With five highly successful events under our belt, we are excited to be hosting ROPECRAFT Austin this fall!
Our Austin convention runs October 26th through the 28th in Round Rock, TX. You'll have two full days of vending plus an optional Friday afternoon start!
Sell rope? You can't ask for a more targeted demographic, and the entire ROPECRAFT event wants to help you succeed. Our vendor coordinator is Jake Wing, and he can be reached at email@example.com. Applications close 45 days before our event for sure but are accepted on a rolling basis so don't wait! Space is limited.
And in case you're wondering, the Vending Sponsorship levels - "Munter", "Half-Hitch", "Bowline" and "Double-Coin" are knots. This is bound to be fun and knot to be missed. Come join us!

**Sponsor and Vendor Guidelines and Information**
Vending load in will begin at 10 am Friday morning. Vendors will not be permitted to set up before load in begins or after the vendor area closes at 8 pm Friday. Only vendor badges will be allowed into the vendor area during load in.
The vendor’s area will open to attendees at 5pm Friday afternoon. No commerce will be permitted before this time. Any non-vendors inside the vendor area before it opens will be asked to leave.
Each vendor will be assigned a space within the vendor area. This is the only space that each vendor is allowed to occupy.
Each tier clearly states number of tables that will be provided. Vendors may not bring in additional tables. All allocated tables will be in the vendor’s demarcated space when they arrive for load in. Vendors are welcome to set them up to best suit their needs with their demarcated space.
Vendors are not permitted to market and/or advertise within the convention center outside of their demarcated space without prior arrangement and permission from ROPECRAFT staff. This includes, but is not limited to, signage on walls, roaming leafleters, and placing promotional materials on tables that are not inside of the vendor’s demarcated area (unless otherwise specified).
All graphics must be complete and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org 30 days before the start of the convention in order to be included in our online gallery. It is advantageous to get these graphics to us as soon as possible so we can promote you!
All promotional materials must be received two weeks prior to the start date of the event be added to our Attendee Welcome Packet. An address will be provided for shipping upon receipt of payment for the Vendor or Sponsor Tier.
