    Next week’s Short North Arts District member meeting agenda includes a presentation for this festival. Does anyone have any info regarding the FMMF?

    Great concept. It’s high time the fashion industry in Columbus gets more attention. Still not sure about the festival name though…..

    There is always room for more exposure for the local fashion industry. But I think Highball Halloween has already done a fair job getting national attention[/url] for couture fashion in Columbus.

    Agreed with the name. A simple google search came up with this: Fashion Meets Music[/url]

    Hey what’s up guys! Glad to see you’re interested in what we’re putting together. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of questions answered at the Arts District Member Meeting! Until then, check us out on our social networks at Facebook and Twitter! We’ll also be updating our website[/url] so keep up with us there as well.

    Anything urgent that needs to be asked can be directed to [email protected].

    Thanks!

    This could really work here – So exciting! It has elements of Halloween Highball and Independent’s Day as well as good tidbits from National events, while bringing it’s own distinctive accent.

    I was happy to see they already addressed the need for bicycle parking!

    Would this be an annual event if successful or just a onetime event?

    So what do we know about the promoters and organizers? The website is nice, but do we know who these folks are and what their track record is and whether they will be able to pull off a massive event, sounds more aspirational than practical. How will the Greek Festival and FMMF impact downtown and the SN?

    Had a bit of a run around on the interwebs finding Greg Poppel, Director of Operations. Seems he is GLP Associates an investment advisor out of Michigan? or Hillard. Sound man, an avid flyer of drones(radio controlled aircraft). Likes federal judge Will Klatt. found no evidence of past music festival planning.

    As acting Director of Communications, I wanted to provide my experience of producing national equestrian events , designer and celebrity, retail fashion – consumer facing events, as well as years of experience in both Indycar and GrandAm Motorsports hospitality providing upscale tailored events and service to both the VIP and sponsor relations.

    Greg Poppel ‘s role is an Overall Operations Manager with a sound engineer background – 35 years of experience and provides solid managerial support to the organization.

    In addition, we have an elite operations team with over 45 years of event production experience combined and we have partnered with Concessions by Cox to provide expertise on the overall layout and design of food and beverage.

    Leading our sponsorship team is HNS, who has a solid sales record, not to mention, Scott Stienecker acting as our primary talent buyer with a solid team in place supporting those efforts, we have also partnered with Columbus-based promoter, BravoArtist.

    Our efforts of PR, marketing and digital is being handled by local Columbus-based firm, Circone & Associates

    Some background on Scott http://614columbus.com/article/scott-stienecker-4069/

    In order for this to succeed they need to hit a homerun on the lineup. With several music festivals around the country they’ll need to be able to compete.
