State Fair Meadowlands: New Ticketing Transforms Marketing, Promotion and the Fair Experience

State Fair Meadowlands: New Ticketing Transforms Marketing, Promotion and the Fair Experience

  As one of the first large-scale fairs of the summer, many industry observers view the State Fair Meadowlands as a barometer of the fair season, particularly the large-scale Northeast Summer fairs.  The fact that the fair, like the vast majority of outdoor events, was cancelled due to COVID 19, only intensified this year's scrutiny as industry observers search for clues on what reopening entails, and what results can be expected.The fair was able to add six days, which extended business, but mainly lessened the impact of weather – 13 of the 24 days were rainy days, including severe thunderstorms.  Overall, attendance was up slightly, and the fair did experience a record July 4, but per-caps and spending far outpaced attendance upticks. “People came with money and when they were inside, they spent money freely,” ...   [read more]

Plush Supply Disrupted by Shipping Snarls, Increased Costs, Selection Shortages & Labor Issues

Plush Supply Disrupted by Shipping Snarls, Increased Costs, Selection Shortages & Labor Issues

  The vaccinated population keeps growing and people are allowed to gather at fairs and other events, but the effect of the pandemic is far from over. Public health concerns aside, COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on many sectors of the economy, particularly in the supply lines for a plethora of product categories. For the fair industry, this disruption is being acutely felt on midway games. The supply of plush has become erratic at best, severely back-ordered at worst. Coping with disruptions is something everyone has been forced to do and the 2021 plush shortage is another line item on the list of challenges being faced by game operators, carnival companies and other midway vendors.   Supply Disruption Shortage doesn't mean product cannot be found, but price, selection and timely delivery have all been severely impacted. ...   [read more]

  At yesterday's full committee markup of the FY22 Labor HHSE bill, Congressman Andy Harris (R-MD-1) offered an amendment to remove provisions 116, 117 and 118 from the bill. Congressman Rutherford and Cuellar spoke in favor of the amendment and Congressman Pocan and Chairwoman DeLauro spoke in opposition of the amendment. After the debate, Congressman Pocan offered a compromise of removing sections 116 and 117 but keeping section 118. Section 118 prevented employers who have had any number of listed violations from participating in the H-2B program. Harris countered and said he would consider the proposal but only if this provision did not take effect until October 1, 2022. Pocan accepted but the Chairwoman said the amendment would have to be rewritten and reintroduced. There was not time for this. Therefore, the amendment, without any alterations, came up for a vote and it passed. Victory!Congressman Harris did a masterful job defending the program and his amendment but he did an even ...   [read more]

  The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to consider the FY 22 Department of Labor Appropriations bill on Thursday, July 15.  The bill contains the language (in Sections 116, 117, and 118) supported by organized labor that would devastate the H-2B program and make it impossible for many employers to use the program – which likely includes your fair's carnival company and/or food vendors! This language would effectively kill the H-2B program.  The draft bill would:  Prohibit industries from using the H-2B program if they experienced unemployment in ANY of the previous 12 months over 10% (a majority of H-2B industries would be ineligible especially considering unemployment rates and COVID-19 over the past 12 months); Prohibit construction industries from using the program even in seasonal locations or occupations; Increase the baseline for wages to at least 150% of the federal or state minimum wage, whichever is higher; Require ...   [read more]
