Guys, first I have to say thanks for all of the great tips and documents that I have benefitted from after having been a "lurking" member of the sight for only two weeks. I am an orphaned consultant with a super hospitality director who's a little too far away to do meetings with and an awesome director who is now three states away, so this is a lot easier for me! I keep hoping my team will grow so I can have my own meetings. Still trying... ANYWAY what I need info on are three events I have coming up. All are more expo opportunities than shows. My goal is simply to make them materialize into future bookings. They include: 1. A "Shopping Day" featuring many other home party businesses. It is a beachy theme-- "Come Sail Away" How do I make my table stand out? I know you guys will have some super-creative ideas for this one. 2. The second is also a "Girls Night Out" theme. It is supposed to be a fundraiser for Special Olympics, which my table fee of $15 will go toward. I am concerned that I will not have sales from which I can contribute a portion of the proceeds like other vendors who will have cash-and-carry items. Should I just offer to donate a certain amount per every show booked? 3. This one has sales potential-- I work at a farm store that processes chickens and has a lot of clientele that is very big on local, sustainable agriculture. To kick off fresh-chicken season, I will be demonstrating how to prepare these chickens (which are only available whole), including how to cut them up, roast them whole, or anything else you guys think might be good. What other products could I feature besides the knives, cookware, and DCB? It should be something that is easy to give samples of.
