    Building, Managing, and Operating a Multi-Dimensional Event - Anne Hankins

    Anne will be delivering a talk that will provide the audience with an insider's view of the many aspects of the festival business. 

    Topics that she will be covering are:
    How it all began
    Buying talent in house
    Politics - mass gathering ordinances
    Infrastructure - Operations, volunteers, vendors
    Sponsorship platform - relationships, understanding partner needs
    Community participation and give backs
    Creating a winning footprint - consolidating production and artist routing 

    For 20 years, Anne Hankins worked in accounting in one position or another, from beginning accountant to controller of a multi-store division, and raised four children – three girls and a boy, now ages 17-23. Her favorite saying is “Living the dream,” the dream being not what you do in your life, but how you live it. Anne is definitely living the dream now as president of the three companies that own some of the largest country music festivals on the west coast: The Bi Mart Country Music Festival (now in its 8th year), the Cape Blanco Country Music Festival (now in its 2nd year), and launching in 2015, the Mountain Home Country Music Festival.
