… if you are exhibiting, are you ready?

tradeshowgirlI’m still hip-deep in follow up from January Shows but I don’t want to miss any opportunities — especially if they are FREE — for Surtex.  As I went through trying to get my inbox to a less overwhelming number of emails, I found a gem from Surtex.

If you are exhibiting it is time to get busy! And I don’t just mean busy with art.  Take a few minutes to see what opportunities the show has for your online listing, potential for free press, etc.  Here’s the link… click it NOW!

The deadline to submit, correct or change information for the printed directory is March 17, 2009.

Oh yeah… and the deadline to pay the balance on your booth is February 18, 2009.  OUCH!  It always hurts just a little to write that check but I keep doing it because I find it’s worth it for my business.

And not to leave anyone out, but if you are exhibiting at the Licensing International Show in Vegas in June (it’s gonna be HOT there in June – bring sunscreen) — be sure to check for opportunities with them as well.  (I won’t be there so I have no links for you — sorry!)

OK… I need to scoot back to that website and make sure I’m taking advantage of every free opportunity and considering those that cost some extra cash.  Chat with you later!  ~ Tara

P.S.  If you are exhibiting at any Art Licensing Trade Show, have you looked at my eBook on the subject?  I promise there are some good things in there — CLICK HERE to learn more.
