Budget Plan and Expenditure
When demising a budget/expenditure plan for this particular project, with it being a personal event, I knew the budget would be depicted from two main sources; the Coventry Media Loan Shop and myself.
Budgeting is an ongoing process throughout your event planning, as dependent on a combination of; identifying, gathering and summarising all the correct materials needed pre and post event.
There’s also the aspect of the variation of prices, as they could differ from the point of finding to the point of buying. The expenditure is the conclusive price list of what has been spent, where it was bought and for how much. I am fortunate that a high percentage of the equipment/materials were made available to me buy the Media Loan Shop.

There is other way in finding the resources needed.
‘Sponsorship is a business relationship between a provider of funds, resources or services and an individual, event or organisation which offers in return some rights and association that may be used for commercial advantage.’ (van der Wagen,L:2010;108)
Being that this event is of a small scale, sponsorship is considered to be a risk. I feel this isn’t needed for my exhibition as I have found other methods of fundraising that will attract my audience.
