Art Expo New York '18 - Advice Requested

If there are any artists out there who have been through Art Expo NY (or any of the other large Art Expo venues) could you please contact me so that I might heavily pick your brain for advice, please?  We would be very grateful as we have very little time to prep for this event while having just been accepted to 5 out of our first 5 applications for other shows (10 more pending).  We're a bit like deer in headlights at the moment.  Thank you in advance!TinaSee More
