It’s time to register for the 2016 St Stephen Kiwanis Trade Show
Re: St Stephen Kiwanis Trade Show
Friday April 29th & Saturday April 30th 2016
Garcelon Civic Center, St Stephen, New Brunswick
The St Stephen Kiwanis Club is very excited to invite you to take part in their 2016 Trade Show. By taking part, not only will you have a fantastic opportunity to promote your business directly to the consumers of the Charlotte Coastal Region and beyond, but you will also be contributing to the fundraising effort of the local Kiwanis Club. Your vending fee will directly impact the Club’s ability to fund youth activities in the local community.
This is an opportunity not to be missed! With well over 1500 attendees to the Trade Show in previous years, your vending fee will go far. What other advertising venue allows you communicate face-to-face with enthusiastic potential customers? You have complete control over how you choose to promote your organization at this event – you can offer exciting give-aways or contests, distribute exclusive coupons for show attendees, and gather contact information from those visiting your booth to contact them post-show to offer special promotions. You can also sell your products directly to people visiting the show.
This showcase event has sold out quickly in previous years. Consult your advertising budget for 2016 now and seriously consider being part of this fantastic promotion opportunity. Register your organization by January 31st 2016 and your name goes in a draw to win your booth for free!
