The rest of the morning and a good part of the afternoon was spent at the Marketplace. Marketplace is the trade show specifically for festival organizers. There were many vendors there promoting their services and products that are perfect for festivals. I got a huge bag of promotional material that I am going to have to spend a ton of time sorting through when I get back and distributing to the many members of the festival team for their follow up.
I don’t generally like trade shows but I spent several hours at this one and made some really great contacts that I am truly excited about.
