Oh yes, if you can bring hte demo kits with you it would be great.
TNN can't sell the demo kit contents as we don't own them... We're discussing the refurbishment in the boardroom atm. Will let you know whats happening :D
yeah, will bring them there.
I'm aware that TNN couldn't sell them but I thought you were talking about contacting supplier and ask for their permission?? Must all be in my head :roll: :lol:

Great idea re a FB page Heather 8-)

Just a note to whoever sets it up - rather than setting up a 'group', the message will get spread virally much more effectively if a 'business page' is set up (there's an option to mark business pages as non-profit). Page entries show on member's walls, where entries on a group are hidden in the background.

If retailers have business pages theirs can be added as favourites to the RNW expo page, and retailers can be asked to save the RNW expo page as a fav on their business page as well - cross-promotion.

If a blurb about the expo could be prepared for distribution to retailers by early September I'm sure most if not all would be happy to include in their newsletters to customers to help spread the word. If someone clever could make a button that can be added to retailers homepages and linked back to a page here with expo info I'm sure retailers would be happy to do that too. The info page could include reciprocal links back to participating retailers websites.

Tots to Teens has a what's on section - that's probably already on the advertising list. The deadline just needs to be checked to make sure information is submitted on time for the most appropriate publication of the mag.

Eventfinder is a good place to post up details of events too and free. There are heaps of forums that have opportunities to post events for free so if we share which other forums we're on maybe a coordinated effort could be made to post standard event content. I would be happy to post details at Mums on Top and Connect2mums.

OK, so first planning meeting 3.30pm Sunday 20 June at Sam's place? I can bring Audrey and pick Lisa up on the way through.

It doesn't look like there is a lot of 'deciding' to do for the venue at this stage - its more a case of finding anywhere we can!!

Great idea about designing something for retailers to put on their pages Helen. I think that is one of the things we were lacking last year. Does anyone have the design skills to do this for us?

Thanks for the FB tips!!
We did an event page last year but yes we need to gear it up a bit and learn how to use the machine.
Thinking of that we need to sort out the TNN facebook stuff properly at TNN Inc level... I'm watching the APing group to see how their meet ups go.

And we need to find a designer to do ALL the RNW stuff for us - we agreed at TNN Inc level to support our local centres and provide continuity by getting one volunteer to help us putting together posters (costomising dates, locations, blurbs)... and we need a general RNW October add to run on the forum areas where there currently are gaps... and... also on my list is to contact australia to see what design their 2010 RNW logo is like (see whether we use the same logo or mirror it in some way - eg: they had a washing line one year)

Lisa could you send me the PDF from last year and we'll have to compare notes..?
Ill update it and distribute it around... :)

Audrey, what day will suit you best to check out the venue ?

Rebecca, once we've had a look at the venue we'll be able to give you nr's on how many tables should fit and then id be greatfull if you could give me a list of retailers coming when you have them, so i can advertise them on the coming Facebook thing and stuff ;)

So for now we are definitely set on Welesley Centre- 9th of October from 9 till 4...

Wohoo let the organizing start! \:D/
