Going to Argilla exhibition. How to get there?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

My mom is making porcelain dishes and jewelry. She was invited to Italy to the exhibition named Argilla. We live in Finland and it makes some troubles to get to the place.

I would like to ask for an advice: how it would be easier to deliver to Italy all the items she wants? Is it realistic to take them to a plane as hand baggage or mark it as "fragile" and leave at baggage drop and get them in the same condition after a flight :D?

I am looking for the cheapest and easiest way to deliver all the stuff but if it will become really expensive, in this case we will probably have to get there by car and take everything with us. It isn't the best way, because the trip is 3000km one way + accomondation costs. The exhibition is 30 Aug - 2 Sept.

I would also like to hear from any experienced exhibitors about traveling with pottery, sending it etc...

Thank you all in advance!

Hello - I suppose much depends on the volume and weight of your mom's exhibition pieces. I'm not sure I'd ever give anything fragile to an airline and expect it to arrive in one piece, so you may just end up driving!

If the event is this - Argilla - then it looks like Finland were the guest country in 2012. There's an exhibitor list (PDF) available - perhaps you could contact one or more of those who took part then, and ask how they did it? There seem to have been about 16 from Finland (see page 7 of the exhibitor list).

Looks like a great opportunity, though. Hope it works out!
