CRAFT is reaching out to artists who want to grow their handmade business by selling wholesale to shops, galleries and museums across the country. If you (or someone you know) are considering applying to a wholesale trade show, CRAFT has developed the perfect educational opportunity, All About Wholesale.
All About Wholesale is a one-day, intensive training event for prospective wholesale exhibitors and emerging artists. It is taught by CRAFT, the non-profit association of buyers and wholesale artists who are dedicated to the business of craft. You will get inside information from successful people who are buying and selling right at the tradeshow!
The course will be offered in conjunction with two tradeshows:
The Seattle Gift Show at the Washington State Convention Center, Meeting Room 401, on Friday, January 19, 2018, and
ACRE PHILADELPHIA, the American Craft Retailers Expo, held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday, February 16, 2018.
At both shows, course attendees will receive a guest badge, and even have a sneak preview of the show as exhibitors are setting up their booths!
The one-day course includes all the essential topics needed to conquer the world of wholesale:
Is Wholesaling Right for YOU? All About Pricing Your Products First Essential Steps Tradeshow Basics Booth Basics and Necessities Getting the Sale And Lots of Extras!
