LAMP TRAVEL MAPS
HOT VISITOR SPOTS
We initially introduced the LAMP State and Country Travel Maps as
a platform to provide a quick reference for movie poster collectors
and dealers to use while traveling the U.S. and World. Over the past
two months, these individual map pages have quickly become some of
the most popular areas on the LAMP.
Due to this increased visitor interest, we are expanding the maps
in a number of ways.
INDIVIDUAL MAPS WILL BE EXPANDED
TO INCLUDE NEW INFORMATION
To reach out to movie buffs as well as
movie poster collectors, we will be adding more information that we
know will be of interest to movie lovers. In addition to the locations
of LAMP dealers, suppliers, service operations, etc., the following
information will be included on all of our LAMP Travel Maps:
Born in (individual state/country): A listing of
movie actors and actress born in that state/ country.
Movies Made (individual state/country): A listing
of the films shot in or partially shot in that state/country.
Trivia From (individual state/country): Movie or celebrity
trivia from that state/country.
What's in (individual state/country): Museums, exhibits
and other attractions of interest to movie fans.
Check out the new Texas
map -- the first online with these new changes. These changes will
be incorporated into all other state and country maps over the next

PROGRAM FOR LAMP-QUALIFIED DEALERS
This new Business Listing Program allows for LAMP-approved dealers
and suppliers to have their names listed on our LAMP Travel Maps. This
program was designed to allow reputable dealers with limited budgets
to let the thousands of collectors who visit LAMP each day know who
they are and where they are located.
For as little as $50.00 per year, reputable dealers, suppliers and
service companies can participate in LAMP as a LAMP approved dealer.
(LAMP Dealer requirements APPLY).
