Hey there, wedding pro! Is The Swoon Event for you?

This show is for the wedding creative whose target couple appreciates design, has attention to detail and is community oriented. If you're down for soirees with a personal touch, then yes, this is most definitely for you!

This is a curated, fun-filled wedding show for brides, grooms, wedding professionals and the party curious who love putting in the hard work to create magic. We are open to anyone offering a fresh take in the following categories - floral, decor, photography, event design/planning, letterpress, catering, food trucks, desserts, live music, DJ, jewelry, clothing, make-up artistry, hairstyling, groom products and services... You catch our drift!

This is a live advertisement for your brand. This is your chance to show these lovebirds what you are made of in an interactive and pressure-free environment. Since this is not a cattle call, you'll get quality time to mingle with the guests and communicate why you do what you do.

SPACE:
• Standard indoor booth: 6' deep x 8' wide - $325 (Austin food vendors add $98 for a Temporary Food Permit, total $423) Larger sizes may be available upon request.
• Food Truck/Mobile Company: size varies - $250.
• Electricity : $15. You may not use electricity unless you request it. Due to limited availability, please only select this option if it is vital to your display or service.

• Vendors are responsible for all decor, tables, chairs, additional lighting and any other items needed for the set-up of their booth.

• Booths can be shared with one other business for an additional $100. Both businesses must complete a separate application and note that they are looking to partner with each other. Payment must be submitted by one party.

• Application fee - $10 (non-refundable)
• Booth fee, and if applicable, shared booth fee (refundable if not accepted). Payment is due immediately by going to www.mkt.com/theswoonevent
• Returning vendors receive a 15% discount by using the code GOINGGOINGBACKBACK at checkout

Please note: A $30 fee will apply for any returned payments. Due to high demand, please note your application is not complete and will not be reviewed without payment or without all of the required fields completed.
• Caterers are encouraged to pass out small samples. Depending on your location, additional fees may apply.
• Vendors are free to use other companies' products to accessorize within their booths, but you cannot promote, pass out business cards or sell products for a company that is not an event participant. This makes it fair for everyone.
• We are a small business supporting small businesses, so we are here to support each other. Therefore, we rely heavily on bridal magazine and general media sponsorships, grass roots marketing and social media to get the word out. These are effective tools, so if you have a passion for the show and plan on spreading the word, please let us know it! If you have no interest in promoting your work or supporting other vendors by promoting the show, then this may not be the best fit.
• Please note that because of event obligations, refunds after acceptance into the event will not be granted if you are unable to attend, unless we fill your spot, but it is not a guarantee.
• Please keep in mind that this show is affordable for two reasons. 1) It gives up-and-coming creatives a chance to gain exposure and 2) Each vendor has the capacity to be as creative as possible with their booths.

*** PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION IF YOU HAVE NO PLANS TO SUBMIT THE REQUIRED FEES. WE ARE A SMALL BUSINESS AS WELL AND DO NOT HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REVIEW INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF OUR TIME. WE WILL MOST DEFINITELY DO THE SAME. ***
