Blue Print 2018 Update ! Another 30 Spaces Released For 20-22 May 2018 !


The first show of 6o Exhibitors from the 17-19 May 2018 is now fully booked. 

The second show of 30 Exhibitors from the 20-22 May 2018 is also fully booked ! 

Due to demand we now have a second floor booked for the second show, so we now have spaces for another 30 Exhibitors. These are already going quickly so if you would like to take part in this second show please go to www.blueprintshows.com/apply-to-exhibit or email us directly at blueprintmay@gmail.com. 

Our visitor numbers are climbing, many of the exhibitors are gaining business with new clients, and Blue Print has become an event both the exhibitors and clients are looking forward to, it is fun to be there ! 

The new venue is the Hudson Mercantile building at 500 W 36th Street, between 10th and 11th. Hopefully it will now become our home for the next few years, it is ideal for our type of event. This also means the show will stay a Boutique sized show, with a maximum of a 120 spaces over the two shows. We want to achieve a mix of established studios combined with exciting new designers and illustrators that can exhibit at Blue Print, and all feel they are part of a community. The fantastic trend driven artwork on display is designed to appeal to all product markets, where clients can both license or outright purchase the latest designs !

*** BLUE PRINT SHOWS MAY 17th - 22nd 2018 ***




Exciting news for 2018, we are moving to a great new venue at 500 W 36th Street, New York, it's between 10th and 11th ! Due to renovations at 404NYC we could not book it again for next year, but the new venue is ideal for Blue Print, it is a historic industrial building, it has lots of big windows, high ceilings, and polished concrete floors throughout.  

It's called the Hudson Mercantile building, and has a rare commodity for the centre of New York, a roof patio ! So a great place to have next years Blue Print Party, and just hope the sun shines, again ! 

The first show from the 17th - 19th of May 2018, has 60 exhibitors, it is over two floors and this show is already SOLD OUT !

The second show from 20th - 22nd of May 2018, has 30 exhibitors so far, this show is very nearly sold out too. Once this show is sold out, if there is enough demand we can extend the second show to 60 exhibitors too. 

At the moment we are getting enquiries about next years shows every day, so if you think you would like to take part and join a fun community at the Blue Print event in 2018, please contact us ! You can either email us directly at blueprintmay@gmail.com, or go to www.blueprintshows.com/register, and send us your details. If you email us please send us a link to your online presence, or include some promotional images, so we can get an idea of what you do ! 

So come on guys, wake me up when it's all over ! Love the lyrics to this but I wouldn't want to miss a thing ! 


Enjoy !

The Sunday Evening Party !

This year we decided to have a Meet & Greet Party on the Sunday evening, and despite the short notice it was a lot of fun and well attended ! A big thanks to Lacey at the Brooklyn Nest for providing the delicious cheese and chocolate tower, I think most of us went back more than once :) !


Here are some photo's from the party : 




As well as wine, beer and soft drinks, and some '80's music, we had some delicious cold food, there was not much of this left at the end of the evening :) ! 







 





No Brenda, you don't have to answer that question :) ! 


We are going to make the party a regular feature of future shows, it was a lot of fun !
