"Gross sales for this portion of our air show went from ZERO dollars to over $30,000 in 18 days! The words “SOLD OUT” was not something I expected especially for our first experience with this marketing system."
The Niagara Military Affairs Council has worked along with our local military for many years in assisting to raise sponsorship dollars for our air shows. It has always been a struggle to achieve our goals and the dollars needed to run the show. With the change in Air Force regulations to allow chalets, it was wonderful to see another avenue for revenue.
Our experience with this new opportunity for revenue was great. However, the smartest decision in the process was hiring Eugene and Event Promotion Systems to promote and assist us in marketing and promotion. Gross sales for this portion of our air show went from zero dollars to over $30,000.00 in 18 days!
The words “SOLD OUT” was not something I expected especially for our first experience with this venue.
Our success was not the great looking chalet, linen table cloths, and great food we provided, but it was the experience and professionalism we gained by hiring the right person to marketing and help us execute this new venue.
Our relationship with Eugene was a great experience and allowed us to concentrate on the show itself, not worrying about sales as that was settled going in. I would recommend Eugene to any organization looking to promote their air show.

"In 2009, we were able to generate $61,645. of VIP tiket sales; $21,270 of which came in the first 60 minutes of tickets going on sale!"
I KNEW there was a revenue generation stream that we were missing out on. I wanted to tap into it, but I didn’t know where to start. Enter Eugene with his Air Show Promotion System and our show is over $60,000 richer!
At Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) HQ, we receive a TONNE of calls and e-mails from people interested in scoring access to our exclusive VIP waterfront enclosure. I knew there was a market to sell the CIAS VIP Experience to; but I needed help
getting it off the ground. By incorporating Eugene’s teachings and the Air Show Promotion System, we were able to generate $61,645.00 in sales; $21,270.00 of which in the first 60 minutes
our tickets went online! (2009)
We sold out all of the available tickets in only 6 days, putting money into our bank account before our event even started! And the most shocking part? The Canadian International Air Show is a FREE event.
The CIAS used the Air Show Promotion System over two phases of our initiative. Phase I saw the CIAS implement an opt-in form on our website, encouraging visitors to our web-site to sign-up and receive an e-Newsletter with inside scoop on performers, the show schedule and special offers from our sponsors not available to the general public. This created a database of CIAS fans to market the VIP Experience to. We had over 7,500 email subscribers (CIAS Insiders) sign up in just two months.
We added value to our sponsors by extending to them a unique, modern forum in which to advertise to an incredibly focused demographic. An unforeseen bonus was a group of CIAS 'Super-Fans' that helped us out immeasurably with a ‘Good Feedback’ campaign we ran. Most importantly from a revenue perspective, we were able to survey our Insiders likes, feedback regarding what they felt could be improved and what they wanted to see offered in the VIP Experience. It was like being given the blue-prints of a product that would guarantee sales.
Phase II of our project involved strategizing exactly what the VIP Experience would include, then marketing the *VIP Experience* and selling it to the public. Eugene’s experience with other shows and similar projects was paramount to the success of the CIAS VIP Experience. He was able to trouble-shoot potential issues ahead of time so we could mitigate challenges on-site. We used the feedback from Insiders to tweak our product to best ensure a successful launch. We built a relationship with our key demographic, an enormous value-add to the CIAS organization and to our sponsors. Post-show, we surveyed our database to find out what worked and what can be improved for the VIP Experience in 2012.
The Air Show Promotion System is user-friendly and highly effective. I say without hesitation that there is no way our initiative would have reached this level of success without Eugene and the ASPS. The ASPS created a new revenue stream for the Canadian International Air Show that was not only amazingly successful in 2009, 2010, & 2011 but will serve as a foundation for new CIAS initiatives in the years to come.
I wholeheartedly endorse both Eugene and the Air Show Promotion System. If you want to make money, get the Air Show Promotion System working for you.

