2013 Basic Vendor Policy
For 2013, we will be offering vendor spaces and registration FREE of charge. However, anyone selling or bartering will be required to purchase general admission tickets and have their application approved.
Special Services for Vendors
While you can sell or barter for free, we will be offering vendors special services. These include:
- Banner Ad – a standard 468 x 60 pixel banner ad on our Bartertown vendor page. Whether you’re coming to Wasteland Weekend 2013 or not, you can grab one of these spots. This space is available from January 1st, 2013 until December 31st, 2013 and costs $40. Don’t wait! The sooner you get a banner, the sooner you can start reaching out and selling to our thousands of online followers!
- Facebook Weekly Post – get a ton of views of your Facebook page, website or Etsy page by having our staff post an official status update on our Wasteland Weekend wall and on other similar Facebook pages and groups. That’s one full year of super-effective social marketing aimed square at your target market! This service will be limited to only 5 vendors and will cost $100, which is a bargain for a year’s worth of having someone do your guerrilla marketing for you, and something that is bound to lead to sales.
- Wasteland Radio Ad – get a 30-second radio ad recorded for you for rotation on our very own radio station during the event: Wasteland Radio. Wasteland Radio will be back bigger than ever for 2013 and will also be playing from the stage during daylight hours. This will add cool factor to your presence at Wasteland Weekend! Since this is our first time publicly offering this service, we are offering a fully-produced ad for just $20.
If you are interested in any of these services, please contact Vendors(at)WastelandWeekend(dot)com.
Why an application?
We are requiring applications because it’s important to us to ensure that your products, services and booth are appropriate for our theme. Wasteland Weekend is all about participation, and vendors have the special privilege of providing a significant amount of Wasteland Weekend’s 360-degree post-apocalyptic atmosphere. Please be aware that we typically look for vendors who offer used or hand-crafted items. We will only make a few exceptions for vendors who wish to sell brand-new manufactured items.
