Lakeland, FL April 9, 2018: It happens: a new person in a position of responsibility somehow fails to follow through; a simple task becomes overwhelming, and "I got it!" becomes "Oops." Such is the case at this year's Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In and Expo.
For over a decade, 121five.com has provided Sun 'n Fun Exhibitors free access to its news feed, and allowed any Exhibitor to post its Press Releases during a window around the show. This is handy for Exhibitors, who can reach Press ordinarily beyond their traditional distribution, and handy to Press, which can pick up the exact Press Releases, "Direct and Unfiltered," in their original form, to rewrite or augment for their particular audiences.
Over the years, this service has been well-used, and its "economic impact" – its benefit to Exhibitors -- has been estimated to exceed $200,000 per year. This year, despite the best efforts of 121five.com and assurances as recently as a week ago from Sun 'n Fun's Director or Marketing, Sun 'n Fun dropped the ball, and the notices and login information were not sent.
So, 121five.com is offering Exhibitors this service directly. Please call Tim Kern, Publisher, at (Lakeland's area code) plus 651-6095 between 8a.m. and 6p.m. EDT (Lakeland/New York time zone), and he'll fix you up with your login credentials.
To reassure faithful Exhibitors: Airventure Oshkosh 2018 has already committed to using this free-to-all service again this year. [ home ]
