    Default Ideas for a community event?

    Looking for ideas to host a community event on site.

    We have done Blood drives, and are now thinking of holding a community event on a sunday from 1pm - 4pm in September sometime and would love to hear some thoughts or ideas you have done in the past.

    Hi Guardian,

    Am pasting a link to MCG's post about her experience w/community events at her facility: Special Event Marketing

    Also we've involved local fire department in cooking hot dogs for us, we make a donation to their fund for educating schools about fire safety, combining a customer appreciation day w/a charitable donation.

    Good luck!

    You can get together with a local humane society or animal rescue organization and put together a pet adoption event, I've seen them done at other storage places and businesses. I don't know that it in any way attracts tenants, but its just kind of a nice thing to do.

    Were you in attendace at the March ISS Expo in Vegas? Tom Litton covered the topic of community events at this show. If you still have your seminar materials you may want to revisit them there may be some good ideas in there. If you need me to resend the materials to you, shoot me an email! akoupal@vpico.com
