All vendor/booth spaces will be located on asphalt. NO penetrations of any kind into the asphalt are permitted for any reason! Vendors who penetrate the asphalt will be asked to leave the premises immediately and assessed a $200 repair fee.
The resort will provide sand bags for securing any tents or covers. If you choose to bring your own weights, please ensure they do not damage the asphalt in any way.
The standard booth/space is 10’ X 10’. Additional space may be acquired for a fee per 10’ X 10’ booth/space.
Two basic 110V electrical plug-in outlets will be provided per 10 X 10 booth/space. The distance to the power connection may be up to 50’ and each vendor is required to provide their own extension cords and safety covers ensuring that no loose cords or cables are located on any walking surfaces.
Setup will be on Wednesday, November 14. Hours for setup are from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Setup must be completed by Wednesday, November 14 at 5 p.m.
While the resort does provide 24 hour security, there is no way to completely deter theft from occurring; therefore, the resort is not responsible for any contents within the space being occupied by any vendor. You must secure your valuables at your own risk.
The resort will NOT receive any shipments of any kind beyond a standard overnight “sized” FedEx or UPS box. All items needed for a vendor to set up or to sell at the event must be transported onto the property by the vendor.
NO vehicles of any kind (unless part of the designated and occupied booth space and pre-approved) will be permitted to park anywhere on the resort property. Once you have unloaded your contents for setup, all vehicles must be relocated to an off-site parking facility at vendor’s expense. On-site security can direct you to possible nearby locations (depending on availability). No security will be provided at any satellite parking lot and it will be up to each vendor to secure their respective vendor or contents.
The parking lot for which all vendor booth/spaces will be located is lit with overhead standard halogen street lights. However, it is up to each vendor to safely provide their own lighting for their designated space. Over the dates of the event, it does get dark just shortly after 5:00 pm daily, 2 hours prior to the mandatory operational ending time of 7:00 pm.
All bagged trash and broken down cardboard boxes must be taken to the designated trash dumpster.
The resort does not provide trash receptacles for the booth/spaces.
No vendor may assign, sublet or apportion all or any part of the privileges of the space assigned to them, nor permit any other party to exhibit herein, other than the business to which the space is assigned and insured.
Vendors are expected to remain open during official event hours Thursday noon – 6 p.m. Friday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
If you hire an outside tent company to set up your tent, they must contact the resort’s Engineering Department (727-363-2337) in advance for setup and breakdown instructions.
