The talented American and Canadian artists joining us this year represent a mix of all media from wood and metal to clay and glass and so much more. This preview of the upcoming market is sure to show what makes this show truly unique. This Preview Guide is more than just a listing of talented artists.

We live in a world where consumers know more about a brand than the brand knows about their consumers, and in an environment of constant connectivity and continuous story-telling. This digital ecosystem provides a space where big brands are forced to think smaller and small brands have the opportunity to compete on the big stage. The currency – attention. But, what makes today’s successful brands truly stand out? What makes something go “viral” while other things fail to move? Ben Smithee will talk about what it takes for brands to manufacture movements in today’s digital age of consumerism, and how the brand experience has to evolve in order to be successful.

Whether you realize it or not, you’re really in the media business. Today’s small and medium-sized businesses have the opportunity to be more relevant to consumers than ever, and drive business through their door and to their website with targeted and effective advertising and marketing. But, it isn’t the traditional practices that got you here to today that will propel your business into the future. Social ads, content marketing, streaming video, are all becoming table stakes to compete in today’s business environment. Ben’s interactive presentation will walk you through what retailers today MUST embrace and execute to stay relevant and grow.
