Why are you not charging a vending fee for the event, but still requiring us to pay an admission fee?
In previous years when we organized events we did charge a fee to vend, but many where dissatisfied because the fee did not match their return. As such we chose to go a different route with vending. We chose to require vendors to donate at least one item from their merchandise to an event silent auction. That being said we are also requiring vendors to pay an admission fee to cover the cost of food and also accommodations. With this we are also giving vendors more freedom to close down during the event if the chose to attend a workshop or other activities at the event.
