The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association 2016 Basketball Returns To THE QC Charlotte NC! It has been an interesting year for CIAA. We are witnessing the EVOLUTION of what the CIAA LEGACY and Tournament is suppose to be about. Part of the evolution championing sponsors to support of the CIAA Schools, support the many programs that need funding. The CIAA Organization is making it no secret the brand of CIAA will be protected and of course supporting the youth is very important. 1021 Magazine says KUDOS to that!
With a new Commisioner at the Helm, along with Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams supporters BOLD and POSITIVE moves will be taken to protect the brand and to put the focus back on what Tournament Week is suppose to be about. Of course where there are changes and BOLD moves, there should also be taken into consideration the feedback from supporters on how to move forward so the Tournament can be a great experience for everyone. 1021 Magazine will be a part of the positive moves and changes because FIRST AND FOREMOST we support the Youth, we support the Conference and the Tournament.

Noone who purchases an advance ticket ( s ) should have to WAIT because of CAPACITY ISSUES when they arrive.
There is a workaround for this promoters. Make sure you give the ticket purchasers a TIME LIMIT to be there
before letting so many non-ticketholders in before ticketholders arrive. Ticketholders do not wants to hear they have to wait
because you are at capacity. EXAMPLE* If your event is from 12-6 give the ticketholders to 3pm for the NO WAIT IN LINE FOR CAPACITIY ISSUES. That's fair enough. Sure you want more money but respect the client who paid for the ticket. Reputation is EVERYTHING.
VIP... Okay let's address this because some VENUES had issues with VIP.
VIP... Is for a SELECTED AND DEFINED PART OF ANY VENUE... NOT THE ENTIRE VENUE. It is tacky otherwise - seriously and really.
The PURPOSE FOR VIP has always been to party APART from the rest of the crowd either seen or unseen but clearly apart.
This is why people pay extra... VIP... PRIVACY... NO WAIT IN LINE... IF YOU ARE A PROMOTER AND VENUE... LISTEN UP... There were many complaints on how patrons were treated concerning VIP when we spoke with our reporters. 1021 was on the scene. It makes no sense to have all of your rooms set up for VIP seating and noone else sits, especially when your venue is limited in space. CIAA PARTY HEDS do your due dilligence and contact promoters and venues to see how the event is going to be set up. Then make your purchaess accordingly. No matter how you are paying, your spending dollars are important, so be treated acocrdingly VIP OR NOT. For a well rounded experience, we suggest doing different parties ecah year unless your party/promoter/venue provided excellent service and unforgettable experience.
VENUES/PROMOTERS You have to be careful of your treatment of others, you never know who is there to do a RECAP... like us... 1021.
VIP IS FINE... We Rock VIP but we also look out for those who don't want to or can't afford to. REPUTATION IS EVERYTHING...
Some artist for 2013 CIAA EVENTS did not perform due to issues with promoter's not honoring the contracts. With this said, PARTY HEDS
make sure you find out the total truth on both sides. Celebrity Parties are awesome but they're not always the best party, an FYI from CI Zone.
For VIP BOTTLE SERVICE Venue's with class Provide for VIP, NO PLASTIC CUPS for the pouring of liquor/non liquor contents. With the prices already paid for VIP the Venue has met to exceeded it's overhead cost, let them tell you no different. VIP Persons should have REAL GLASS to drink out of and again privacy not a velvet rope separating inches from others should be available unless there is no privacy room then the velvet rope is okay. We do understand and know all Venues don't have the proverbial VIP Privacy Rooms but the PLASTIC CUPS is always UNACCEPTABLE for VIP Patrons. Even if you aren't VIP and you don't want the plastic cups, request glass and you should be given one.
IF ONE DOESN'T KNOW The Correct Way To Handle VIP, Please hire someone who does. Contact us for consultation, we have much experience on how to keep the VIP'S HAPPY. Those not VIP are really the ones who make the parties. ALWAYS MAKE CIAA A REWARDING
AND GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ALL INVOLVED. This goes for Venues/Promoters/Party-Heds and Media Information Sources like CI Zone.
2016 HOW TO PARTY FROM 1021*Mature Talk Be Advised

CELEBRITY HOSTING PARTIES aren't always the most slamming parties... FYI.

THE CI ZONE will give our suggestions on some of the parties and promoters that deliver.
IF A PROMOTER DOESN'T DELIVER WHAT THEY PROMISED after spending your hard earned money...
