1) Shopping for shows:
To start taking advantage of the many great features of the Show Store begin by browsing and shopping the Show Store comprehensive selection of high quality, themed entertainment. Begin by adding some of these selections to your SHOW QUEUE, which lives on the top right corner of each page. As you add shows you will notice their show icons appearing in the QUEUE. If you are not already a Show Store member or you are not logged in, the shows that you have added to QUEUE will not be saved when you leave the site. So be sure to log in/register before leaving the site and all your show selections will be saved upon your next log in.
2) Finalize show selections, Email to Your Committee, Review Center, and Hold or Submit Event
At any point you may conclude shopping, and submit your final requests to The Show Store by clicking the CHECKOUT button at the bottom of the SHOW QUEUE. However, If you would like to share your show selections with other members of your staff / committee for feedback before submitting your event, you will be pleased to find a wonderful feature of The Show Store called EMAIL TO COMMITTEE. Just proceed through the first three steps of the checkout process and the EMAIL TO COMMITTEE will be the fourth step. After inserting your contacts and sending them your event details, the final step of the checkout will ask you to either put your event on HOLD or SUBMIT YOUR EVENT to the Showstore. If you put your event on HOLD you may return any time to edit the details, send to additional contacts, and eventually submit when ready.
The EMAIL TO COMMITTEE feature is a tool that allows you to share your show selections and event details, by email, to other members of your staff / committee and provides them with an opportunity to post comments on a private page, viewable only by commitee members. When your committee members recieve the email link and click through, they will enter the REVIEW CENTER for your new event. Here they may post comments about the event (in typical blog format) under the section called REVIEW & DISCUSS. In essence the REVIEW & DISCUSS area will create a live bulletin board for you and your staff to communicate through which will remain live until you submit your final selections to The Show Store.
3) My Showstore & Your Acccount Info
The MY SHOWSTORE link on the main navigation bar will take you to all your saved account information. After entering the MY SHOWSTORE area, your customer information that you provided during registration, can be easily edited by selecting either the ACCOUNT INFO tab or the PREFERENCES tab on the left navigation bar. To see a listing of the your events, select MY EVENTS from the left navigation bar. Here you will find a list of your SUBMITTED events, your events placed on HOLD, and your events that have been APPROVED. To enter the REVIEW CENTER for any given event, just click the REVIEW link next to the event listing.
4) The Show Store Contacts you & finalizes details
Within 24 hours of submitting the final requests for your event, a showstore representative will contact you by phone. This agent will act as your representative and will guide you through several simple steps needed to close on your event. As soon as you and your representative conclude the transaction your event status will be updated to ACCEPTED and a link to all the marketing & press materials for each show that you have booked will become live and accessible for downloading.
