Due to the unexpected need of for more vendors, the 2017 Vending Application has been reopened!
We will be reviewing all applications for the 22 vending spaces available based on the best matches for this event and its geeky, kinky appeal!
Due to limited space in our venues, we cannot push this number. Almost all vending will be room vending with a few spaces for tables. There will be NO large booths available, so as to conserve our limited space for our dungeon, demonstrations, and other programming.
We greatly appreciate our past vendors. Having a positive history with us will weigh very favorably toward receiving an invitation to return. However, vending at GKE or GKE: New England in the past does not guarantee acceptance for 2017 events, as we test the waters of the GKE experiences and modify our offerings in programming, vendors, performers and more each year.
Room Vending fee – $405
Table Vending fee (very limited table space) – $295
We will be closing the application on April 16, 2017. Applications received after April 16 will be automatically waitlisted.
We will notify all applying vendors of their status by April 30, 2017–if we have accepted the application, wait listed the application, or declined the application. Wait listed vendors will be contacted in case of a vendor cancellation no later than August 1, 2017.
Payment will be due within 2 weeks of receipt of invoice for accepted vendors. If a vendor has not made payment (or made arrangements for delayed payment – payment arrangements require a 50% non-refundable deposit due by the original invoice due date) within 2 weeks of invoice date, their space will open up to other applicants and the original vendor will be placed on the Wait List.
Thank you! We look forward to the opportunity to work with you at this year’s GKENE!
