Finding a Vendor:
Vendors are listed on our mobile site here, which also includes an interactive show map. However, contact information is only available for those vendors who provided it. It is difficult to find vendors after the show if you do not have their booth name or number. We highly recommend getting vendor business cards and/or info from any vendors you visit at the show and especially those you purchase from. If you’re looking for a vendor after the show, you can search the mobile site, sorting by category and using the interactive map to try to locate the vendor.
Becoming a Vendor:
You can find all the information about becoming a vendor, including fees and the online jury app, here. We are always accepting jury applications, but space in each show fills according to demand. Some popular categories, like jewelry and clothing, will fill faster than other categories. If you’d like to know whether or not there is still space available in your product category, contact the show office at (405) 632-2652 or email email@example.com.
