Are you ready to “Step out of the Box?”
Now that the County fair season is complete we all start assessing the past and focus on next year. How did we do? What worked? What didn’t? What can we do different? One thing is for sure…we want to be better next time! The Virginia Association of Fairs Conference may be where that next great idea comes from!
The Homestead will once again be our host for the 2014 Conference from Thursday, January 2nd through Sunday, January 5th. If you are a non-member Fair/Festival, or Business entity/vendor visiting this site and would like to consider being a part of the Virginia Association of Fairs we welcome your interest. Please feel free to contact our organization and speak with Joye concerning what we are all about and how you can become involved.
We all cherish our fair traditions but we must also learn to “Step out of the Box” and embrace new ideas. Our conference is no different. You will see old traditions return such as the Showcase going back to Friday Night and the Miss Virginia Association of Fairs Pageant returning to Saturday afternoon. The Conference will once again feature some great speakers and round table discussions. We will also practice what we preach and “step out of the box” by trying new ideas such as a Thursday Night Welcome Social, early bird educational sessions, a complementary Saturday Trade Show luncheon for all registered attendees! Plus so much more… So when you arrive at the registration desk please read over your registration packets for complete details.
I am proud to be serving as your Virginia Association of Fairs President and look forward to serving the Membership and the Fair Industry. Thank you for your continued support of the VAF. See you at the Conference.
