After a rousing success last April in our larger 10,000 square foot "digs," the New York Guitar Show & Exposition was the largest NY Metro area Guitar show in two decades. We are in the process of selecting sponsors for the event and programs designed to give a sponsor a unique opportunities to meet large numbers of consumers in the guitar and music industry directly one on one.

Promoter Rich Johnson is a 22 year veteran, both as an exhibitor at major northeast Fishing, Boating & Outdoor Expos as well as being a sponsor and seminar producer/director for the NY National Boat Show in NYC for 15 years. Having worked closely with management on many aspects of the trade industry with many shows, Rich is unique in that the “flea market” look and atmosphere will not be present.

“Having a flea market atmosphere creates a flea market economy. We want to create a buying & selling atmosphere and to do that the venue needs to be light, open spaced and with a professional look & feel to it. We accomplished this in 2012 and will continue so in 2013.

We’ve secured Verizon again as our Silver sponsor along with WBAB, Long Island's #1 Rock Station as our media Sponsor & partner, Supro Amps & Guitar Center as sponsors as well. The Gibson bus will be on site both days and this year we're giving away a brand ne Epiphone Les Pal standard plus top guitar! Gbase & Premier Guitar are media partners as well along as we continue to work towards major attractions in the music and vintage guitar industries and this event is one the entire family will want to enjoy as will anyone looking for new, used or vintage gear.

BACKGROUND: There is no denying the incredible force that music plays through generations of families and even today. From Elvis to the Beatles to Justin Bieber, music is in everyone’s home and is truly a passion to most. Through the New York Guitar Show & Exposition, a company will have the opportunity to penetrate this demanding market. Most importantly, companies will be reaching the consumers that collectively have a need for their products. Clearly, any brand awareness or name identity to their needs within the sport will pave the way for enhanced consumer consideration of the offering of their products or service.

THE PROGRAM: The New York Guitar Show & Exposition is and willbe the most talked about Guitar expo in the country this year. It’s been two decades and now NY and the tri-state area will finally have a quality guitar show worthy of being in the shadow of the Big Apple, NYC. The event is completely designed to facilitate the process of education, offering advice, and helpful hints on almost everything right down to the specific products lines in the music and guitar market. Hundreds of products and service displays and exhibits will be featured at the event. Participants are encouraged to distribute product samples, as well as conduct demonstrations in an effort to further the benefits delivered to attendees through “hands on” product usage.

The event will run for two days for a total of 15 hours of exhibiting time. Charge for entry is $10 for adults and under 12 free. Through a sponsorship, your company will be in a prime position at the event and be afforded a host of benefits not delivered to other participants. Prior to the event your company or organization and its representatives will be contacted to participate in the expo and related promotional activities.
