Vegas or Bust! May 27, 2009 19:48 2 Comments

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm taking my Kiwi and Pear characters to the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. I'm heading out this Sunday to setup for the show which doesn't start until Tuesday. I've exhibited at the show a couple of years ago but at that time i think it was a bit premature. However, I did learn a lot from being at the show and now that I have been running Wanart for a couple years, have some licensing deals and a book under my wing, I feel like I am super prepared and more confident than ever! For this show, the whole booth is going to be focused on Kiwi and Pear. I designed two huge 8' x 10' vinyl banners to cover the two walls of my corner booth, a lifesize cardboard cutout (picture below), I have jumbo 6" x 11" postcards featuring the design on my backdrops, pinback buttons as my free giveaway and even a trifold brochure with background information and pictures of all the licensed products for those serious inquiries! Samples of my book and Kiwi and Pear products that are already being sold in stores like the cards, the magnets, the flashcards will be on display. Pictures of my Kiwi and Pear booth in Vegas will be posted next week. Wish us luck in Vegas!!
