I know you've heard that before . . . "new" or "improved" or another of those bizarre advertising buzz words.
But the truth is, TNNA's NeedleArts Market in Columbus OH, June 12 - 14, is full of NEW.
It's the same trade show TNNA members have come to count on, of
course. NEW products, NEW techniques, NEW fashions and designs. Easy
move-in, easy to understand instructions, easy registration and clear
show information. But there's a lot this time that's totally NEW.
To begin with is the TIPs program I talked about in the previous
blog. That's NEW. What I didn't mention before, though, are the other
There's a new event (didn't think TNNA could squeeze another in, did
you?). It's HAPPY HOUR! At the close of the show on Saturday (6PM),
you're invited to join your friends for a little music, a little nosh, a
little relaxation . . . along with a cash bar. Before you head out for
the evening, you can spend a little time catching up on the day while
it's still fresh on your mind.
Tne Needlepoint Group is also going NEW. At this show, they're
planning a "Needlepoint Showcase" highlighting the NEWEST artists and
designs. The Yarn Group has been brainstorming ways to make the Fashion
Show NEW again as well . . . so there may be some surprises in store.
In addition, TNNA is hosting a Keynote Speaker who will also address
the Retailers Luncheon. Again, a NEW activity intended to give every
attendee a little more . . . a little NEW experience.
If you haven't already, I'd suggest you register NOW.
That's not necessarily NEW, but it sure beats filling out forms and snail-mailing them in.
