We are getting ready to announce our 2012 Agenda on our site at www.lightupohio.com . We still have a few more "Elf-Ormation" stations available. You may ask "What is an Elf-Ormation station"? Well, it's a way for you to show others your display projects, and to share with them your ideas. We will supply you with a venue to meet, one on one, so you can give back to the community. We are setting aside a couple of hours in the afternoon for attendees to browse "Elf-Ormation" stations, and learn from others. Let me know if you are interested, as we need to wrap this up by the weekend.

Hope to see everyone at LIGHT UP OHIO 2012!! MAY 18th and 19th.

If you haven’t registered for the 6th Annual Light Up Ohio, you might start thinking about it. May 18th and 19th is coming very quickly, and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to start planning my display. The Agenda will be posted on our site in the next couple of days at www.lightupohio.com. The Agenda is just a small sampling of what’s in store for you at Light Up Ohio 2012. We have always prided ourselves in having surprises and firsts at the event, and this year will be no different. Where else are you going to get tips on being the very best Santa you can be? We have invited Santa Eddie, from the "Buckeye Santas", to talk to the group about things you need to know to be a professional Santa. Check them out at www.buckeyesantas.com, it should be lots of fun.

Are you ready to get your "Santa On"?? That’s right, we at Light Up Ohio are happy to announce that we will have in attendance the "Buckeye Santas". The Buckeye Santas are a Professional Santa organization, and they are recognized as one of the best in the country. Light Up Ohio is always trying to bring you the very best in the Holiday Lighting world, and these guys are the "ULTIMATE". Santa Eddie will show you how to be the very best Santa you can be, and you can learn more about their very unique organization. Chuck Smith, in PC magazine, has talked about how important it is to learn how to be a great Santa. Come to Light Up Ohio 2012 and learn from the very best. The Buckeye Santas will be "Exclusive" to LUO.

Also, there will be lots of personal projects set up for you to discuss with the people that made them.

If you think Light Up Ohio 2012 is just going to be about Christmas, THINK AGAIN!

Come to Light Up Ohio 2012 and let a Premier HALLOWEEN Prop builder show you how the pro's do HALLOWEEN. Valerie, from ChristmasLEDS, will be there to demonstrate the art of Prop building. She will start out with a discussion on HALLOWEEN Props in general, and finish up the day with showing you 1-on-1, how you can make your very own Pumpkin, Tombstone, Prop Ghost, etc. Also, she will give you loads of secrets and point you in the right direction to buy some of those hard to find parts. Valerie will also have on hand some of those great Lighting products from ChristmasLEDS, and offer some suggestions to use them in your own display.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!! You DO NOT want to miss this event. LIGHT UP OHIO 2012 MAY 18th and 19th.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!

Tim,

As you can see by the agenda, David Bruce will be in attendance from Displaysinmotion. David is a LOR rep, so I'm sure he can answer any questions you may have. It is hard to cover every subject in a one day session, and that's why we are the first to introduce Elf-ormation stations to our event. We invited various experts to make themselves available for a couple of hours, in the afternoon, to answer your questions 1-on-1. Hopefully, along with formal presentations in the morning, we will be able to get a lot more information to the attendees. Hope to see you at Light Up Ohio 2012 May 18-19.

Some people get a little confused when they see our name "Light Up Ohio". They think that since it's called that, we only invite people from Ohio to our Annual Event. Nothing is further from the truth. Lighting Enthusiasts from Ohio are very serious about their displays, and we love to share ideas with everybody. There is nothing better than getting a group of Lighting Enthusiasts together to discuss new ideas, and to give them a venue for sharing and teaching what they have learned.

That's what this whole thing is about. Helping others and "Making Memories".

EVERYBODY is invited to Light Up Ohio 2012. We have had over half the States represented at Light Up Ohio, plus Canada, and even one time Australia. So if you are on the fence about attending an event, and you are a little reluctant to attend, come to Light Up Ohio 2012. I guarantee you will feel at home, learn something to take home to your own display, and most importantly have lots of FUN with a great group of people.

HOPE TO SEE YOU AT LIGHT UP OHIO 2012 MAY 18th and 19th. You can Register at www.lightupohio.com

Where can you spend a day enjoying the friendship and companionship of the nicest people?

Where can you gain a ton of knowledge in a few short hours?

Where can you see, touch, and/or buy the latest products?

Where can you meet one on one with experts willing to share their experiences?

Where can you meet Santa and invite him to your display?

Where can you go to win amazing door prizes?

The one answer to all of these questions is Light Up Ohio 2012. Yes, Light Up Ohio will provide this and a whole lot more. The agenda is filled with great topics and some of the most knowledgeable leaders in the industry. And of course, there is the opportunity to renew friendships and make new friends.

Light Up Ohio 2012 is shaping up to the best one ever; but that’ll only be possible with your attendance.

Here is a quote, it’s from David Ogilvy, regarded as the “Father of Advertising”. It’s a baseball analogy and goes like this:

“Don’t bunt. Aim out of the ballpark.”

Light Up Ohio isn’t bunting. They’ve hit it out of the ballpark.

Hope to see you there!!!!

There are many, many reasons to attend minis, like Light Up Ohio 2012. Some that come to mind would be , great people sharing ideas, lots of fun, vendor discounts, great food, and world class presentations. You will learn from the very best instructors, and also be able to talk one-on-one to people who understand about our passion. You will be in a relaxed atmosphere, which encourgages you to freely ask questions about almost any Holiday Lighting subject you can imagine. PLUS mini's are a great way for people to get together, away from the hustle and bustle of the large events. It's a thing of the future, so be sure to take advantage of a PLUS mini near you.

Light Up Ohio would like to THANK Bronners, for their continued support. Bronners is the largest Christmas store in the United States. Plus, it's one of the biggest ones in the World. We are so proud that they have decided to support Light Up Ohio for the second year in a row. It is very humbling to know that Light Up Ohio, "Exclusively", has their support, and we are very happy to showcase them at our event.

LIGHT UP OHIO 2012 MAY 18th - 19th
