Vending applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Vendor locations will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis based on the date we receive payment. There are a limited number of expo spaces so we recommend that you apply for your spot promptly. The venue is set-up such that all locations are desirable and have equal visibility and traffic.
