Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
If it walks like a duck, quack like a duck and looks like a duck, it's probably a duck! I wonder how many show participants fell for it?
Earlier today I received an email from the promoters of the Pensacola show warning about this. It mentioned that the hotel the email mentioned was a good hotel but not one of the hotels endorsed by the fair.
What a shame!! If the scammers would put this much energy into doing something constructive they might possible make a good difference in the world. They are smart, they just are down right rotten!
Thanks for the warning, Christina.
I agree...It is best to contact the hotels directly and avoid possible problems.
This type of thing is very common with large shows. Especially ones at convention centers. Always check with your promoter, forward any suspicious emails to them. A good promoter will / should email all participants with warnings.
