Artisan and Crafter Survey

ATTENTION ALL EAST VANCOUVER ARTISANS AND CRAFTS PEOPLE

Hi Folks,
I'm looking into the possibility of putting on a craft fair and variety show at the Roundhouse in December - “The Spirit of East Vancouver” Artisan and Family Fun Event - proposed for Saturday and Sunday, December 22 & 23rd, 2007, at the Roundhouse Community Centre. This unique event is meant to showcase East Vancouver artisans and performers by exposing you to a potentially more lucrative Yaletown/Downtown marketplace. We are currently negotiating a partnership which could significantly reduce the cost of venue and table rentals which we, in turn, would pass on to you, greatly reducing your risk for participating in this event.*
*The craft fair will be juried to maintain quality.
Other planned attractions include:
  • A corralled children’s area with a variety of top-notch children’s performances provided by Angela Brown (http://www3.telus.net/angelabrown/)
  • Strolling entertainment to support low traffic areas
  • A Saturday evening meet-and-greet (an opportunity for crafters to network and meet our sponsors )
  • A family-oriented Christmas Cabaret on Sunday night
  • A salmon brunch with bannock
To promote our event properly, I am proud to be partnering with Richard Forzley, Director of Marketing for Vancouver Civic Theatres (www.vancouver.ca/theatres), a seasoned performing arts specialist with more than 20 years experience in developing and implementing innovative, cost-effective marketing and communications strategies.
Marketing plans include:
  • 500 posters and 10,000 handbills distributed in the Yaletown/Downtown area
  • Extensive web coverage
  • Regular public service announcements on Co-op Radio 102.7fm
  • Paid advertising in the Vancouver Courier and West Ender
  • Comprehensive, regular press releases to the local media
We will use our own website as an online directory and a resource for media looking for stories, and will profile as many participating vendors as possible. I hope that you will take a couple of minutes to answer the the online survey to help us with our planning and marketing for the event.
You can find this survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=mpwE_2b4v1OsRB_2b91Z7t8eNw_3d_3d

If you have any questions or would like to participate in this great event, please contact Steven R. Duncan & Associates at 604-788-8340 or email srduncan@shaw.ca.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone you feel might be interested in this.
