Next Podcast: Planning a New Art Fair - 5 easy lessons

(sponsored podcast)

Tuesday, August 20, 5:00 to 5:30 pm ET

Can Florida use another art festival? Does Palm Beach need an indoor art fair, during "the season?" Ingrid Robinson thinks so. Listen and learn how Ingrid gathers resources to host a show that will attract snowbirds to attend a new event. Joining her is Julie Mullen, co-founder of the award winning women-owned public relations firm The Buzz Agency, that is supporting Ingrid's plan. 

We'll talk about:

  • Developing an idea that shows success potential
  • Choosing the venue
  • Finding sponsors
  • Choosing the tech team and marketing team
  • Partnering with local charities

This is a tutorial about starting an event from scratch, networking with a local community to build a "must attend" show that benefits all involved, the artists, the charities and the philanthropic goals of patrons. 

The show: Artists and Charities, November 2 & 3, West Palm Beach, FL, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Learn more:

We are eager also to hear from you and this will be a call-in show. What do you need to know before you apply to a new event? What would you like to know about this one?

  • put your question or comment in the box below so we can discuss it on the podcast
  • call in to the show to speak with Ingrid directly during the show: (805) 243-1338
  • listen to the podcast at this link: Planning for a New Art Fair
  • or if you can't make it at that time listen later at this link or download it for another time. 

I hope we hear from you. There is a lot to learn for both show organizers and artists. Seeing behind the scenes can be very useful, especially to artists newer to art fairs.
