After a rousing success last April in our larger 10,000 square foot "digs," the New York Guitar Show & Exposition was the largest NY Metro area Guitar show in two decades. We are in the process of selecting sponsors for the event and programs designed to give a sponsor a unique opportunities to meet large numbers of consumers in the guitar and music industry directly one on one.
Promoter Rich Johnson is a 22 year veteran, both as an exhibitor at major northeast Fishing, Boating & Outdoor Expos as well as being a sponsor and seminar producer/director for the NY National Boat Show in NYC for 15 years. Having worked closely with management on many aspects of the trade industry with many shows, Rich is unique in that the “flea market” look and atmosphere will not be present.
“Having a flea market atmosphere creates a flea market economy. We want to create a buying & selling atmosphere and to do that the venue needs to be light, open spaced and with a professional look & feel to it. We accomplished this in 2012 and will continue so in 2013.
We’ve secured Verizon again as our Silver sponsor along with WBAB, Long Island's #1 Rock Station as our media Sponsor & partner, Supro Amps & Guitar Center as sponsors as well. The Gibson bus will be on site both days and this year we're giving away a brand ne Epiphone Les Pal standard plus top guitar! Gbase & Premier Guitar are media partners as well along as we continue to work towards major attractions in the music and vintage guitar industries and this event is one the entire family will want to enjoy as will anyone looking for new, used or vintage gear.

The show was a great success and I give you a lot of credit for handling it all. I've worked on two international conferences in Manhattan in my past business life. There are people out there who have no idea what it takes to pull this off successfully but have plenty to say. Keep me in mind for the next one. Phil Cicciari
