Invitation to Potenital Vendors:
The Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild (OVWG) is offering the opportunity for vendors to be considered to sell their woodturning products at our “Turning 2019 Woodturning Symposium”. The, October 17-20, 2019 symposium will be held at Higher Ground Conference and Retreat Center, located in Southeastern Indiana, a 30 minute drive from Cincinnati. We expect another well attended event with more than 250 attendees expected each day.
We will have 5 talented Featured Professional Demonstrators and other regional and nationally recognized Guest Demonstrators, offering a wide range of project and tool demonstrations.
The professional demonstrators were carefully selected to exhibit a wide range of woodturning projects, use of various tools, finishes, jigs, and specialty products. You are welcome to contact the scheduled pro turners regarding use of your products during any of their scheduled demonstrations. They are listed on the main symposium page.
A total of 27 vendor booths (standard size: 10' x 10') will be available. The fee for one booth is $250. Additional 10' x 10' spaces are $150 each.
If you are selected, we will request that you donate a woodturning tool(s) or similar product(s) with a retail value equal to your total booth rental fee for our Auction. On receipt of the product donation, your booth reservation fee will be refunded to you. Your product donation will be displayed with advertising throughout the symposium at the main entrance to the demonstration area, and will be auctioned on Saturday. Proceeds from the auction support OVWG activities throughout the year including our very popular youth and outreach educational programs.
Our demonstration schedule will include several breaks throughout each day intended to increase vendor area traffic. Every effort will be made by demonstrators and OVWG volunteers to promote all vendors in attendance. You will be encouraged to open your booth at 7:30 am each day, prior to the initial round of demonstrations starting at 8:00 am. You may wish to focus sales efforts during the breaks between rotations and for meals. Special promotions, coupons, etc. are encouraged. Let us know how we can support your sales efforts.
If you are interested in being considered as a vendor for our event, contact Jack Gormley, 1278 Dillon Ave, Cincinnati OH 45208 by March 31, 2017, phone: 513-678-4518, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are accepted to be a Turning 2019 vendor Jack will provide registration process details. Confirmation of reservation will be sent no later than 2 weeks after receipt of your booth fee. One month before the symposium you will receive details on the booth setup process and timing, offload support, etc..
Vendors are responsible for their own transportation, lodging costs and any meals you wish to have at the on-site dining facility. Entry to the symposium is included with vendor registration.
