AFO offers two types of booths, Regular and Corner. Booths are offered based on the following criteria (if approved)
1) Prior year vendors get first pick.
2) Everyone else will be based on their stated booth preference along with the date they submitted their application
Both corner and regular booths are 10' x 10'.
Corner booths come with 2 6' tables and 2 chairs. The price for a Corner Booth is $600.00 plus 6.5% state sales tax.
Regular booths come with 1 6' table and 2 chairs. The price for a Regular Booth is $450.00 plus 6.5% state sales tax.
Inventory for tables is limited and if you need to ensure that you have additional tables beyond your allotment you will need to purchase them separately.
Guaranteed electric outlets are available for an additional cost. There are outlets scattered throughout the Vendor Room, but if you require access to these we will place you at a booth location adjacent to one of these outlets.
2 vendor badges will be provided with each booth space. You may purchase additional badges at the discounted rate, up to a maximum of 2 beyond your allotment up to a total of 6 maximum. Anything beyond this will need special permission from the Vendor Coordinator - please contact the Vendor Coordinator through Eventeny or via email@example.com to make this ask.
Inquiry Form Process
We look forward to reviewing your inquiry form. To be considered for the AFO Vendor Room, we ask that you complete the Vendor Inquiry Form. Due to the high volume of inquiries, we cannot confirm receipt of, or guarantee an immediate response to your inquiry form. The submission process is electronic; therefore AFO is not responsible for technical issues that may cause your inquiry form to not be received. Multiple inquiry forms will not improve the chances of being accepted.
All fields must be completed and a link to your business/online store must be included in order for your inquiry form to be reviewed. If a field does not apply to you please indicate with “N/A”. Any missing information, lack of web links, and/or lack of display images may cause your application to be rejected. It is at the discretion of AFO to reject an inquiry form if a thorough review of your information cannot be completed. All inquiry forms will be reviewed in the order received. Any attempt to reapply will be reviewed in the normal order of receipt and will not be based on your original inquiry form submission date.
If approved and there is availability, you will receive an email from Eventeny and/or the firstname.lastname@example.org address. If there is no availability and/or your merchandise is not a good fit for AFO for this year, we will try to inform you as such. All information will be retained for potential future events. Booths will be considered reserved when your full payment is received.
Inquiry Form Review
The vendors' merchandise and information will be reviewed by AFO to establish if it follows the Vendor Room Terms and Conditions. All merchandise must adhere to the rules as mentioned above and in the contract. A vendor may be accepted, but required to remove certain items that do not fall within the rules.
The vendor must provide an example of the booth display and accompanying merchandise that they will be setting up in the Vendor Room. This will be used to assign booth placement if the vendor is accepted. If a vendor has set up in a Vendor Room before, a photograph will provide the simplest example. If the vendor is setting up a new display, or has not displayed in a Vendor Room before, a photo or drawing of the proposed display will suffice. The vendor may be asked for more detailed explanation or further proof.
