International Management Group (IMG) is the oldest and biggest of the agent groups. They represent athletes in virtually every sport. They also produce events, television shows, and find sponsors. IMG has hired you to create a sporting event that will generate revenue and positive exposure for IMG among amateur athletes. IMG has asked you to be creative and thorough as the event manager.
Your task is to prepare a proposal for your sporting event to IMG asking for their approval to sponsor. Please note that IMG will be a sponsor, but not the sole sponsor for this event. You will be responsible for gathering other sponsorships in addition to IMG.

Your proposal must include, but are not limited to, the following items:
Written agreement letter (proposal) to IMG explaining what the event is, the purpose of the event, where the event will be located, how the event will work, and the goals associated with the outcome of hosting the event (from a business perspective). Letter also includes: term, event, site/date, sponsor benefits, obligations of sponsors, insurance statement, and waiver.
Budget Proposal for operating the event (line items)

This project can be submitted in a word document or PowerPoint presentation. The paper should be 5 to 7 pages or approximately 20 slides in length. You will be graded on your ability to present a proposal that is thorough, detailed, creative, valid, and easily understood.
