Would you like to submit a vendor/exhibitor proposal as part of your sponsorship package? Products/services/information must align with our mission and the nature of the event. *
Booths are approximately 8’ x 8’. One table per booth will be provided if indicated on your form. Electricity is available for an additional $5 on a limited basis and must be requested in advance. Set-up times will be from 5PM-7PM on Friday, and 7AM-8AM on Saturday. In response to the positive feedback we received, we will be keeping the schedule we initiated last year to allow more time for participants to visit the vendor/exhibitor area throughout the day. Your booth needs to be set up and managed from 8:00AM to 3:45PM. The vendor area will close to shoppers at 5:00PM and must be emptied by 6:00PM. Vendors/Exhibitors may purchase a lunch for $9 (advanced registration for lunch is required). Vendors/Exhibitors may attend workshops for a fee of $6 per single session or $12 per double session, if someone else can manage your booth (registration at morning check-in or before is required). We are once again offering an incentive for participants to visit vendor booths. If you would like to offer a door prize, we will place a bucket at your booth where attendees can drop in a ticket with their name pre-printed on it. Staff will come around at 3:30PM  to have you draw a winning ticket and collect the prizes. Winners will be posted on the stage in the commons area. As always, the public is welcome to enter the vendor/exhibitor area at no charge.
Cancellation Policy: Vendors/Exhibitors who are unable to attend the event should contact event staff at Cancellations received by noon on Monday, January 8, 2018 will receive a refund minus a $5 processing fee. No refunds will be issued after 12:00 PM on January 8.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to celebrating our 12th annual Back to Basics with you!
