A proactive event organiser will know that adding events early will attract both the most and the best exhibitors. This is a vital part of putting on a great show. Some of the biggest shows for next year have already been added to the site. Our advice, if you have a planned craft fair for next year, is to add it ASAP.
Craft Fairs can get booked up very early, particularly in categories like jewellery and cards. If you want to have the best chance of being selected (as a best in breed), you need to make sure you have updated your listing before contacting an organiser via the site. Make sure you have a good shop window, a recent blog post, the list of events you are already attending and a good description.
If you are planning an event for next year, make sure that you are professional and prepared - get insured - write a terms and conditions and add it to the site - include details of your cancellation policy, make your terms firm but fair.
Members of the site can create their own blog, posting about things that relate to thier business or craft.
