MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES

MARKETING CAMPAIGN
The 2017 One of a Kind Holiday Show Chicago is marketed via an aggressive attendee communications effort combining advertising, online marketing, outdoor marketing, direct mail and public relations, drawing an anticipated 70,000 attendees to artist booths at the show.

Communications include:

  • Show Postcards (with complimentary admission for 2) for artist use
  • “Promotional Stickers” template for artist use
  • Advertising in the Chicago Tribune and other key Chicago media
  • Show website with artist locator/image gallery feature
  • E-blast campaign to e-mail lists of 100,000 plus
  • Street banners throughout downtown Chicago
  • Public relations efforts focused on multi-media coverage including all important print, broadcast and online outlets
  • City-wide cultural partner outreach
  • Social media outreach including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo

ONLINE EXHIBITOR PROFILE
The Online Exhibitor Profile allows you to upload and update the information and images that attendees will see on the One of a Kind website. Your listing will appear under Artist locator page from which each one of our exhibiting artists will have their own artist profile with details, contact information and images. This is the most visited section on our website as shoppers will look to see who will be exhibiting at the show. It is very important to have correct information and fresh images on your Online Exhibitor Profile because this information often turns into pre-show and post-show sales.
Upon contracting, each artist was assigned a personal ID and password.
Feel free to contact Aida Sarvan at 312.527.7933 or asarvan@themart.com with any questions or concerns. You can access the Artist Website at http://mmpimodularapp.com/exhibitor/.

MARKETING MATERIALS FOR ARTISTS
Soon after contracting with the show, you should have received a shipment with 100 Show Postcards with complimentary admission for 2 people.

In addition, you will receive an e-mailable version of the Complimentary Pass that you can forward to your customer e-mail lists. You will receive this email on Tuesday, November 7.
