Aby and I are teaching a class at Memory Trends- CKMedia has gotten quite a few questions regarding the trade show- see below for some good info.
Here are the plain and simple FACTS regarding the 2007 and 2008 Memorytrends Conference & Expos.
The 2007 Memorytrends Conference & Expo is NOT cancelled. It will be held September 18-20 (education begins September 16) at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. Registration and exhibitor information is available at www.memorytrendsexpo.com.
The 2007 Memorytrends Conference & Expo and SMART Group are separate entities and represent their own interests.
The 2008 Memorytrends Conference & Expo is CO-LOCATING with the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) show. PMA DID NOT buy the Memorytrends Conference & Expo.
Memorytrends will create and deliver the best scrapbooking and papercrafting retail education program at the 2008 show.
The 2008 Memorytrends Conference & Expo will have its own hall and be accessible through its own entrance. Registered attendees enjoy the added benefit of admission to the PMA show floor... it doesn't hurt to look!
Past Memorytrends exhibitors receive PRIORITY PRICING & BOOTH PLACEMENT for the 2008 show. The MTCE exhibitor rates are NOT the same rates as PMA. Exhibit booth rates are comparable to past Memorytrends exhibit fees.
The deadline to sign up for priority booth space placement for the 2008 Memorytrends show is October 1, 2007.
Memorytrends is creating an event that reaches beyond our traditional scrapbooking/papercrafting markets with the intent of expanding opportunities for our industry and inviting relevant photo retailers to take a look at what scrapbooking has to offer. We think your business can benefit from the 2008 Memorytrends show and the co-location with the PMA show.
Memorytrends Conference & Expo still remains the ONLY all exclusive scrapbooking and paper craft trade show in the scrapbooking industry!
Memorytrends WILL NOT conduct a fall show in 2008 in Orlando.
