Hello Orchidians, Ron Mills makes a good point about show publicity.
The moral of the story is this…if you are going to do a show for
the first time, or, if the show is being sponsored by an amateur group
or if the show is a first time for the promoter, make sure you nail
down what their plans are for publicity
My question is this, if the show is taking place at a distance, how
does one learn what their plans ARE for publicity. Then, can the
report be trusted? Any thoughts from the group?
I try to avoid first-time shows unless I have personal knowledge of
the organizers. Sponsors/organizers that are a charitable
organization, don’t seem to reach for vendors beyond the local region
and their members are usually good supporters of the vendors. It’s
the for-profit organizer that makes me cautious!
