We have a lot to tell you so please read all of this thoroughly (now would be a good time to grab a beer or make yourself a cup of tea before you settle in!). I will create a vendor group on FB for this event and will use this as the main means of communication for this event…I will also try and remember to send the same info via email because I realize fb is slowly losing it’s force….
There are several deadlines to note in this email.
Booth Fees- Booth fees are $150 for a 6dx8w space …please mail this with your signed vendor contract by October 15 to:
601 N. Palmers Chapel
White House, TN 37188
Refunds- Because there is such a short amount of time until the event, there will be NO REFUNDS so please make sure you are committed when mailing in your booth fee+vendor contract..
Booth Neighbors- If there is another vendor you would like to have your booth next to please let us know. We cannot make any promises, but we will try our best to put you next to your friends. We understand events like these are really hard work and it is much more fun when your peeps are nearby. Please email these requests to firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 1.
Swag- We are handing out cotton swag bags printed by our friends at Championship Trophies (Lafayette, TN) to all the guest who purchase advanced tickets. As a vendor, we want you to send items to go in the bags. This is a great way to get your name out there and for attendees to remember you long after the show is over. Items should promote your business...flyers, business cards, book marks, 1” buttons, stickers, etc….get creative! The more interesting, the more likely our attendees will remember you and your wares. We ask for 200 items but we also know this is a large number for some people so send what you can. Keep in mind you can also send a mixture of items (ex: 10 super awesome somethings and 40 business cards).
Swag must be received by November 10th.
Mail swag to:
601 N. Palmers Chapel
White House, TN 37188
If you are local and would like to drop your swag off, please contact tracy at 429.0405…

Send information to your mailing list, invite all your friends, ask your mom to tell her friends, post about it on your blog, Tweet about it, post about it on Facebook and Flickr! Any way you can think of, get the word out. We’ve attached web badges and postcards for posting. Please send me your mailing address and i will mail printed postcards for you to distribute…If you blog tweet or fb about the event at least 10 times, you will be entered to win back your booth fee…
