Hi there,

I'm running a site similar to yours at http://aas-stasjon.no/  
(Norwegian only) and was struggling with the same problem. Mark Naylor  
pointed me in the right direction in this post:


What I did was make an extra loop for my event category on top of the page:

<div id="next_event">
   <h2>Neste arrangement</h2>
   <?php query_posts('ec3_after=today&showposts=1'); ?>
   <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
     <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
       <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"  
title="Permanent lenke til <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title();  
       <div class="entry">
         <?php the_content('Les resten av dette innlegget &raquo;'); ?>
       <p class="right"><?php edit_post_link('Rediger'); ?></p>
       <h4>Sjekk kalenderen for andre arrangement!</h4>
     </div> <!-- end div "post" -->
   <?php endwhile; ?>
   <?php else : ?>
     <h4 class="center">Ingen kommende arrangement</h4>
     <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . "/searchform.php"); ?>
   <?php endif; ?>
</div> <!-- end div "next_event" -->

Just put your exhibit category where I have event and you should be  
moving in the right direction.

Regards, Alf
