How it works
• Each applicant must complete the entire application accurately and honestly. This will determine which category you fall into and how quickly your application will be processed.

• You will be given a unique reference number. This will be used for all correspondence between EIB and yourself. On the day, you will be able to identify your stall by your reference number.

• Your application will be reviewed by the stalls coordinator who will contact you throughout the application process.

• If you are successful then you will be advised within 3 to 4 weeks before the event date so you can get yourself organised in good time.

• Full payment will need to be paid within 7 days of notification from EIB to confirm your booking. If payment is not received within 7 days, then the stall will be offered to the next applicant on the waiting list.

• Only one vehicle per stall will be allowed on-site for loading and unloading purposes.

• Hot food vendors will be provided with a food health and safety pack.

• If too many applications are received, then a waiting list will be compiled. If anybody drops out then the next applicant on the list will be contacted.

• All applications must be submitted no later than Friday 15th May 2020, 11:59pm.

• Submitting a successful application form does not guarantee you a stall.
