Yes this would be absolutely awesome...! smile.gif This shouldn't be impossible.


Great Kris,glad you're with all of us on this. smile.gif
Do you think it's time to slowly start with preparations right now?
I believe each of us can do at least something to make it happen one day,no matter when.

That's an awesome idea, for sure not easy to be organized, but we could plan everything carefully and it doesn't have to happen next week, we could take all the time that we need to make it happen. Concerning possible sponsors, if we have something more concrete (date, place ect.) I could talk to Gibson, I am sure I could arrange something with them.

The Gibson guys are extremely cool, I have never worked with a better company (and never played better guitars smile.gif ), so I am sure I could arrange something with them, I would just need some more detailed information to present them. But yeah, let's start collecting ideas and see what we can do then, would for sure be a cool event.

It would be great if we can participate in any big european music fairs, to have a stand with some computers connected for the visitors to see lessons on GMC, and possibly to have some instructors jamming there smile.gif

I'll stickie this thread so it doesn't get lost - but I think we may want to start a specific thread (or several) to plan this.

The way I see it - it is not a matter of if we are going to do this, but when we are going to do it!

Not only would this be a blast - but it would be very beneficial to GMC (both community- and business-wise etc).

However - I recently "tried" to have a one week vacation, but it was impossible, I had to work all the time anyway. Preparing something like this is currently not doable.

If we give it a little time - I think the first step could be what Dejan suggested, to go through a music fair and thereby not having to administer it all by ourselves... And who knows maybe Marcus is onto something smile.gif - having a sponsor (in other words trying to find common interests with a larger company) would definitely help for this kind of thing.

Keep the awesome ideas coming! biggrin.gif

No need for rush here,absolutely not. smile.gif

I would like to have a strategy on collecting sponsors.
Per example,iPod as great tool for playing backing tracks and jamming over.
Apple is large company and I hope GMC doesn't need
to advertise them a lot to get a deal.

Another cool stuff are plugins,like GuitarRig,Amplitube etc.
Most of young guitarist are using them instead of real amps and pedals.
I guess we can get few of them as sponsors as well.

As for guitar and amp companies,list is too huge.
Marcus has Gibson in plan tho. smile.gif

So,we need one or few guys to eventually contact some of those companies in future. unsure.gif

Some big music fair is a good direction for this idea to develop. There we can be visitors and work on the stand getting people to know the GMC and holding some organized clinics in T Shirt. It would definitely be a great promotion.

Now would we be talking about getting some kind of a booth at the fair? If so, we could take turns manning it in our TShirts and maybe organise a breakout event where we meet and greet and ealso explain to potential new members what GMC does - so a way of all meeting each other as well as looking for new members. We could give a special show price subscription as well!

yeah I remember when I worked for a famous london guitar school, they hired some scantily clad girls (very attractive!) and they hung around the stand approaching people and handing them flyers (it really worked believe me!) - we got to hang out with them afterwards .... ahhhhh those were the days....

Hahaha, nice idea wink.gif
Well, I will talk to Gibson sometime next week and see if they are interested in something like that, and whoever has any deals or contacts to companies that might fit should do the same, like this we can get some feedback and make a list of sponsors that might be interested.

So is Marcus L - maybe it would carry more weight if you approached Elixir together?

I agree, the more people involved, the better the promotion is.

Does anybody know on what type of music fair this idea would be plausible. What kind of shows and where are hold? I know only for Musikmesse Frankfurt..
