After researching a variety of lighting systems, I decided on
halogen and went through a company called USA light and
electric. Their web site is http://www.usalight.com. They are
located in Patton, CA 1-800-854-8794. They have reasonable
prices and are knowledgeable regarding trade show needs. I
believe it took them two days to deliver…ground UPS to my
area. They carry a variety of products and also carry SoLux
lights and I believe that others in Orchid may have experience
with SoLux…they were not in my price range. I have track
lighting and am happy with what I purchased. Most shows give
you 500 watts of “free” electricity.
I would suggest that you use as much lighting as you can at the
shows…it does make a difference. I am new to shows as well
and still in my learning curve I am sure others who have been
doing shows for years will have some great suggestions for you.
My next show is in San Francisco at the Concourse at 8th &
Brannan Street-KPFA Holiday Crafts Fair on December 12th and
13th…visit me if you can I will be at space #94. If you have
any more questions, feel free to email me off Orchid.
