Bad management at Louisiana Nursery Festival, Forest Hill, La
I would like to report the treatment I received at the LA Nursery Festival. They sent out a application that stated that you could have your same booth location if you paid on time. I sent in my application and paid in January. They cashed my check in January but did not give me my booth assignment until the Monday before the show started on Thursday, two months after my check was cashed. When I saw that they had moved my booth space I called and complained that they had put me in a space that would not work for my product. I was told that they had added 100 new vendors and I would have to take the spot. I have gone to this show for the last four years and had always had the same spot. I told them that I would try it this year, but I didn't know if I would be back. When I got to the show and went to my area to set up I was told that someone had asked the other vendors to send me to the office. I thought they had worked something out, but when I got to the office they gave me back my money and kicked me out. I was willing to work with them and was prepared to set up and use the spot they had assigned me, but they would not let me. The show is under new management and they do not know what they are doing. They even told me that next year they are not going to assign booth numbers, but they are going to let the vendors just pick their spot when they get there and just set up. That's going to go over really great, 200 vendors all fighting over the best spots.
