New Opportunites at 2014 ACC Baltimore Show
Venue: Baltimore Convention Center
2014 will be a great time to try something new at the ACC Baltimore show. The public portion of the show will again be one of the best retail venues available to creative craft. The difference this year will be in the wholesale component of the show. This change gives artists an opportunity to promote ACC Baltimore as the destination for galleries, shops, and museum stores where creativity and quality come first whatever the price, not at the expense of the price. From the one-of-a-kind collectible to the affordable staple, it will all be at Baltimore, and it will be of the quality they should expect from an ACC show. - See more at: http://craftcouncil.org/post/new-opportunites-2014-acc-baltimore-show#sthash.4uZ259ht.dpuf
