Buyers Market unveils 2011 Artist Stimulus Package

From Christine Kloostra

As the economy remains unsettled, and many of our artists still struggling to make ends meet, the Buyers Market of American Craft is unveiling an unprecedented one-year plan designed to make it easier for artists to participate in the show. The 2011 Artist Stimulus Package includes an innovative range of initiatives designed to strengthen not only artists’ businesses, but the show as well.

  • Elimination of the two-show contract
  • Smaller booth size option for new exhibitors
  • Welcome Back Program
  • Invitational Collectors' Day at the summer Buyers Market
  • Expanded free educational programming for artists and retailers at the summer Buyers Market
  • Cancellation rebate

Please take a few minutes to read our newsletter outlining the details of each of these programs. These initiaitives, combined with existing programs already available to exhibitors, can significantly reduce booth expenses. The newsletter includes an article offering detailed information on how to save up to $444 on a 10 x 10 space at the February show, along with several other cost-cutting ideas.

We know that a strong exhibitor base is the leading incentive for buyers to attend the show. We need your help to guarantee that we have the largest number of quality exhibitors in our 2011 shows, and hope that you will share our enthusiasm for putting the Buyers Market back on top.
