This lovely lady is Estelle Bogoch Stelmach -- SiWC Board member, teacher, writer, gardener and Trade Show Coordinator extraordinaire. This year, there will be a few changes to the Trade Show, as the Board has voted to include a section for Artisans. Here's the latest from Estelle herself:
The 2008 SiWC three day Trade Show is the place to be to meet with representatives of a wide variety of organizations, of interest to both new and experienced writers.
Past participants have included editors’ and writers’ associations, publishers, authors, and those selling software for writers. This show is geared for the ‘writing world’ and features products and information specifically for the attendants of the conference.
The Trade Show is open on Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Tables measure 6' long and can be shared. They are covered in white, fitted tablecloths. The rate for a full table for the three days is $75.00 and half is $50.00. The coordinator assigns specific locations.
With hundreds of conference attendees passing through the foyer all day long, the participants have a chance to sell their products and ideas, and meet and chat with potential clients. It’s a ‘social event’ not to be missed.
NEW THIS YEAR: ARTISAN SHOW (Juried)
We will be adding a juried artisan area, separate from our Trade Show. The hours, set-up, and costs will be the same as above. We are looking for high quality crafts, produced by the table representative. With Christmas around the corner, this is a great opportunity to sell your unique hand-crafted items.
To apply, please email 2 digital pictures of your craft, along with a full description of all the articles you wish to sell. For more information, please contact the Trade Show Coordinator, Estelle Bogoch Stelmach: firstname.lastname@example.org
There you have it! So if you are an artisan, looking for a market with more than 700 potential attendees, SiWC 2008 Trade Show is for you. You can contact Estelle at the email address above, or through the form on the contact page.
