The question was asked as every time I try and contact a venue, there appears to be conflicting preferred methods of communication. I was wondering which process works best in the 21st century.

The group came to the conclusion that undertaking the following activities all had positive results: Networking. Meeting people and getting business cards and email addresses from them.

Encouraging good word of mouth by ensuring that the ‘event’ is high quality.

Putting a high quality promotional pack together (both hard copy and digital).

Having a good website with a simple layout (no flash screen) containing:

Up to date information, Decent quality pictures and/or video, Concise press information and if possible previous gigs/engagements undertaken.
