*Noted: The Greeting Card Expo is happening virtually May 20 & 21!
*Noted: The Greeting Card Expo is an event designed with greeting card makers in mind. It’s the only event in the U.S. built by the greeting card industry, for the greeting card industry.
Exhibiting in Virtual *Noted is easy and affordable, with packages that allow you to build an online presence that suits your needs. Over 50 member makers have already committed to exhibit, and we hope you all will join them. This year, we are excited to partner with Jewel Branding & Licensing to co-locate with their Showcase event which connects artists and agents with manufacturers and retailers looking for the latest on-trend art from around the world.
Virtual *Noted gives you an online space to highlight your products, connect with buyers, network, track leads, and even chat in real–time. Plus, you’ll learn from fellow members’ “Meet Your Maker” videos, participate in a Pitch Program, enter your newest creations in Noted@*Noted, attend relevant educational sessions, and more. Plus, with the launch of the GCA Marketplace, buyers will be able to click through from your *Noted booth to place orders. Be sure you’ve signed up for the GCA Marketplace and have set up your page so *Noted attendees can do what they came to do…BUY!
This year, you need *Noted more than ever…and *Noted needs you. The passionate, creative, strong greeting card community is the backbone of this unique show. Be a part of *Noted!
Thinking of You Week will have a booth at *Noted! If you are planning on a Thinking of You Week promotion (and you should!) make sure you include that during your *Noted booth setup. Companies running TOYW specials will be included in the TOYW booth!
