How We Can Help You Profit From Our Events.
Each of Premier Promotions’ events has become a tradition in their community. For you the artisan it means our customers are waiting to attend each show and purchase the finest in handmade items from you.
“Christmas in the Country” was ranked #1 in the 2012 Sunshine Artist 200 Best, “Yuletide in the Country” came in at #75, “Springtime in the Country” is #66
Our advertising, marketing and public relations staff has positioned our shows as major events, so not only are regular customers waiting to attend them, but the media is waiting to cover it. That helps us continually expose our shows to new audiences.
We know we’ve been successful because our signature show Christmas in the Country is the only show in American to be ranked in the Top Five each year since 1998. The other events, Springtime in the Country and Yuletide in the Country have both been ranked among the Top 100 shows in America.
Our promotional plan’s primary target market is women with disposable income. We know we reach that audience because of the extensive exit surveys we do at each show. Approximately 80% of attendees are women between the ages of 25-54 with a household income of $80,000+. Approximately 75% of these people are repeat customers attending our shows an average of 3-5 times prior to taking the survey.
Possibly the best testimonials to our events is exemplified by our artisans traveling from 48 different states in the continental United States. We are proud to say we have had artisans from four Canadian provinces, Australia, Germany and Scotland.
What Makes Us Different?
Here are just a few things we do for our artisans:
- We provide an integrated promotional campaign featuring television, radio, newspaper, direct mail and online advertising. In addition our public relations focus all media coverage toward our exhibitors.
- We provide “no hassle” check-in that allows you to save time setting up for a show.
- We provide free seminars for exhibitors to help them maximize sales at each show.
- We provide a welcome reception for our exhibitors, so you can network with “old friends” and meet new artisans.
- We provide a break room with free food and beverages for you to take a break on those long days.
- We provide promotional flyers for our upcoming shows to all exhibitors at no cost.
- We can provide assistance to help you set up and/or take down your booth.
To ensure our high standards, we maintain a strict jury process so only the best artisans are selected to participate in our shows. We also execute an extensive marketing campaign for each show, which includes television and radio commercials on the top stations in town and print ads in the largest newspapers. In addition to a direct mail campaign and bus tours, we produce at least 40,000 flyers for each show which are distributed throughout the U.S. and Canada.
To those of you who exhibit in our shows, THANK YOU for your loyalty and professionalism that help us keep our high standards. And to those of you who haven’t yet participated in one of our shows, we hope you’ll take the first step in joining our winning team by submitting your hand-crafted items to our jury process.
