Sail Training International Tall Ships Conference, held in a cold and snowy Quebec at the end of January.
Her presentation on budget planning, demonstrated how an extremely successful event can be delivered on a relatively modest budget and was attended by future host ports from across the world, who gathered in the magnificent Le Chateau Frontenac for the three day event.
