Event/Application Rules & Regulations
1. Is it handcrafted? Hand crafted items will be placed near the front of the show.
2. The look of your booth. Presentation is so important for customers entering show.
3. Will it draw crowds? Demonstration booths are placed so as to not obstruct traffic flow.
4. Limited duplication. I try hard to not place you next to similar items.
5. Your Booth is to remain open during the entire show (all hours). It seems that Sunday brings eager
exhibitors ready to pack up early and leave. If you do this, you will forfeit any deposit paid and not be
asked to come back.
6. Parking. We will have an area for you to park trailers and your vehicles. You will be given a pass to
be displayed in the window of your vehicle.
7. Your prices need to remain the same throughout the show. When you change prices because things are not selling, it just tells the customers to wait until Sunday to shop. Random checks will be made during the show to make sure this is policy adhered to. Failure to comply may result in
being asked to remove items from your table immediately.
8. Tables need to be covered to the ground. Booths should be neat and have a Christmasy look.
9. Items not listed in your application will have to be removed. An example is jewelry; it seems more and more people are adding jewelry without telling us.
10. Setup You can set up on Friday from 9.a.m. until 9.00 p.m. and early Saturday from 6 a.m. to 8
11. HOTELS: IN JULY WE WILL SEND OUT INFORMATION ON SPECIAL HOTEL RATES
12. RV Parking is available at the Coliseum. Contact the coliseum for prices. 228-594-3700.
13. Nametags. Each exhibitor will receive 2 nametags per booth. Additional nametags will be $5.00
per name tag. NO EXCEPTIONS!
14. RAFFLES: No raffles are permitted without the written approval of Ron Meyers.
Ron Meyers and Cross 2 Success Ministries reserves the right to cancel or reassign your booth
without notice. Your booth fee guarantees you a place in the show only. We also reserve the right to
evict anyone from the show for violation of rules or rude behavior. We do not anticipate any problems,
but we must be prepared for anything. In order for Christmas City to remain the success that it has
been in the past, it is imperative to run a professional show with professional exhibitors.
