ANTIQUE SHOW CALENDAR SITE RELAUNCHED

Antique and Art Show managers and promoters now have a fresh
opportunity to publicize their events through the recently relaunched
Calendar of Antiques. The self-service site creates a page for an
event that includes, links, contact information and a Google map. The
listings are provided free of charge.

“Shows small and large can immediately benefit from a presence on the
Calendar of Antiques,” says Promoter Eric Miller. “The site is really
a tool to help shows get the word out.”

The site includes categories for art shows, antique shows, auctions,
vintage markets, gallery events and museum shows. The events are
color-coded to allow for easy differentiation. The site also includes
useful publicity tips for using social media and getting the most out
of web sites.

Calendar of Antiques initially launched in May of 2010, but recently
underwent a format transformation to allow promoters to upload their
own information. Future functions are expected to allow users to
search for events by geographic location and type.

To list an event, simply enter the details here:
http://calendarofantiques.com/?page_id=22

Find CalendarofAntiques on Facebook and on Twitter @calendarantique
Calendar of Antiques is on the web at

Free sites, you will need to work at promoting, but it does pay off.
