I will be taking part in a couple tradeshows this spring, however I don't have ANY experience with them. Never been to one let alone run a booth. Please give any advice you can. Thanks.

Are you talking ASR San Diego?

Free stuff. Everyone loves getting free stuff, but stickers are banned at ASR because of everyone tagging everthing.

If you're coming to S.D. shoot me a PM. I can help you with some stuff....

Well so far I am planning on doing one in Honolulu in mid February.

The ASR would be rad, though. I don't know if I'm set up for that. Someone told me the major companies were giving away 50-100 decks plus hella t-shirts.

How much is a booth at ASR and when does it take place?

I am ALWAYS down to give shit away, but as long as I think it might payoff down the road.

Who goes to trade shows?

Dunn,
if you can answer some questions I'll know a little better if I'm intersted in ASR SD..... Will shoto you an IM after. THANKS.

It's like $2500 for a 10X10 booth. But there's always additional charges for freight, labor, etc.

More info here:

If you do end up coming out, and need some graphics produced, I can help with that, but that's about it.

Rad.

Thats a lot of money. We're not ready for the January deadline. I am mos def going to keep it in mind for next year though. Hopefully we should have some money to throw around by that time.

What kinda graphics do you do, I might be interested? Thanks for the lowdown.

Thrashcan,

Yeah dude, fully. It would defenetly be a lot more affordable that way.




Dunn,

I could use some banners done up if you can do that seperate from the ASR thing. If you can let me know and email me with some prices.

General Excise License. Go to the county building. That's all I have right now- my shit is pretty sketchy too. I would like advice too if anyone can offer any...
