Re: pics for you- David''s site


Are you serious??? The San Francisco Flower and Garden Show www.gardenshow.com is $1200 per 10x10 booth space and last for 5 days and they get an estimated 60,000 people coming through. $2,000 is outlandish and secondly it aces out people who those shows were intended to include...the smaller business who don't have storefronts.

Very irritating.

Our H&G show runs something like $2000 for a booth for 4-1/2 days. The MGs
get a free booth, the smallest with the worst location, because we supply
speakers. We could never afford it.

Donna, I understand what you are saying and agree about the benefits of
the
shows.  But let me give you an example.  One home and garden show they
have
in this area is over $700 for two days that might bring in 7,000 people.
Frankly, I can buy advertising that will reach far more people for less
money. I just bugs me I guess.
