CHA Unveils New Conference Model for 2011 Winter Show

Craft and Hobby AssociationThe Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) announced a new name change of the Craft and Hobby Association Convention and Trade Show to the Craft and Hobby Association Conference and Trade Show....... Well, now that we got that out of the way, this change apparently reflects the growing importance of education in helping craft and hobby professionals cope and succeed in today's marketplace by providing a greater number of industry professionals with access to CHA's Trade Show, educational sessions, networking opportunities and special events.

According to the 2010 CHA Member Satisfaction Survey, one of the top two requests for member benefits included providing educational programs that were pertinent to the craft industry. And even though a majority of respondents reported providing educational programs as an important Association function, 42% had never participated in CHA education. In previous surveys conducted, however, schedule conflicts and price were the top two reasons for not taking classes.

For their 2011 Winter Show in Los Angeles, CHA will implement an exciting new Conference model that is said to provide all attendees with greater value, more convenient hours, greater networking opportunities and unlimited access to the CHA Trade Show floor. Attendees are also said to get unlimited access to Conference programs as well as networking opportunities and special events too. This new Conference model for the CHA takes cues from other successful programs that are currently being used by many of the leading trade show organizations.

The CHA 2011 Winter Conference will feature educational sessions which are customized for things like member types, hands-on craft technique training, a variety of networking opportunities and provide attendees with unlimited access to all seminars, workshops and special events for only $25. All exhibitors at the CHA Trade Show have the $25 fee, and now all attendees and exhibitors will have full access to to the CHA conference including business sessions, networking events and special events that include the Keynote presentation, Show Event/Party, International Reception and the Welcome Reception.

To help accommodate this focus on education and to eliminate conflicts, the trade show floor hours have been moved up an hour and will run from 10 am to 6 pm during the first three days of the show. These new hours will provide attendees and exhibitors a full 8 hours of access to the show floor with greater flexibility to participate in education and networking opportunities only offered at CHA Shows.

According to President and CEO of CHA Steve Berger, "We believe the new Conference model and Trade Show enhancements are very valuable new benefits to our members. They were designed to help all attendees and exhibitors take advantage of the many educational and networking opportunities without the burden of additional costs."

"Having unlimited access to valuable business education and networking opportunities will provide CHA members with the information and insights they need to successfully navigate challenges and grow their businesses during challenging economic times," according to Michael McCooey, CHA Board Chair.

Attendees will have a lot to look forward to at the 2011 CHA Conference and Trade Show. The new model should help people manage time and really get the full experience of the show. The show is scheduled to run from January 29 to February 1, 2011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
