Dear Vendor,

Thank you for your desire to build this community with us. We are a small team of friends and this showcase in May would be our second showing. We are excited to work with new brands and faces. We are looking forward to meeting you and we hope you enjoy the event as much as we did at the last edition.

 

As we grow, we hope that the community remains respectful and that we can work together to create the best experience for all of us brand owners & our shared pool of clients.

 

We treasure consideration and great relationships, and hope to preserve that with you. 

Wishing you a fruitful year ahead, 

The Somerset Showcase Team

(Core Team: Michelle, Tiravan, Clara, Mel & Germaine)

Branding

 

The organising team will be investing in built structures, beautiful floral arrangements and carpets to direct crowd flow, beautify the space and elevate the shopping experience of our buyers. ​The pathways of the event hall will be carpeted in teal.

 

​We kindly ask that brands invest time to design and plan their presentation of products for an elevated shopping experience., and to match the overall ambience. It will set our efforts apart from other simple fair experiences and attract clientele with a higher-spend capacity.

 

For Handmade & Artists:

*It is compulsory for all artists and handmade brands to rent a standardised table with cover from the team at $35.  We will arrange all transport and removals on your behalf. 

*Please ensure that your table set-up is presentable and aesthetically pleasing.

If in doubt, please contact Clara at clarachan@thesomersetshowcase.com with pictures of your proposed set-up for advice. Please highlight your brandname in the subject line. 

*We reserve the right to reposition any booth during the event due for event aesthetic purposes, if necessary. 

For Retail Brands:

*Backdrops are not compulsory, but recommended. Please ensure that they are no taller than 2m.

*Personal carpeting for your booth is not compulsory, but recommended.

*Do choose carpet colours that would be a good contrast or complement to our event colours.

 

Your Space​ & Positioning 

We will do our best to keep everyone's needs in mind. However, we apologise that we are unable to accede to any requests beyond the constraints of the venue and event requirements. 

*Electrical points will be provided near your booths. Some plugs will require sharing. Please bring your own electrical multi-plugs and exercise consideration when sharing between your neighbours. The TSS team will assist with going around to check and tape multi-plugs down with duct tape for safety.

*Vendors are allowed to use LED and battery operated lighting to enhance their set-up.

*Vendors not allowed to use any high-voltage equipment.
