PLEASE NOTE: There is a substantial discount for advanced orders that are pre-paid and received seven days prior to the show. Advanced orders also make for a smoother, more efficient move-in avoiding unnecessary waits, the possibility of selecting a sold out item, and show site delivery delays.
If you’ve attended the market you will have seen the fantastic string lighting we add. It’s a hit with our customers and brings the ambiance the space needs. We will be repeating similar lighting again this year. What we need from you is simply to add light to your own booth space.
A well lit booth adds atmosphere, can showcase your items to their best advantage and draw your customers in = more sales for you! Unleash your creativity and see what a difference lighting can make!
Here are some things to keep in mind when lighting your booth.
- You are only responsible for your booth and generally that’s a 10 x 10 space so it’s pretty easy!
- Keep it simple at the beginning. We found an article that we hope will be useful: Show Lights
(for more great articles like this visit www.craftprofessional.com)
One of the ways that we ensure that the quality of our exhibitors continues to be excellent is by re-jurying at the show every year. To do this we enlisted an independent jurying committee to help us out.
The jurying committee will be looking for the following:
- Product – craftsmanship and current to today’s market
- Booth – Inviting and creative
- Packaging – reflects today’s market
(side note: We also look at your website, photos and online presence.)
We don’t expect perfection but we do expect that our exhibitors bring their A-Game just like you expect from us.
How professional Images & photographs can help your business
There is a craft revolution taking place and a whole new crop of talented makers have emerged. These savvy makers know the power of online marketing and they are using it to their advantage! Facebook and Instagram are free to use and should be at the foundation of your business.
More than ever before this generation speaks in images and your potential customers are making a judgment of you from the ones you post. The quality of the images you use has the power to increase your sales so why not give yourself and edge and make your photos stand out.
Not good at taking photos? Consider hiring a professional to do a few promo shots. The cost weighed against the extra exposure you will likely receive is well worth it.
If you are serious about your business and wanting it to grow get some good images they will make a difference.
