TIPS FOR EXHIBITORS

Stand, smile, and engage

The Black Art Expo is a trade show which gives the opportunity for you to build relationships within the industry and attract buyers. Stand with a smile to invite people to view your work. Build your reputation by handing out business cards and shaking hands.

Have an open booth design

For booths with walls, avoid obstructing attendees’ view of the artwork on display. If you use a table, slide it to the side. Your goal is to let attendees get close enough the wall to experience your art!

Network with other exhibitors

Another benefit of a trade show is the ability to network with other artists who are exhibiting. Know that this is not a competition and use the event to make connections and artist friends!

Get marketing material

Be sure to take photos and videos for social media content that can be used to strengthen your reputation as an artist.
