Storms are no strangers to the nation's art fairs. Show organizers and artists plan for inclement weather as a matter of course.

In the aftermath of the nation's worst storm in history, Hurricane Sandy, people on the East Coast are working toward reestablishing equilibrium in all areas of their lives. The heavy economic toll continues to be counted. This coming weekend's Fine Arts & Crafts Show at the Westfield (NJ) Armory has been cancelled by the National Guard.

How does this cancellation affect the organizers of the event, Howard and Janet Rose of Rose Squared Productions, in the short term and going forward? 

Additionally, Ashley McNabney from the Summer Arts Festival in Omaha will share information on recovery efforts after a storm swept through that show a few years ago.

We'll be talking about:

  • how show organizers make their money
  • the economic impact when a show has to be cancelled for show organizers, artists and the surrounding community
  • the importance of events to local economies
  • developing relationships between promoters and artists, their interdependence

This show will expose the economic uncertainties of the show promotion business and what show organizers do to stay afloat when the revenue unexpectedly is not there.

We will be taking calls and would love to hear from you. Call in: (805) 243-1338
