What if I'm interested in hosting a workshop at the event?
If you're interested in hosting a workshop at the event, you can contact us with your workshop idea at email@example.com. Be sure to include what the workshop will entail, how many people you can accommodate, what materials you will be using, etc. Also include what you plan on charging for the workshop (presale and day of). Vendor fee for workshops is $40, and 25% of all presale tickets sold through our website.
How big is the booth space and what does it include?
Each vendor (except for the workshop vendor) will have a 6x6 booth space and are required to supply their own tables, chairs, extra lighting, and extension cords if needed. Please let us know if you need an outlet. Wall space is not likely as we cannot damage the hotel walls. We do suggest an extra light and battery operated, if possible.
