Gilmore Enterprises, Inc. is continually looking
for new exhibitors with unique and unusual work. We are very proud
of our Classics and the reputation we have built. We have researched
and chosen markets which have proven to be very receptive to our
events. We produce shows inside convention centers and exhibition
buildings where the artists and craftspeople have the opportunity
to sell in a controlled environment to an interested public. In
advance of and during each show, we blitz the entire area with
multimedia advertising and promotion in the form of billboards,
posters, television spots, radio spots, live remotes, newspaper
and magazine ads, direct mail, etc. We also provide our exhibitors
with stickers to be placed on postcards or mailings to their customers or placed on catalogs or flyers in their
shops and studios. We also provide exhibitors with links to our web pages, on-line coupons, etc.
Each show has set up or load in by exhibitors
the day before the show. All shows begin on Friday and run through
out is conducted Sunday after the actual closing of the show.
To be eligible to exhibit in
a Craftsmen' s Classic, an exhibitor must be a juried member
of the organization. All work must be
the original thought, design and creation of the exhibitor.
No kits, items made from kits, imports or arts and crafts supplies
may be shown or sold.
There are no jurying fees, membership fees,
yearly dues or commissions charged. The only payments required
are the actual booth fees
due with show contracts. Each of our shows is individually priced.
Booth prices range in cost from $370 - $520 per single space,
depending on the event. A single booth is 8’ deep and 10’ wide in most shows.
Booth spaces available in all shows are Single, Booth & 1/2,
