The CHA 2011 Summer Conference & Trade Show is less than 3 months away and CHA is in full-swing gearing-up for its return to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois July 19-21, 2011.

Please let us know if you are bringing a craft celebrity to the Summer Show. CHA can help promote celebrity attendance, drive booth traffic, and help generate news coverage free of charge, but we need to know ahead of time about your celebrities in order to promote them appropriately. Here are some of the FREE promotional opportunities and deadlines that can help you get a bigger bang with your celebrity appearances at the CHA 2011 Summer Show.

All submissions must be emailed to Victor Domine, CHA PR Manager, at and received no later than 5 pm ET on the corresponding deadline date for consideration.
