doing some catchup reading...
now remember... your display in the diorama workshop is NOT A BOOTH
yes indeed it is an area dedicated to the promotion of the hobby, a way to showcase to the people what can be done to display figures.
Yours will indeed be the BIGGEST in SIZE but not exclusive to the space intended for VISITOR displays like in the past.
I dont like the event to be all about ME, which is why i am MOST pleased to offer you a place to show off your awesome work.
Im gonna try an attach an image to show you the layout of the workshop.
your diorama is TOP center.
there will be some chairs available for you to sit behind the table it is standing on for you to answer questions and all.
but - without sounding like a total dick (can I say that?
) please understand it is still the endor workshop, its not a space for gathering that will block access to the participants of the workshop.
or TWO booths connected to one environment (floor space)
ex.... your idea for a drawing. I think thats very cool, but you cannot say have 100 people gathered around while people are trying to build trees.
does this make sense?
thats why I think the idea of both spaces is even BETTER for you guys.
being in the VISITOR area, you have a BIGGER space at the workshop to display then if you had just the same fan booth as the others
but if you are in YOUR the booth you can do ANYTHING that YOU WANT.
giveaways - prizes - folders - pamflets - promotion of your website etc... and still point people at the display and vice versa.
when at the diorama can have a sign saying visit our booth for more info and how it was created or something like that
I hope this makes sence and clears things up a little.
