Vendor Registration for January 28th 2018 Bridal Show @ NOVA 535
Frequently Asked Questions: What are your booth rates and options? Standard Booths start at under $250. This includes approximately 65 square feet of space (roughly 8ft x 8ft, room for a banquet table, two chairs, and standing room). Space allocation may vary depending on the venue. We do try to allow extra space for caterers and photo booths. At some venues, we may offer Premium Booths with approximately 120 square feet of space (roughly 10ft x 12ft or 8ft x 15ft). If available, this will be an upgrade option when you check out. Depending on the venue, tables, chairs, and table linens may be at an additional cost. If so, these will be clearly identified as options when you check out. How do I register? Registration is 100% online, via EventBrite (select the appropriate category above and click the green "register" button to proceed to checkout), and we accept all major credit cards. We prefer that you use a credit card for payment so your booth space is reserved immediately upon checkout. Please contact us if you need to make special arrangements for payment, such as a corporate check. How many brides/guests attend your shows? Typically around 200-400 total guests. About half are usually brides and grooms, and half are other guests (parents, bridal party, etc.). Do you charge brides to attend the show? No - we ask that they pre-register (so we have good contact info and other lead-related data), but the tickets are free for brides, grooms, and their guests. How do you advertise the show? We have developed a great "secret formula" using social media, email marketing, and local promoters to help us get the word out about our shows. Most of our brides are from Pinellas County and are planning a wedding in the next 6-18 months. Do you limit the number of vendors at the show? Yes - we are limited to a maximum total number of vendors (depending on the show venue, normally 30-40), and we also limit the number of vendors in each category (typically 3-5 vendors from each category - i.e. 5 photographers, 3 wedding planners, etc.). The registration page will show the number of booth registrations remaining for each category. As the show date gets closer, we do have some flexibility and will occassionally add an extra booth to a particular category, so check with us if your category is sold out and we may be able to accomodate you. Note that some categories (such as Mary Kay, It Works, and 31 Gifts) are limited to one vendor per show. These booth spaces always sell out very early. What other wedding vendors are attending? If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page, you will see a list of all vendors who have registered so far. Please note that the list of registered vendors will change often, especially as the date of the show nears. When do we set up for the show? Doors typically open for vendors 3-4 hours before the show. It is imperative that you arrive early to set up. Booth locations are issued on a first come, first serve basis (so if you are the last vendor to arrive, you'll get the last available space...that no one else wanted!). Even if you only think it will take you a few minutes to setup, please keep in mind there will be 30 to 40 other vendors trying to park, unload, and setup at the same time as you, and setup must be complete 30 minutes before the show starts. We recommend you arrive early, setup, then relax and go grab some coffee or brunch and come back for the show ready to knock em dead! Will we have pipe & drape surrounding our booth? We keep our costs low by using as few rental items as possible, so in most cases your booth will either have the wall, or pipe and drape, behind it. There will not be pipe and drape between each booth. A typical floor plan is something like this: What happens during the show? Is there a set timeline or a fashion show? Our shows use a trade show or expo format - There is no set timeline of events for the brides, and no fashion show or anything else to