"Eugene's Marketing System allowed us to track the effectiveness of all our advertising, build trust, and convert prospects to customers."
While 2013 was not the most auspicious year for airshows, I cannot imagine what we would've done without the Advance Ticket/Advance Ticket System. Eugene's marketing system allowed us to track the effectiveness of all our advertising, build trust, and convert prospects to customers.
As a result, our online sales were exponentially greater as a percentage of our total sales for the 2013 Memphis Airshow. We look forward to working with you in the future!
Very truly yours,
Executive Director for Marketing and Finance

"In 2011, we sold $51,044 worth of tickets online in LESS than 12 hours. We went on to sell $156,359 worth of tickets online before our air show started!"
"Over the last 20 years I have been heavily involved in the air show industry. During that time, I’ve helped to organize and have participated in several hundred air shows across North America. I first started working with Eugene almost 10 years ago on the Rochester International Air Show.
The result of using Eugene's Event Promotion System could best be described as "Extraordinary". In 2008, we sold over $105,000 worth of tickets online in less than 14 days. That figure does not include tickets purchased at any of our local ticket outlets or by our walk up patrons. We also sold over $50,000 worth of tickets online before the air show started. This provided us with a significant cushion against adverse weather conditions, and the advantage toward covering our costs related to the event.
Eugene also helped us build an online list of air show patrons. Of the people on our air show list, a phenomenal percentage of 31% purchased their air show tickets online.
Looking forward to next year, we will have a permission based list of thousands of people that have passed the two fundamental tests of a marketing system; the willingness to act on the purchase, and the experience of having purchased an air show ticket online and been satisfied with their purchase.
This will allow us to directly interact with people who have a vested interest in our event and to further refine our marketing efforts to increase that percentage of ticket sales. An air show couldn't ask for a better way to sell tickets.
If you have an event, you owe it to yourself to find out more about the Event Promotion System. You won't be disappointed."

"His presentation included items that participants could easily adapt to their event."

"We made over $35,000 in advance ticket sales for our event! We had $20,000 in the bank 58 days before our event even started."
When Eugene first approached me about using the Event Promotion System I was a bit skeptical. I had already spent good money on a new web site thinking that would be enough. Eugene showed me that there is a lot more you can do with your web site.
Last year I used the Event Promotion System for our annual Flour City Brewer's Fest. It was the 13th year we've had the event and our event has been growing steadily from year to year. Here is what we accomplished using some of the techniques in the
Event Promotion System:
We reduced our radio and print advertising by almost 50%. In addition, we integrated techniques for getting more bang for our buck when we did advertise with radio stations and newspapers.
One of the best things is that the event was paid for before a single person walked into the gate. We accomplished this by selling out our entire batch of advance sale tickets. In addition, 40% of our ticket sales were from walk ups and that money was essentially all profit.
This year I plan on integrating as many concepts as possible from the Event Promotion System into The Flour City Brewer's Fest.

"We constantly preach virtually everything you have included in your article . . ."
"Eugene, I have just read your article in the current edition of Air Shows Magazine and must comment that it is the single, most complete, factual, and concise gold mine of useful marketing information I have seen in years!
We have become the largest ticketing service in the air show segment, and we constantly preach virtually everything you have included in your article; however, I don’t think we’ve ever gotten all of it into one, cohesive document. Of course, virtually all of the information is also applicable to our other vertical markets."

"You were professional, prepared, an excellent speaker, and very humorous."
"Eugene-please accept my appreciation for the wonderful program on air shows and the work behind them. As in the past when you did a program on creating better web sites, you were professional, prepared, an excellent speaker, and very humorous. The patrons and I learned so much and were fascinated by the beauty in the photos and the stories of the different pilots. I am truly ready to go up there with you and see the world through your eyes. What a great night this was for our patrons.
The most impressive part of the program was your handling of the audience and the children in the audience. The little boy that came up to you after the show, will never forget this experience of seeing the flights, hearing you talk, and talking one on one with you after the show. I would not be surprised if I read down the road that this young gentlemen was indeed flying himself. Both of your programs were exceptional and fascinating.
