How Not to Respond to Requests for Media Interviews
Scrapbook Journaling Tip: I Will Always Remember…

I'm teaching classes at MemoryTrends 2006!

I'm very happy to announce that I'm teaching at least one class at MemoryTrends in October in Las Vegas, probably two. 

One class has been confirmed -- I'm co-teaching a marketing class with my publisher, Elaine Floyd, sponsored by Craftrends.  The tentative title is "Marketing With News:  Keep in touch with your customers, in print and online".  Elaine will talk about traditional ways to communicate with a mailing list, such as print newsletters and postcards, and I will discuss "new media", such as blogs, e-newsletters, and podcasts.   I'm completely jazzed about the topic -- it's VERY me (well, and Elaine, too!)  And I'm really excited to be doing a marketing class, breaking away from my "usual" subject matter for trade show classes.

The other class has been proposed, but not officially confirmed, so I can't give specifics yet, but it will be a class project kind of class, with outline for retailers/instructors to go back and teach on their own, sponsored by a manufacturer with a cool new product line in the works.  How's that for vague?  ;)  Obviously I'll post more details as they become available.

I just wanted to post that I will definitely be at MemoryTrends in Vegas this fall, and I look forward to seeing some of you there!  Who will I see?

If it is on the weekend I might be able to drive up for it. If during the week then I probably can not make it. I will check into it more after work, just checking my feeds in RSSBandit during a break.

Very cool Angie! I probably won't be there but I'm very excited for you! :)

Mike, MemoryTrends is a trade-only show, so you have to be a retailer, vendor/manufacturer, or member of the media to get in. Unfortunately, it's not open to the public. (I don't remember you being a store owner, right?)

Melissa, great idea! I'll get with Elaine and see about converting the handout and PowerPoint into a PDF. If it works out, I'll definitely blog about its availability! Thanks for the idea!
