An experience we will miss this year –
Big T Productions Inc will not be attending TW this year, although we have always enjoyed the show. We will miss it this year, but we made a grave mistake last year. We spent a fair amount of money last year traveling to TW and purchasing some really cool stuff. I dont regret what we bought, but we ended up over budget in the end, and I had to make some hard sacrifices in the end to make sure we could open the doors. By hard sacrifices, I mean ponying up several thousands of dollars for things like fencing and other logistical stuff we needed the month before opening.
This year I am tightening the budget and the money I would have spent in lodging, food, gas, and other expenses I will spend with the vendors I have used in the past for specific items, as well as training and actor enhancements.
I think these shows do provide a lot of value, if it is in your budget, but I have to remind myself what that money could have been used for. It forces a different perspective on your budgeting, and you quickly learn about priorities! Hope to be there next year!
