SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3RD
THE PARK EXPO & CONFERENCE CENTER
VENDOR BADGES - Due to ongoing theft, your peel and stick Vendor Badges will no longer be in an envelope taped to the floor of the booth. They will now be picked up at the red table next to the ThriftCon Merch Station between 7:00am and 8:30am on event day.
VENDOR PACKETS - A more detailed Vendor Packet with booth assignments, Show Guide and load-in instructions will be sent to your registered email and texted to your phone # on file at least one week prior to event day.
LOAD-IN/LOAD OUT - Anyone not part of the Saturday load-in group (Patreon subscribers and sponsors only) will have assigned time slots to load in on Sunday morning.
TABLES/CHAIRS/EXTRA BADGES - You may order extra tables, chairs and Vendor Badges at any time — up to a few days before event day. Simply reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what'cha need!
CUSTOM VENDOR FLYERS - We will be sending you personalized marketing material for social media. Hold tight, they'll be in your texts/emails the week of November 13th or earlier. If you'd like to start promoting immediately, click the "IG SIZED FLYER" link above!
COMMUNICATION - We will be sending out a lot of information about the event over the next several weeks to your registered text and email. Please make sure both your carrier settings and email inbox is set up to receive those.
Send any and all inquiries to email@example.com
We cannot promise that any other form of communication, like Instagram DMs, will be responded to.
LOSS PREVENTION - We know, we hate it too. However, ThriftCon and venue security is not responsible for missing or stolen items from your booth. We do everything we can behind the scenes to ensure that it doesn't happen, but this is also a fast-paced retail environment with retail problems. Please keep yourself and your team up to date on successful customer service techniques to deter shoplifters in your booth and always, always USE YOUR VENDOR PASSES TO HIRE EXTRA HELP.
SOUND - Personal speakers or other amplified sound is not allowed at individual booths. The attendees hate competing soundtracks. Sorry.
SPACE - Only bring what will fit into your allotted space. Inventory in the aisles is not allowed per fire regulations and will get your booth shut down and banned from future events. This includes, but isn't limited to: clearance piles, racks, displays, tables, chairs and/or hanger sorters.
TENTS/CANOPIES - E-Z Ups or other types of pop up tents are allowed, but the canopy cover is not. That means if you plan to use a tent, you can only use the frame, no covering. This is a fire regulation and out of our control unfortunately :(
FOOD & DRINK - Concessions will be available at the venue. Though we strongly suggest you pack something on your own as large crowds often make it difficult to dip out and wait in long food/drink lines.
Per venue contracts, no food or drink can be sold at Vendor booths. This includes exotic snacks. No outside alcohol. Ever. Never.
REFUNDS - Booth fees for ThriftCon Charlotte are non-refundable after November 19th, 2023. If you cannot vend at the event please reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to let us know.
PARKING - We still don't have exact parking instructions from the venue (mainly where to park once loading in is complete). But expect a $10 per parking spot charge on event day. When we know more about oversize vehicles, trailers and Vendor Parking location we will communicate that via text or email.
WI-FI - Connecting to the venue's Wi-Fi is available, but it isn't free. Click here for the order form and be sure to get it in to email@example.com at least 10 days before the event for the early bird hookup.
(P.S. We have no idea how good or bad your personal device's service is going to be at The Park Expo & Conference Center.)
ELECTRICAL - Electrical hookup at The Park Expo & Conference Center is available, but also isn't free. If you'd like to order a dropped outlet at your booth, you must fill out this form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's smart to hit this at least 10 days from event day too, as you'll be charged the "At Show" rate if you don't.
THRIFTCON SECURITY - There will be several security personnel, including uniformed police officers, on the event floor to ensure the safety of ThriftCon guests. They are not there to protect your inventory from shoplifters. Again, any extra Vendor Passes should be used to hire extra hands internally to help with any personal booth measures.
*If you would like to hire your own uniformed security for your booth you may do so. Contact email@example.com for a list of approved venue security companies.
