Lately at The Rankin we have been dealing with meetings, paperwork, and brainstorming on ways that our venues can be different than they have been in the past. Even though I work solely at the Rankin, our office deals with three different venues; The Rankin Gardens and Atrium, University Hall, and the Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center. The three venues are all equally important and utilized for different types of events.
In order to ensure that our venues are running properly and being maintained the way that Columbus State University expects it to, we have tours with just the marketing executive to see what is great and what can me improved. Since I work directly under the marketing director, I was able to join in on one of these tours. Last week we toured University Hall. The improvements made at this venue have been helpful to the University. More people are wanting to hold their luncheons and different meetings in this venue, and we could not be happier. It is very spacious and now up to date with decorations, furniture and technology equipment.
We were very pleased with the tour and cannot wait for more businesses and organizations to experience the new and improved facility. In order to ensure that these venues stay the way they are now, we must continue to re invent the way we market, sale, and expose our venues. This section of work is fun and interesting to me. I also am able to use my skills that I have been learning in the classroom, and make sure this is the line of work that I am aspiring to meet a part of is right for me.
