Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2018 Tampa Birth and Baby Expo, hosted by the Tampa Bay Birth Network. This year's expo will be held on Saturday, March 10th, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Corbett Preparatory School of IDS in Carrollwood. The school is located at 12015 Orange Grove Dr., Tampa, FL, 33618.

We are very happy to bring this event to Tampa again and look forward to seeing all of the amazing and creative displays that our vendors will bring this year! 

VENDOR GUIDELINES: 
Space is limited and once we have reached our full capacity registration will be closed. All vendors are required to be in alignment with the mission and principles of the Tampa Bay Birth Network, as laid out here:  Mission & Principles. Vendors are also required to be "Mother-Friendly." To view the Mother-Friendly guidelines, visit Coalition for Improving Maternity Services - Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative. We reserve the right to decline any applications that do not fall within these guidelines.  

Additionally we may have to decline vendors if we receive too many applications for one category (too many essential oils reps, photographers, etc.).

SET UP & PARKING: 
Set up time is Saturday, March 10th, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. Upon arrival, please check in to receive your table assignment. Parking for vendors is located across the street from the main front office building of the school, behind the middle school campus. The parking directly in front of the front office building (nearest to the event hall) is reserved for our attendees. There is also parking available at Carrollwood Elementary School, which is two blocks away. All vendors must finish unloading by 11:00 am and have their booths ready to go by 11:30 am. Please allow sufficient time for set up. 

HOURS: 
The expo hall will open to the public at 12:00 pm sharp and will close at 4:00 pm. All vendors must be completely broken down and the expo hall emptied by 5:00 pm. Vendors must leave their booth intact until 3:55pm. Breaking down your booth prior to 3:55 pm is strictly prohibited.

DISPLAY & VENDOR INFO: 
All displays should be contained within the assigned space. No display should obstruct the view of other exhibitors. The layout of the vendor hall is designed to accommodate a high volume of traffic. Please do not set up your display in the walkway, as this violates fire code and may cause bottlenecks and walk-through concerns in the exhibition hall. We greatly appreciate your cooperation with this request. 

Electricity and WIFI: This year we have made it available as an add-on to your vendor application (click here). You must provide your own extension cords. 

If you must cancel your participation in the Tampa Birth & Baby Expo, please notify us immediately. There are no refunds. 

All vendors will be listed on the Expo Vendor Page on the Tampa Bay Birth Network website, complete with a link to your business web page and all vendors will receive social media shout outs.

RAFFLE: 
All vendors are asked to donate an item to the raffle ($25 value or more). Bring your raffle item on the day of the Expo and deliver it to the Raffle Table. If you would like social media promotion of your raffle item ahead of time, please send images and information about your item to Beth Creasey, our Expo Manager, at beth@tampabaybirthnetwork.org. 

GOODY BAGS: 
Vendors may submit 200 items (business cards, coupons, or product samples) to the attendee giveaway bags. One business represented per item. Your items must be mailed or hand delivered by Friday, March 2nd, 5:00 pm, to the following address: Crunch Natural Parenting, 1599 Main Street, Dunedin, FL, 34698.
