Since this is an opportunity for you to market your business, I hope that you will take the time to review the material I have created to help you have a powerful experience for your business at this event.
Please read the Vendor Guidelines to know how to be prepared,
and what to expect.
1) Arrival - The marketing vendor tables must be set up by 11:00am. You may begin your set-up as early as 10am and you must be finished by 11 am. This will allow you plenty of time to set-up, bring in your materials and have a chance to catch your breath before our guests arrive and we begin the open networking segment of our event at 11am. Future reservations for a table will hinge on your timely arrival and set-up. Please do NOT set-up prior to 10am without permission as we will need to first make sure the room is set-up to accommodate the group we are expecting. We encourage our vendors to bring their own tableclothes as the 4 foot table you will be provided with is not covered or draped.2) Departure - Plan to STAY at least 30-minutes following the event. We have found The BEST NETWORKING is done after events. Remember this is AFTER attendees have had the opportunity to hear about your business and passion for what you do, learn about your giveaway and will be more likely to stop by your booth. 3) Assistance - Make sure to ask for help if you need it. If something is too heavy or you need a hand moving something, please ask for assistance, especially if you're early.4) Highlight - All vendors receive 'Highlight Time' in front of the entire audience. This will be in the form of a longer commercial to be presented to all attendees. Vendors are allowed a 90 second commercial while attendees are allowed a 45 - 60 second commercial depending on the number of attendees.5) Door prize items - For added visibility we offer all vendors the opportunity to donate a raffle item, and receive an additional 30 seconds to market your business &/or highlight a product. Your generous minimum $25 value donation will be offered to attendees each time they purchase a $10 raffle ticket to support our Clothes For Kids underwear & sock drive. This opportunity is optional. If you choose to participate, we recommend that you have something 'applicable' to your business as a raffle item, preferably something 'tangible' or at least a finished product or quality consultation (i.e. try not to give away a $5-10 coffee gift card. This may sound like a nice, generous gift, however, our goal is for the lucky winner to EXPERIENCE your product or service). Please give Kathleen Bolomey our Vendor coordinator your raffle item once you have set up your vendor table, and before our event begins at 11:30am.
* In agreeing to serve as a Vendor for our Exceptional Connections event, you are committing to be responsible for the Marketing table fee even if you need to cancel due to illness or a schedule conflict the day of our event. Please understand that in reserving this spot for you another vendor was turned away, and this impacts the flow of our meeting. All registration fees are non-refundable.
AND Finally,Our Goal for our Vendors
- Share your BRAND of business with new people that have a need and budget for your product or service,
or who can refer you to their network.
- Gain some QUALITY attention in front of a motivated audience- Connect you with people that are well connected and know others in need of your product or service- We want all vendors to feel like they receive added value at every eventThank you in advance for taking the time to read this e-mail all the way to the end, adhere to the guidelines, bring a raffle item, and pre-register for your networking and vendor opportunity, or pay your fees at the door the day of the event after setting up your booth.
We are thrilled to offer you extra visibility to showcase your business and YOU!
