GATHERING OF THE GUILDS
SHOW REGISTRATION

2021 Gathering of the Guilds

While the show this year will be online we are looking at this being an opportunity to exceed the 18,000 visitors we have had in past years with a physical show.  The virtual show will run for a month.

Sales Process - Visitors will start off at the GOTG website, pick a guild which takes them to that Guild’s page on the GOTG website which will have all the vendors of that Guild.   Each vendor will have their contact information and 4 high quality photos that represent their work and products for sale.  Note that no sales will be done on the GOTG website.  From there the visitor will go to the artist's website/Etsy to view and purchase what they want. 

ALL TRANSACTION ARE BETWEEN THE BUYER AND YOU, THE VENDOR.

Benefits of a virtual show for vendors;

  • Low entry fees.  Booths were $450 at the Convention Center 
    • Professional Members - $25 (one of the benefits of being a Professional member)
    • General Members - $50
  • Advertising - the GOTG, LLC has a $10,000 budget to advertise the event.
  • Show Website - All visitors will enter through the GOTG website which is being redesigned for the show. Visitors can go from guild to guild with the click of the mouse.  All guilds will have the same look and feel.
  • Show Length - the virtual show will run from April 30 - May 2, 2021
