The Great Bridal Expo - Epic Fail for Vendors
Bridal Show Vendors - Complaint
CHICAGO, MICHIGAN -- We attended The Great Bridal Expo in the Chicago area this past weekend, as a vendor. After paying almost $3,000 for a booth, not including expenses for staff meals and labor, I would NEVER consider being a vendor with this company again. I spoke with only 15-20 brides, there were only a handful of vendors mostly destination wedding vendors, and a few Direct Sales (It Works!, Lingerie home businesses, etc.). After the first hour of the show, it was dead.
The company itself was not very efficient when it came to communication with vendors. I did not see any marketing done for this show, not even on their own Facebook page!!
Not one person from the company stopped by our booth to thank us for being part of the show.
I will say that the Fashion Show was a nice production....for the 10 brides that stayed for the show.
Thinking of being a vendor with The Great Bridal Expo? Reconsider using The Great Bridal Expo.
