Deborah Free has acquired exclusive rights from Michael Brown to operate the Picturehouse marketing shows in the U.S. The American unit is now a completely separate company from picturehouse marketing Ltd. UK.
Picturehouse marketing US (www.picturehouse-us.com) has just announced plans for Picturehouse Chicago, which will be held on April 16 at the River East Art Center in Chicago. Table rates for exhibitors begin at $2,000 with a 10% discount for early bookings. Additional details may be found online.
Rumors are that client traffic at the New York and Chicago shows declined in 2007 and it was necessary to significantly discount fees for exhibitor booths to attract a respectable number of exhibitors.
