  • fancy a show at the NEC Birmingham?

    Hi All

    My day job is Head of Development the NEC. (so I'm responsible for staff training & development, don't know much about events organising!)

    However, one of my team is on our charities commission - this year we are supporting Marie Curie Cancer care, and i've volunteered to help with contacts for a sale.

    Every year in Oct/November, we host something here called the 'alpha sale'. this is run by the supplyer of the duty free stuff from the airport which we're attached to - and they sell off all their ranges of beauty and perfume products etc. Its an annual event.

    This year the charities group are going to organise a fair, and would like to have craft exhibitors - we don't have full details yet, but I thought you would like to know that this was a possibility.

    there are between 500 and 2,000 staff on site- and we have a lot of visitors from the airport - and this is before the people who visit for the alpha sale.

    So - roll up - who would, in principle, be interested in paying £30 for a table, chairs & tablecloth for the day ?

    mixture of crafts and bought stuff, we've got a book club and a phoenix cards lady who come in here.

    I would like to emphasise, that whilst I will definitely exhibit, I will NOT be organising this - and once I have an interested list, i will be passing you on to the coordinating team - and I will not be discussing air conditioning, table positioning, customer flow or anything else on the day!

    This thread is intended to tip off my forum freinds, I'm not going into the fair organising business!!

    So I'll keep a record of who's interested and give Sara the coordinator your details.

    Any questions let me know - I'm quite excited about it, but we'll see - they've done them before and they've done quite well, but never on the day of the alpha sale for the foot traffic.

    I've finished waffling!

    thanks

            Hi,
            could you add me to the list too. Would be very interested. I have been to an Alpha Sale, and there are loads of people, so would be great to exhibit.
