Vendor Requirements

Our core Family of Vendors enjoys low rental rates and reaps the benefits of heavily attended events.
We believe our shows are profitable for a vast majority of our vendors because we spend lots of money on advertising, keep our expenses down, and  work together with our vendors as a unified force.
Our core Family of Vendors all join us in keeping the environment clean during and after each event, keeping each other and the public safe by properly weighting our tent legs, and in presenting booth displays that are esthetically pleasing.
All vendors are expected to be aware of and comply with all Vendor Requirements.
All vendors are required to keep their rental space and their immediate surrounding area free and clear of all litter throughout AND at the end of the selling day, including debris that is not their own. Please let management know if another vendor is being abusive and littering the area and we will deal with them without them knowing who told us.
The size of a space at every outdoor show ranges from 10'x10' to 13' wide x 12' or more deep.
Please do not set up on your own.
Please familiarize yourself and your employees with all of the following Vendor Requirements.
Your employees are responsible for complying with all Vendor Requirements in your absence.
We do not require vendors to set up a canopy in their space.
Vendors must bring their own chairs, tables, and canopies.
Electric power is generally not provided to vendors.
Vendors are welcome to use quiet generators that do not disturb their neighboring vendors.
Any and all  tables you bring must be covered with a quality material any color that reaches the floor on all four sides.
While supplies last at each of our shows, tablecloths are sold by Show Management for $20 each. 
The tablecloths we sell are trade show quality and are machine washable.
First-time vendors at one of our events may use non-complying table covers providing they are reasonably attractive.
Table covers made of bedsheets or plastic or bare tables are strictly prohibited at all times.
You are welcome but not required to set up a 10'x10' canopy in your space.
When selling outdoors, wind is a factor that must be taken into consideration. 
For public safety, in order to protect you and everyone around you, on windy days your canopy must have a minimum of 18 pounds of weight on each leg.
A canopy that is not properly weighted on a windy day can become an unguided missile that can severely damage others and their property.
The Palm Springs 4 Pack is the most cost efficient and effective product we have found to sufficiently anchor the four legs of your canopy on grassy or hard services.
To purchase it for about $40 online log onto or and go to Canopy Weights.
At some of our Events, including all of our Boardwalk Fairs, rope and bungee cords may be used to anchor the tents to railings.

Show Management is always on hand to check you in.
If anything occurs that I don't like or understand, please do notget into a confrontation or argument with anyone. Simply let management or security know about the problem.
