If you own a small business in Florida, you may want to consider participating as a vendor in the Florida State Fair. The Florida State Fair is a huge event that takes place in Tampa, Florida in February in each year. The Florida State Fair draws in over $1.5 million visitors each year. The age range for visitors is 25 to 45. Approximately 44.6% are male and 55.4% are female. The average annual household income of visitors is $49,000. The average visitors spends $123.00 at the fair ($50 goes towards food and entertainment, the other $73.00 goes towards other expenditures). That’s a large number of people (spending money) that can be exposed to your business (and potentially become life long customers). It’s a great marketing opportunity for your small business, especially if your target market falls in line with the demographic that attends the fair each year.
