Q: How is my booth location determined?

A: Your vending site location is determined by several factors including your booth size, type of products being offered, previous attendance, whether you use an RV on your vending site and which side of the RV you set up on, your registration date as well as your arrival date and time. 

While we will make every effort to place returning vendors as close to their desired previous location as possible, a specific row or location can not be guaranteed. We always reserve the right to place vendors in a designated location that best reflects the above criteria.

A: Vending booths are set up in rows. All spaces are 20ft deep. 

 

 Example: If you use a  10X10 space you will have 10ft of exposure to the public. A 20X20 space offers 20ft of exposure. Booths are set up back to back with a customer walking isle in front of each booth extending the length of each vending row.
