Info for VENDORS:
How much space will vendors have?
Each vendor will have a space of 8 feet (wide) by 9 feet (deep), with a foot of empty space on either side of you, making the entire space 10×9. There are tables available, but you are urged to bring your own table if you can, as there are only 24 tables available (no longer than 8 feet long).
Please let me know if you need a table. First come, first served.
You can reserve your expo space NOW. Click HERE to go to make your reservation! The expo tables will be $70 for an 8 foot table. There will be a maximum amount of tables allowed to be set up, so make sure you reserve your table today! Once they’re sold out, they’re sold out!
This is a great price for this event! Confirm today!
IF YOU DO RESERVE AN EXPO TABLE, this will also get you in to see the speakers, there will be no extra cost for that.
IF YOU DO NOT RESERVE AN EXPO TABLE, you can reserve a ticket to see our speakers and attend the expo event, you just will not be able to set up your inventory at the Tee Party.
