Here at Rochester Art Supply everyone is bustling around.  Tomorrow is the big Rochester Art Supply Trade Show 2010 so tons of product racks are being moved over to the High Falls Gallery for the event's showroom.  We are printing out last-minute sales labels, creating name tags, and renting so many chairs and tables that we can barely count.   

We are very excited for tomorrow but don't know what to expect attendance-wise as this is our first year holding the show! We are optimistic though and expect most of the presentations to have at least 30-40 attendees according to registration numbers.  Three different classrooms will be used for the presentations so we are setting each room up accordingly.

Isabelle Roche, from Henri Roche Pastels, just arrived last night from Paris, France.  She had a pleasant flight and is anticipating tomorrow's presentation.  She is preparing to use a projector in her talk as we'll have to do plenty of additional preparation to do for that featured event as well.  We figure up to 75 people will be able to attend this presentation as it will be held in the main gallery room at 6 pm after the product booths are taken down. 

We've sure done some marketing over the past few weeks and we are thrilled to announce that last Sunday we received press coverage on the front page of the Democrat and Chronicle's living section.  A great surprise to start off the week of prepping and fortunately, did attract a few more artists.  Gotta love free PR!

If you're planning on attending, don't forget that you can stay at Rochester Plaza Hotel and Conference Center for just $60 a night if you mention the show.  We hope to see you there and have a great trip to Rochester.  It should be a fun day tomorrow. wish us good luck!
