Eden Crafts has handled the promotion of each venue individually. For some, like the South of England Shows, the South of England Agricultural Society has more than adequate promotion to the whole of their activities.
In other venues, such as Kingston, Sutton and Town Centre Fair, Eden Crafts jointly with the council advertise these events extensively. We use different method of advertising for each venue. Some of these methods include:-
- The professional design and printing of posters and their distribution around the area
- Advertisement in craft magazine and the local and national press
- Erection of large banners
- A large number of leaflets, between 20,000 and 50,000 were distributed through professional bodies or though national magazine
- RAC signs were displayed
- Engagement of a PR consultant.
- Extensive Local Radio advertising. Example is Jackie Radio 107.8 FM in Kingston.
The most effective promotion appropriate for each venue is under study by Eden Craft.
Eden Crafts is fully aware that the success of its exhibitors and their financial well-being is of paramount interest to its continued success and who will pursue appropriate promotional activities to achieve this end.
