Trail Promotion

promo-top

In return for exhibiting in ‘The Art Trail’ all exhibitors have a duty to promote the event by way of distributing posters, flyers and banners.

Tips on where to put your posters and flyers

You will be given approx. 500 flyers and 20 posters.

Bundles can be left in places that attract tourists or that already have a tourist information flyer point. For example; Tourist Information Centres; bus stations; Railway stations; Hotels and B and B’s; Craft shops; Art galleries; Cafes, Pubs and restaurants.

They could be handed out to interested friends and families; leaflets in school bags; handed out at local events, such as craft fairs, car boots, garden shows etc.

Posters can be displayed on public noticeboards, shop windows, in your own front window or even inside your car

Please note that promotional packs will be handed out to all registered exhibitors in May.

Each exhibitor should select 3 distribution areas in order of preference when completing their application form.
