“When we first started the show, we had 40 exhibitors and about 1500 attendees. Ever since we began using PostcardMania and continued our mailings, we now have over 120 exhibitors and 6,000 – 8,000 attendees. I love working with PostcardMania. The people are fantastic to work with. They brought me through every step of the way, and now I feel like a pro.” – Zach Lezberg Owner, Film Stage & Showbiz Expo
