Part of my old job that I found to be a lot of fun was contracting with hotels for events. Getting them to grant concessions, getting just what we as a managing third party and my client wanted was sort of a game.
It was a game I was very good at playing and generally winning. (knock on wood that continues)
Some of the concessions I was able to get were a little ridiculous, but hey, why not right?
I promise this won’t turn into a wedding blog, but I just have to say that this part of the planning is fun and a little reminder of the part I liked about my old job.
Right now, the sales chick and I are going back and forth about what I can bring in versus what they’ll provide.
We’ll see where this goes. I don’t want to be a nudge or nit picky, but I do want to make sure that we’re getting a fair deal, in writing.
