Please see fullybooked.ae for more on the Fully Booked fair and the 2017 fair archive.
★We are seeking applications from individuals, groups, and collectives—artists, designers, creatives, and publishers producing and working in the mediums of printed matter, books, prints, and/or multiples. These individuals/groups may be based anywhere and have work in any language, but the application must please be in English. Exhibitors or a representative are highly encouraged to be present at their tables during the fair's full opening day and throughout the weekend's open hours, when much of the live programming will occur. We aim to be able to provide exhibitors with trained volunteers to cover their tables if the exhibitors wish to take off certain hours or days of the fair. Volunteers will be able to record sales inquiries and make sales; volunteers are intended to facilitate exhibitors' presence throughout the fair.
★Schedule details:Fully Booked will occur during the annual Dubai Art Week, March 19–24, 2018, and will happen at the same time as many exciting creative/art events in the city.
All exhibitors will be provided with a table, folding chairs, and an exhibitor sign with your name and location base. There will be a program of events for visitors during the fair to be able to explore the city and the other art events in Art Week. Volunteers will be present to assist exhibitors during the fair. Please keep in mind that volunteers will be spread out throughout the fair to tend to the needs of multiple exhibitors. Vendors keep 100% of their proceeds during the fair.
It is free to apply to Fully Booked. A non-refundable table fee will be required of all accepted fair exhibitors upon receipt of their acceptance into the fair. Table Size options as a Fair Vendor are: (Half Table $75 USD) (Single Table $150 USD) (Double Table $300 USD) or (Exhibitor only with no selling table: no table & no fee). Please add in your application if you are a student for consideration of discounted student pricing for tables.
★Vendors who cannot attend, but wish to participate in Fully Booked, can submit their books to the Fully Booked exhibition which will be on display during and after the fair. While there is no fee for this exhibition, all books included in this display at the fair will be available for the public to browse and handle. Books submitted to the exhibition portion of Fully Booked will be archived at a local Artist Residency Research Library after the closing of the exhibition. All books for the exhibition must be mailed and delivered to Dubai before March 1st, 2018 (exact address to come). Those wishing to include their work in this fashion must still complete this form. You may apply both to include your work in the exhibition portion and to be a vendor in the fair—if you do both, you may bring your exhibition submissions with you and do not need to mail them ahead of time.
We are currently arranging discount hotel/travel accommodations for Fully Booked participants and will have details following application acceptances. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you for your application!
