We look forward to having you participate as a vendor for our Business Showcase at the upcoming Tapestry Network event.
Below is information specifically for Vendors:
Arrival and Set Up
Display tables need to be set-up no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the event. It is very awkward to have vendors trying to get in and set up while women are already arriving at the event. Additionally, if you are still setting up your table as the
women are browsing the tables, you will miss the valuable opportunity to visit with them. You may arrive one hour before the event start time to begin setting up your table. Tables are not assigned, but are on a first-come/first-serve basis. Each display sponsor is provided with an 8-foot table (skirting and table covering is included at the morning event but not at the evening event). Feel free to park right out front of the entrance as you unload, then move your car to the parking lot.
Display Sponsor Introductions
We want to highlight you and introduce you to the entire room of women. At some point early on in the event, I will ask the vendors to the front of the room. Please be prepared to do a 30-second introduction of your business and what you have displayed or have to offer at your table. It's important that you plan what you want to share because, in order to keep the event running on time, you will truly only have 30-seconds.
Support Local Non-Profit
This is yet another way to further promote your business. Please contact me if you have any questions or to alert me if you will be donating a gift. If you are donating a gift for the drawing - when you arrive, please leave your gift at the registration table.
Make your table display as attractive and enticing as possible
You want the women to have a reason to visit your table and spend time talking with you, so make your display fun and inviting. I encourage you to prepare a method of collecting cards/names so you can follow-up after the event with all you meet. If you are doing a drawing and giving away something, you will need to contact the winner on your own. If you have any questions – please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at the Tapestry Gathering!
