HOW to PLAN for YOUR EXHIBITION

This is just a little teaser of what is on our brand new PAGE, check it out, share with your friends and contact us if you wish to know more.

PLANNING

This is a very important and neccessary part of organising your Exhibition and needs to be thought about early on, as does deciding what your exhibition is about.
Think about a 'Theme' or not, and a 'Title'. How many items you will need to produce.
How many will need framing, know how many, or how much, will fit comfortably into the exhibition room you have chosen, without being either too sparse or overfilled....................................

Oh, dear, so so  many things to think about....
These are all things which you need to look into.
 Soooo my BEST recommendation is to get a booklet and start to make notes very early on.
Add to it as you think of things .......................  check them off or add more items..........


You may wish to save our site in your 'Book Marks' if so select the RSS feed on the right hand side of the page ( this is the Subscribe to section) and set yourself up according to your specific computer so that you have us available at the touch of a button, so to speak.

Happy Exhibition Planning from
Admin Dianne.
