Here's how it works:
  • A family of event-related businesses including DJs, bands, planners, designers, dressmakers, lighting, caterers, florists, photographers, hair and makeup, registries and more in this vibrant marketplace with food, music and trolley tours to the National park creates a DESTINATION for all couples who want to plan a unique day and start planning at the same time. We all work together to create a magnate to our vibrant wedding-planning destination.
  • You can partner with other event businesses; in fact, this is encouraged. A caterer can partner with a DJ, or a dressmaker can partner with hair and makeup, or a DJ can partner with a lighting company, for instance.  This brings more vendors to the EXPO and helps manage your expense.
  • Art Factory boasts hundreds of unique visitors every week, from couples visiting the Art Factory as a potential venue to couples getting married elsewhere just coming to tour the Expo, visitors to the Great Falls national park, filmmakers from NYC and beyond, etc.
  • Rent your own storefront Expo studio to use as your office/showroom. Benefit from all of the traffic generated by the Art Factory as well as the traffic that is built from and between the other businesses in our industry – geometric marketing.
  • Be included in our website and marketing as an Art Factory vendor.
