The load in/out is pretty great. Drive directly into building and unload at, or very near, your spot. Load out was fine, just a lot of cars and obstacles to drive around as usual. The booth spaces have lots of storage behind them and power is included. $30 app fee and booth fees were $400 (single) $600 (double) $700 (triple) $50 (corner fee)
That said, it goes downhill from there. There were people selling gutters, windows, bathroom remodeling, AT&T cable, shoe insoles, dog food, cruises, and several buy/sell booths. And those booths were all mixed into the artist booths. Customers were even complaining to me about the aggressive gutter guys.
The show layout wasn't great either. Lots of mediums clumped together. There were four other photographers within a few booths of me. But at least I wasn't next to the gutter guy or the hammering blacksmith.
The building also kept getting really cold during certain parts of the day. Many people complained about that, but nothing really changed.
Sales were barely OK the first day, second day was a total zero. Of all the artists I talked to I think one was interested in coming back next year.
Most artists who'd been coming multiple years seemed to think the show had just been getting worse and worse the last 3-4 years. I heard lots of “never again” during load out. I live a mile away from the venue and I won’t be going back.
