Having looked at the cost of providing 3x shirts for each person on
the stand, I thought the money could be better spent elsewhere. I
think flyers are much more important at this stage. As someone
pointed out, event visitors will be absorbing a lot of information,
and if they don't take a piece of paper home they will probably
forget what they've seen.
I've been thinking about the overall look of the stand, and I don't
believe that looking low-budget is actually a problem. We're not
competing with the big names in the industry head-on, after all.
They may have a stand which costs £50,000 and will be thrown away
after three days, but the reason they have that money to waste is
that they are levering proprietary lock-in. I'm not sure how well the
heavy marketing approach goes down with musicians, anyway.
