What they said about last year's show:
"It was a pleasure doing your show. The staff was very considerate;
driving in and driving out was simple. As a first-year show, attendance
was low but enthusiasm was high. Attendees were thrilled to see the
quality of the show and everyone was walking out with bags in their
hands; they knew what they were looking for and they know quality.
Many of the same people that I see at Paradise City were present at the
show. It was a good one for me. New customers that I actually had time
to talk to. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do a Hartford
show again. I plan on seeing you next year - same time, same place!"

"I exhibited in the Hartford Artisan Showcase 2015. Being a first-year show
it was lightly attended, however the percentage of people that purchased was
high. The quality of the exhibitors was excellent, with several demonstrating
on site. The Hartford area needs a quality show, and this can definitely fill that
vacuum. The Connecticut Convention Center is a good venue, with professional staff and easy move-in and move-out capability. Kudos to Kristie Gonsalves of North East Expos for bringing in high-quality exhibitors and putting in the time and effort it takes to start a new show."
