Vendors are allowed 1-2 representatives per space. Vendor space must be neat and clean at all times and trash properly contained at the end of the event. Vendors agree to stay entire time of event. Due to length of the day, early breakdown is prohibited for this event. Breakdown will begin as soon as we close the expo at 2:00 pm. Every vendor is asked to have a door prize for raffle throughout the day. That will be collected before the beginning of the event.
Cancellation: We reserve the right to cancel the event if deemed necessary and in this case, we will refund any money paid for the space rental. Also in the event that any outside cause such as war, fire, strike or other emergency prevents the event to occur, we will refund any money paid for, or vendor has the option to participate in rescheduled event. If vendor decides to cancel, a written document is required and should be submitted to Leya Elijah-Eller. However, no money will be refunded.

*Note: Due to the increase of many jewelry and fashion businesses, we will only select three jewelry vendors and three fashion vendors. This comes on a first come first secure basis. We do not hold spaces. This gives the audience the opportunity to have a good amount of selections and gives vendors a great opportunity to make their revenue.
Attendees attending our show are a must to having a successful show. We all know it takes a village to raise a vision. I am asking that each vendor post the flyer on their website, social media pages and share with all that you come in contact with to assist in the success of our show
Booth/Vendor Table Designing It is extremely important that you pre-design you booth before it is time to set it up on the day of the event. The following are some designing tips: * You have to decide on the central theme of your booth/table; what you want to place emphasis on before you can start designing your booth. * Consider using props like boxes, easels, folding screens etc. Fresh flowers and pictures can add color and make your booth inviting. * Remember that how your space looks and the quality of the material you display tells your prospective customer what kind of business person you are; so make sure that you are sending a positive message with your booth/table. * Plan and determine how you will get business leads from the event. You may ask attendees to sign up for your mailing list for promotions or newsletters, or ask them to enter a drawing for a prize which promotes your business. * Giveaway items must be decided on in advance. You should have some sort of marketing material available for all attendees. * It is a good idea to have special items available for those attendees who seem genuinely interested in your products and or services. * Do not forget supplies such as packaging materials, tape, scissors, pens, staples, etc., and personal items such as snacks and water. * Pack a large supply of business cards. * You are responsible for your own tablecloth. * Please be mindful of excessive cell phone/texting usage. Feedback from previous events has been that some vendors have been so engaged in their phones they drove potential customers away. I want you to succeed, not lose money or potential contacts.
