8) We Have A Long Term Vision For Our Shows
Our goal is to assure we have many future Home & Garden Shows and Emergency Expos. That’s why most of our vendors sign up year after year. Our mission is to exceed your expectations because by doing so, our job becomes easier.
We limit the amount of vendors in each category.
In the past, we witnessed show exhibition owners who became greedy by allowing too many vendors from hot categories such as real estate, solar, water conditioners, pest control to mention a few. By doing so they diluted the amount of potential customers for each vendor and hurt the overall show experience for the public by limiting the variety.
We turn away vendors as early as a year prior to each show because their particular category is already sold out. All of our current vendors have first option to renew therefore most of our hot categories are already sold out before we even begin marketing for new vendors.
While this has created many screaming matches on the telephone from vendors shut out from participation, we’d rather look long term and protect our current vendors.
The success of this philosophy speaks for itself.
