WHO SHOULD EXHIBIT and/or DISTRIBUTE A FLYER OR BROCHURE?
This event is designed to help area home schoolers find resources to prepare for the new school year. In particular, we'd love to see support groups, coops, sports teams, music programs, music teachers, field trips, scouts, dance schools, etc.
WHAT IS THE COST to exhibit or have my information distributed?
Our first goal is to serve as many home schoolers as possible so ADMISSION IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC. Our second goal is to keep the cost to exhibitors as reasonable as possible.
The cost to have a booth is $59 for "for-profit" vendors and just $39 per booth for "not-for-profit" organizations. Each booth will be approximately 8 ft wide by 6 feet deep and will include 1 six foot table and 2 chairs. The table will not be skirted. We will not be providing any signage so please consider a way to help attendees identify you. We have a limited number of booths so please sign up as early as possible.
The cost to distribute a flyer or brochure is $30. Whether you have a booth or not, you have the option to have your flyer or brochure distributed to each attending family in the attendee bag. You must bring 300 copies of your item to the assembly table outside the exhibit hall by 4pm on the day of the Expo.
How do I get the "Not-For-Profit" Rate?
If you are a not-for-profit organization AND cannot afford the regular $59 exhibitor rate, please click on the "Enter Promotional Code" link and enter "not-for-profit" as the code. Please remember that this event is also being put on by a non-profit organization and our target for this event is simpy to break even on our costs.
HOW IS PAYMENT BEING HANDLED THIS YEAR?
Payment this year is by CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD ONLY and through EVENTBRITE only. If you typically have your organization send a check or purchase order, please pay for the event yourself and have your organization reimburse you.
CAN I SELL AT THE EXPO?
Yes. But any sales tax reporting is your responsibility.
As always, OCHEC and EHE reserve the right to determine who will be allowed to exhibit and will make such decisions without comment.
If you have any questions, please use the "Contact the Organizer" link to the right.
