News-Antique.com - Jan 04,2011 - Antique and Art Show managers and promoters now have a fresh opportunity to publicize their events through the recently relaunched Calendar of Antiques. The self-service site creates a page for an event that includes, links, contact information and a Google map. Listings are free.
“Shows small and large can immediately benefit from a presence on the Calendar of Antiques,” says Promoter Eric Miller. “The site is really a tool to help shows get the word out.”
The site includes categories for art shows, antique shows, auctions, vintage markets, gallery events and museum shows. The events are color-coded to allow for easy differentiation. The site also includes useful publicity tips for using social media and getting the most out of web sites.
Calendar of Antiques initially launched in May of 2010, but recently underwent a format transformation to allow promoters to upload their own information. Future functions are expected to allow users to search for events by geographic location and type.
Major auctions, antique shows and vintage markets have already listed their events on the calendar. Future functions are expected to allow shows to be rated by viewer and provide reviews. Dealers will also be able to advertise their participation in an event.
