As usual, the Show committee has begun preparations for next year's Orchid Show.
DATE: March 31 - April 2, 2017
We have the Regional Center secured for these dates and were able to keep the rental fee the same as the last several years. The trend for the last few years has been for attendance to be dwindling from our better years, in spite of our efforts to advertise and promote the Show. One problem is the proliferation of events on the Central Coast reduces our appeal. Meanwhile, many of the costs of the Show have been going up. The consensus of the committee is that we are able to absorb relatively small losses each year, due to the reserve we built up during the really good years. We see the Show as a public service that much of the public looks forward to each year, and in the spirit of service we'd like to continue if at all feasible.
We are looking for ways to improve the Show or modify our promotion to increase attendance. Please let us know if you have ideas that might help.
