(Vendors) iConnection Yacht Cruise 2017
The Iconnection and Spa Connection Vendor Instructions and Guidelines June 29th, 2017 Vendor fee structure, options and requirements: Vendor Showcase/networking- $1,000 per table. Platinum sponsor opportunity–$3,500 per sponsor (this fee includes the table $1,000 fee). Total including table-$3,500. This opportunity allows 1 vendor to greet all attendees personally with a Champagne toast. Step and repeat opportunity at check-in, on-mic announcement and the opportunity to personally hand out the SWAG bags upon de-boarding. . -Swag Bags- Vendors (product vendors not service related vendors) are required to provide sample products to be added to the “Swag Bag” which will be distributed to our attendees. Swag items should be actual products opposed to collateral or paper advertisement. -Raffle Opportunity- All Vendors are expected to participate in the Raffle opportunity. It not only gives the Vendor additional recognition, it is also the Grand Finale of the evening. The Raffle prizes should be brought to the event and kept at your table. One of your business cards (with your prize written on the back of your card) will be collected the day of the event. When your raffle prize is announced, the winner will collect the prize from you at your table. -Boarding the yacht and Set-Up/Time- Only one vendor representative will be allowed aboard per vendor/company due to the occupancy requirement (Two representatives for Platinum Sponsors). Vendors must be completely set up at the event space between 3:30-4:15pm. Since we will be limited by space we are asking all vendors to bring their display and products within bags that can be easily stored opposed to cardboard boxes. If you need to bring your items in boxes, the boxes will need to be removed from the yacht prior to the attendees boarding at 4:45. The Yacht will return at approximately 8pm at which time all vendors will begin break-down. -Dress Attire- "Top Gun" Aviator theme. -Table assignment- Tables will be assigned by the event organizers only. Shifting tables after arrival by the Vendor will be prohibited without authorization. The Table size will be approximately 3’X4”. If a display will take the place of the table please request the table removal two weeks prior to the event date. -Passports for Attendees- All attendees will receive a passport listing all of the participating Vendors. The attendees will be encouraged to meet with as many Vendors as possible at the Vendor Showcase. The Vendor will be responsible to sign off on the attendee’s passport upon meeting. This passport will allow the attendee to participate in the raffle opportunities. -Leads and e-mail Collection of Attendees- A list of our associate’s/attendee’s contacts will NOT be disseminated by “The Spa Connection”. The passport method will help drive the attendee to the Vendor. It will be entirely up to the Vendor and their talents to get the contact information and follow up with that lead and close the deal. Be creative and make contacts. - Location- The High Spirits is located at The Hornblower Cruises and Events center located at---. 1800 North Harbor Drive San Diego, Ca. 92101 -Event Timeline- (Timelines may change.
