There is a limit to the number of vendors and table/room arrangements. We will do our best to assign tables and rooms so that there are no competitive vendors in each room of the mansion (for example: 3 caterers in one room).
Priority and room assignments will be granted on a first-come basis in the order in which the (1) agreement AND payment are received, and (2) with no two vendor types in same room.
Only one vendor type per exhibit space; no shairing of exhibit spaces with any other vendor.
All exhibitor fees are non-refundable, even if you cancel!
