EXPO INFORMATION FOR EXHIBITORS
Date: Monday, July 29th
Vendor Setup: 3:00pm-5:00pm
Open to Public: 6:00pm-9:00pm
Location: University of Central Oklahoma, Nigh University Center
Expected attendance: Several hundred homeschool families (admission is FREE).
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 $49 for "for-profit" vendors and just $29 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. If you want to be included in the program (which is designed for the attendees to keep all year) you must be registered by July 9th.
The cost to distribute a flyer or brochure is $20. 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 $49 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?
One of the reasons we changed venues last year was to allow you to sell your products or to take orders or sign people up for your services if that helps you.
As always, OCHEC and EHE reserve the right to determine who will be allowed to exhibit and will make such decisions without comment.
YOU MUST REGISTER BY JULY 9TH IF YOU WISH TO BE INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM!!!
