Why are you SO AFRAID to contact them?  They get calls all the time about gigs that they don't do.

It should not cost you anything-unless you are embarassed to do so----------

I do not want to contact the rental house because the venue itself has not even been approached by me for this event

SO if you have not been approached-it seems as if you are doing a lot of planning and work for something that apparently you have no voice in.

As others have said-it seems like a pipe dream on your part.

If I was the person putting on the gig-I would feel better hiring somebody who knows what is going on and who does this for a living.  A lot of money can be riding on these types of events.

Did you include all the speaker and line level cables?

Does it include a power distro?  How much feeder cable do you need

And so forth-----------

So the way to approach potential production companies is like this:

"Hi, I'm James and I'm putting together an estimate for a (fill in nature of event - EDM, concert, family reunion etc).  The system will need to cover about XXXX Sq FT/meters, expected attendance is XXXX, the venue is TBD but could be (name your venue and a couple alternates).  Date is also TBD but anticipated to be xx/xx."

If you did that with me, I'd ask you some other questions about the expected artists and any special needs they might have, whether or you or I contract the needed stagehand labor, how the insurance will be handled, etc and then based on those answers, generate a quote that is valid for 15 days.

I expect any professional supplier would do the same.  You're not promising anything and they're not out the time and effort to advance a show that may not happen.

I will do exactly this in fact i'll copy and paste it if you don't mind, now i just have to wait to acquire more money because as it is now i have literally less then 1k so the event is pretty far away from happening as you may imagine and i do not want to approach the sound company with so little money that i couldn't even take a guess as to when the event would happen.

How are we supposed to know what was included in the quote-since you didn't list items.

When renting pieces-it is REAL easy to forget important things LIKE A POWER DISTRO AND FEEDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A real sound company will have that on the truck and has a lot more flexibility for dealing with situations that come up.
