International Affairs: The first letter in 'IBMA' is ours


To all non-US IBMA members:

The 2014 World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC, USA, is approaching VERY fast!
At the IBMA's International Committee booth in the Convention Center, under the “Foreign Affairs” label, we hope again to present as much and diverse information as possible about what is going on in other countries than the US as possible.
For that we need your materials, old and current – posters of last year’s festival for instance or old editions of your newletters, magazines.
And if you happen to have a video of your event or band online, send us the file and we'll include it in our portable show of "Foreign Affair." Send your files to angelika@ebma.org before 20th September 2014.
So, bands, festival promoters, others who work in bluegrass...
If you are planning to attend, BRING YOUR STUFF WITH YOU, and take it to booth # 608 ASAP on Wednesday, 1st October, if you are a registered attendee of the Business Converence (exhibition opens 2:00pm), or on Thursday 2nd October (9:00 am). And if you are able to help staff the booth, which is also an additional opportunity to connect with people and present yourself, please contact us at angelika@ebma.org or rienk@ebma.org asap.
If you are not able to be in Raleigh physically, please send a packet of stuff, and we will make sure that those who are interested, can look at it and/or take it with them.
Until September 20, shipments will be accepted at:

IBMA International Committee, booth # 608 for 2014 IBMA
c/o Hollins Exposition Services
121 North Chimney Rock Road
Greensboro, NC 27401

Please send your display things only if you do not need them back! We are unable to send them back after the event.
Hope to see you or hear from you!
