Talk to the IA and have them help you. A few simple phone calls to the right people should get a little more interest.
the reason being is, it is the most $$ home and garden show for the amount of $$$ spent for the amount of people attending. So you have to work imo 2X as hard to make your company stand out.

These are just a few thoughts.
Good input, thanks.
