A packet of beautiful advertising materials, including flyers, posters, and social media graphics, will be distributed to all vendors ahead of the Show. These materials are designed to promote the event and attract more visitors to your booth. Along with the advertising materials, you will also receive 20 complimentary tickets to give out, which can help you attract potential customers.

Each vendor is required to pay an early tear-down deposit of $50. The deposit will be refunded if you remain set up from the beginning to the end of the Show. However, you must be present to receive the deposit refund. We will not send out the rebate after the Show. You will forfeit the refund if you fail to show up or set up for the Show.

CODE OF CONDUCT: It is essential to maintain professionalism and respect at all times during the event. This includes treating all event staff, fellow vendors, and visitors with courtesy and respect, keeping your booth tidy and organized, and following all event rules and regulations. It is crucial to show proper respect to all individuals to avoid being asked to leave the event without a refund and not be invited back.

Setup will begin at 7:00 am on Friday morning, and time slots for unloading will be assigned. Doors will open for vendors at 8:00 am on Saturday. You are responsible for your own setup and tear-down. Please ensure that you set up your booth in a professional and presentable manner. It is highly recommended that vendors bring wheeled carts to facilitate the transportation of their items. Please note that the GSR will NOT be providing any carts.

Now, let's talk about the exciting features of our event:

The first 100 individuals who purchase tickets will be given a lovely swag bag filled with goodies from our vendors. Vendors are welcome to contribute to this bag by providing a sample or any other promotional item; we will require 100 pieces.

We will be holding multiple raffles during the event. Vendors are encouraged to contribute items for the prizes.

We are pleased to announce that we have organized a Vendor Scavenger Hunt during the event. Each attendee will receive a punch card, which the pre-selected vendors must punch. After collecting all the punches, they can enter to win the grand prize. This is an excellent opportunity for vendors to attract customers to their booths and increase sales. The participation fee for this game is $20. There are only 16 spots available. 

We will have a lounge area. This lounge area is an excellent spot for shoppers to rest and relax before continuing their shopping and for vendors to take a refreshing break.

A People's Choice Award for Favorite Vendor will be given out at the end of the Show. This award is a great way to gain recognition for your booth and products. So make your booth inviting and your smile bright to win the favor of our guests! The winner will receive a special prize and recognition on our website and social media platforms.
