In all my years of working on our local trappers’ conventions, I have found that happy vendors are EVERYTHING when it comes to successful conventions. And happy vendors come from turning out huge crowds, eager to buy their products!
You can help make our vendors HAPPY!!!
Tell your friends and neighbors about this huge 55th Annual NTA Convention and Outdoor Show coming to Escanaba. If you are on social media sites, trapper’s forums or bulletin boards; you can spread the word while you visit these sites. And we have some nice colored posters that you can print out and put up at barber shops, auto supply stores, your favorite grocery store, or anywhere people congregate. I have found that almost every business will let you put a poster on the glass of their front door, on a window where people walk in, or on their bulletin board (if they have one).
There have been years when I have put up over 100 posters myself. And this is a NATIONAL CONVENTION! Much bigger and better than our own regional conventions and it deserves even more effort by our trapping community!
Also if you need larger quanities of posters or brochures to pass out at shows or conventions in your area, our if you or your club can put up hundreds of posters, I can mail some of the full-colored versions already printed on heavy, glossy paper. Even flat rate shipping is expensive, so please try to order large enough quantities and order only what you think you will be able to get out to the public.
