By providing products and services that reflect the mission of the museums and research centers, SE plays a critical role in advancing the Institution's mission: the increase and diffusion of knowledge. SE wishes to expand its magazine-focused live event programs, and through this request for proposals ("RFP") is soliciting a live event company to develop, produce, execute and manage a "thought leadership" event series in domestic and international venues. The project (the "Project") encompasses the conceptualization, development, sponsorship cultivation, production, promotion, and execution of innovative "thought leadership" event series that are connected to Smithsonian magazine and its reporting; infused with the mission, vision, values and reputation of the Smithsonian; and combine cutting-edge science, history, art and pop culture into fresh and important new perspectives on life in the modern world. The selected company will be responsible for all labor, materials, services, and equipment required to implement the Project in accordance with Smithsonian specifications, and all costs incurred to implement the Project. These costs may be offset by revenue-generating opportunities such as live event offering admission fees and corporate sponsorships. SE anticipates receiving a royalty on the revenue generated by the selected company for the Project. SE anticipates beginning development of live event offerings to initiate the Project by no later than July of 2015. Interested companies must meet the following minimum qualification requirements in order to be considered: (i) at least five (5) years' experience producing and executing high profile "for profit" live events with globally recognized national and international media brands; and (ii) complete back office and logistical operations capability. Please note that only companies who meet the minimum qualification requirements, as demonstrated through their technical submissions, will be considered. This is not a solicitation for a federal contract and is therefore not governed by federal procurement procedures.
