So, the longer your listing is on our website, the better chances of
it being noticed in plenty of time to make arrangements to vend or to attend.
All banner listings are on a “Per Show” basis and include all show information that the promoter wants (the more the information, the smaller the text will become to make room) and imagery (many prefer just to add their logo).
Promoters are welcome to submit their own banners, however, the cost to place and list them on this website is the same as the cost of the banners – see banner examples for costs and dimensions.
Should you choose to make your own, please save them as either a jpeg, png, or gif format.
Details for making personalized banners need to be included in requests, if there are images to add, please attach them to your e-mail with your banner order information.
Banners can be linked to the promoter’s website, coupon pdf, show flyer pdf, social media page of their choice, or google map of the venue. Only one link per banner, all other links can be added to the event listing details.
The examples below are banners with show information typed above the banner ad. We do not highlight the show information that is with banner ads. Your *logo may be added or ethical image designs may be used.
*A logo is a graphic mark, emblem, or symbol used to aid and promote public identification and recognition of the company or business.

The complimentary side listings are only complimentary when all the shows (10+) are listed in a banner or highlighted format.
Otherwise, there is a $25.00 monthly fee for a space on that column to advertise (gun/knife/prepper/militaria) show listings … the right column pops up before the listings line-up does on small monitors/screens like cell phones and small iPads making it seen first, which is what all promoters want, their listings to be seen first.
