WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING EXHIBITORS!
Why vendors should come:
Included are elements of prepping, bushcraft, survival, homesteading, sustainable agriculture, gardening, camping, hiking, self-reliance, primitive skills, self-defense, financial preparedness, insurances for better coverage, and more! Vendors & exhibitors will have the opportunity to engage in commerce, launch new products, gather feedback, and network with industry peers. build/enhance customer databases and lead generation. Develop Social media content, etc. Showcase your products and services!
Our expected attendance:
Television, Radio, Social Media - local signage - billboard
Here's how we plan on getting the right people in the door:
Promoting the presentation/class offering and promoting select exhibitors and their products in advertisements rather than the generic reference and vague descriptions often used. Ad copy and Radio/TV production have to be submitted to the outlets by end of August - late exhibitors will miss any opportunity to be selected for feature in advertisements.
Our experience with shows:
2nd year show for me - 5th year as an exhibitor myself at other shows. Having had the same discontent and doubt as others about lacking show opportunities, I've spent the last 3 years working to provide better opportunity for vendors and exhibitors - included value added services and partnering with local businesses for the benefit of exhibitors. Vendors & Exhibitors sell the show. Without vendors & exhibitors there's nothing to advertise. Nothing to discuss. Nothing to note. As long as vendors and exhibitors continue to wait until the last minute to get involved and as long as show promoters continue to fall short - you can expect this unhealthy cycle to continue as status quo. If you're an exhibitor; you may have heard me reference Bullseye as "the people's show". Anyone who's ever spent any time talking to me knows that I'm very candid about show economics, I have no secrets. 100% of monies collected from Exhibitors and Sponsors is spent on the show. I pocket zero of that funding. The result of this puts me in "the pits" so to speak, with the rest of the exhibitors; relying on attendance numbers alone which a portion thereof too is earmarked for early registered exhibitors in the form of exhibitor profit sharing - which you wont find at any other show as of this writing. (and if you do in the future - you're welcome.). ~Kevin
