How We Can Help You Profit From Our Events.
Each of Premier Promotions’ events is a tradition in the community it serves. For artisans, that means our patrons anxiously await each event and they come with a purpose—to purchase the finest handmade items from you!
We position our events with originality both in message and optics. Not only do our patrons discover uniqueness, but the media also recognizes the relevance of our events. This leads to consistent media coverage over every platform and an ever expanding audience of patrons.
We chart our success through data analysis from patrons and artisans. We consistently poll both groups so we can continuously improve. We implement innovative marketing strategies with an annual goal of increased attendance. We analyze artisan sales data in order to better understand buying trends among the public.
Our primary target is women ages 25-54 with a household income of $80000 or more. Approximately 85% are repeat customers attending our events an average of 8-10 times prior. In recent years, our demographic has shown significant increases in men ages 35-55, as we work to position our events broadly across every spectrum of hand crafted work.
Possibly the greatest testimonials of our events is exemplified by our artisans travelling from 48 states. We are proud to say we have hosted artisans from four Canadian provinces, Australia, Germany and Scotland.
