Recovery in progress from the MCM this weekend just gone. I'm off to Derry this coming weekend for the 2D festival, but this time as a guest and not an organiser - which I'm looking forward to! haha.
Thank you ALL for making the weekend SO special! It had such an amazing buzz and the general feedback I heard was that people are really enjoying the mixed-in, community feel of the village. It's a heck of a job to organise, but it's so worth it if I know people have enjoyed themselves! *hug*
So, I totally failed to stop by everyone's stalls or catch people before the end of the show....if you're following me here and you exhibited at the ComicVillage, let me know your thoughts, guys ^_^
Did you enjoy yourself? Are you happy with the growth? How big do you think we can go without overstretching or saturating sales? (this weekend was 75 tables). What can be changed for the better?
Next show, passes MUST be organised better I think. For starters, we'll be asking everyone to bring their own lanyards and straps, hahah. Those of you who had your printed pass should have had little problem, but I know not everyone did (bad people) and I know that the industry desk wasn't set up when it should have been.
Let me know your feedback, even if it's just to say 'yay, I had fun'....as every smile I see makes me happeeeeee!
Huge kudos of course to: Anna Petterson, who helped me run the event on the day. Andrew (Pud) Ruddick, for running the CV stage so beautifully. And Matthew Sheret, who you guys won't have seen but who really helped out with the guidebook and some pre-show admin! You'll see more of him next show ^_^
You're all fabulous!
