The Market Place
Every conference has a central exhibit hall (The Market Place) where agents and artists meet their prospective buyers. This is where Blu Chip Media represent our clients at every conference with our exhibit booth and get their CDs, shirts, hats, posters and any other kind of paraphernalia to the CABs (Campus Activity Boards) this is the only place where they can distribute their promotional materials during the conference. We also set up a television to play our client’s videos.
Marketplace usually takes place after each round of showcasing, and students immediately flock to the booths representing the acts that just showcased. After a “hit” showcase, it is not unusual to see thirty or more people gathered at a performer’s booth. Students line up to meet the act and to talk to his/her agent. They will also pick up some promotional materials to bring back to their campus.
