Can I get some help on the Event Vendor entity in Marketing for Dynamics?
My initial thought is this would be used for Vendors purchasing booths at my event....is that correct?
If so, how do I go about associating an "Event Vendor" to an "Event"
If not, what is the purpose of the Event Vendor ?
The vendor entity is for vendors whom the event planner hires for various services. As an example, we have created the Hotels (with room reservation and room allocation) as an example of a vendor. If you observe the vendor entity, under the types, there are 4 values - showing the direction that the vendor entity can be extended with.
If you'd like to add booths to your event, you can create a new booth entity - and connect it to the already existing Sponsorship (and Sponsor-able Article) entities. This way, you can capture your sold booths as event sponsorships, as they frequently are - and tie it all together in the event's finances.
If you'd like to discuss the use case in more detail - please hit me up at email@example.com - happy to help
