I wanted to bring this to a new thread because I think it is important and don't want it to get lost on an unrelated subject. There are so many rumors going around and as far as I know as of last Fri. the show is on. The Atlanta show is now and has been since I paid my booth deposit several months ago, combined with the gift and furniture show at the Gift market. It is Sept. 12-14th. If there is any down sizing, it is only because the vendors haven't committed to the show, which makes it very hard for Decor to plan for space. In this combined show they are going to allow all gift buyers to attend the Art & Frame show and visa versa. To me it sounds like a great plan because many of the shops and galleries also have gifts. This way they can get it all done in one trip. The show has not been canceled, but I'm afraid if the rumors keep flying the way they are, people will be afraid to commit to the show. Attach-EZ is in, and going to stay in, and I hope that other companies will follow my lead. If we all just stop advertising, just stop spending money on promotion, just stop doing the things that have made us successful, then we are creating our own destiny. The best thing that could happen to our industry right now is for people to start spending their money again. There might be 8% unemployment, but there are still 92% working. Maybe we should start to focus on that. If we focus on the possitive, the negative will take care of itself. Please, the sky won't fall if the industry doesn't let it.
