TRYON, NC – February 12, 2018 – Vendor applications for the FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018 (WEG) on September 11-23 at Tryon International Equestrian Center is now open. More than 50,000-square-feet of vendor space are available inside the 100,000-square-foot enclosed Vendor Village. The vendor application will be available online at https://vendors.tryon2018.com.
The Vendor Village space rate is $6.50 per square foot per day. There will be a 10% Early Bird Discount for applications submitted with a valid credit card before February 28, 2018. Each returned application is subject to an approval process. Pricing for electrical options will be listed in the reservation application.
Space is available in single or multiple increments either nine or ten feet wide by ten feet deep. The formula for determining space cost is:
Width x Depth = Total Square Feet x $6.50/square foot/per day= Cost per Day x 13 Days = Space Cost for 13 Days.
A 50% deposit of the total cost is due upon approval. Deposit will be processed upon application approval.
The Vendor Village will be located between the two entry and exit points to the WEG venue, through which all attendees must enter and exit, thus ensuring high foot traffic for vendors. Additional outdoor bulk, display, and sponsorship space is also available. The vendor floor map is currently being finalized and will be available in the coming weeks.
Approved vendors will have access to a limited supply of onsite, vendor-only RV parking spaces with hook-ups on a first-come, first-served basis. Accepted vendors will also receive links to secure discounted housing or request room blocks.
