A local organizer sent me a form letter asking if I’d like to rent a stand in an exhibition they were running. I run a video production company, and sensed a possible opportunity!

Me: Hi! Thanks for contacting me. I was wondering – do you want to hire us to film the exhibition for future promotions! I’d be happy to meet and discuss rates if you are.

Her response was amazing:

Client: I am happy for you to film the event for free if you purchase a stand at the conference. As you will be the only film producer at the event as I don’t have anybody else booked on yet.

I didn’t try very hard to be professional. My actual response:

Me: Hahahahaha! I should pay you to work for free?

She did come back and say a lot of companies ask if they can film for free as a way of generating leads (which is fair enough) and apparently as an official provider they’ll tweet out your details. But expecting you to buy a stand so as to do so? Hilarious.
