A Message to Vendors
We’ve talked with Edmonton’s music collecting community about the necessity of an event like the Edmonton Music Collectors Show. While there are existing events where collectors can buy, sell, and trade their collectible vinyl and music memorabilia, etc., EMCS is the only trade show in Northern Alberta fully dedicated to passionate music collectors and focused solely on music-related merchandise. Prior to the launch of the first EMCS in 2011, there had not been such an event in Edmonton for over a decade.
Based on our first-hand experience with similar events, as well as the feedback we’ve received from the music collecting community, our goal was to organize an event that is accessible for all interested vendors and collectors. This translates to reasonable and affordable table rental rates for vendors, reasonable and affordable admission rates for collectors, and great organization, promotion and advertising for the event.
The Spring shows in 2011 and 2012 demonstrated a high level of demand in Northern Alberta for such an event, with vendor sell-outs and healthy crowds all through the day. Both the 2011 and 2012 Spring shows saw between 400-500 attendees. As a result, we have now expanded EMCS to twice a year — Spring and Fall. Our first Fall show on September 30, 2012 saw another vendor sell-out and about 400 attendees come through the doors. Our Spring show on April 21, 2013 show saw record attendance and sales. We saw 650 attendees total, and over 200 during the collectors hour.
