MeFest Spring Event Saturday April 10, 2010

Hello MeFest Vendors

The Spring 2010 date is Saturday April 10th . The show will run from 9am-4pm at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex - Hauser Haus

As in the last event there will NOT be "protected categories", but there can only be one company represented.
For example there may be more than one Photographer, Make-Up Rep, Jewellery seller etc, but there can only be one Mary Kay Rep, Tupperware Rep, etc.
Being that we've had 2 shows we are offering spots to our past vendors 1st, but some of the reps were different for each show. This then means that company's spot will be filled on a 1st come (paid) 1st served basis.

The cost for the April 10th event is $120 per table.

Please CAREFULLY read all the stipulations below before registering

With your registration fee you will have the use of a 6 foot table & 2 chairs (please note this is not a BOOTH)
A vendors festival permit will be purchased by us, so you are able to sell at your tables
YOU MUST have a freebie for all partons of the show. It can something like a sample of your product, pampering service, maybe some candy with you business card. As proved in the past shows. The better your freebie, the more popular your booth is. The freebie ensure everyone visits every table. Once you have the people there, then it's your job to sell your product/service. It's WIN! WIN! for both your & the attendee.
YOU MUST have a draw for a prize at your table
There will be no refunds once you have paid for your spot.

Preferred method of payment is by Interac Online. If this is not available method for you please let us know asap.

Setup that day begins at 6:45am & all vendors must have their tables ready by 8:15am. We need that 45mins to get ready ourselves & you can use the time to network with others.
(speaking of networking... there will be an upcoming THOSE 2 GIRLS Networking event, but that's for a different email)

Please email us at
those2girls@writeme.com

For Confirmed Vendors

Hello Confirmed Vendors!

We are now just weeks away from our April 10th MeFest - A Celebration of You!
We hope you are just as excited for the event as we are.

This is a quick checklist of things you will need for the event & hope it is helpful to you.

If you are not familiar with the Waterloo Recreation Complex, please read the driving directions at the bottom of this email. (Take note that Maquest & GPS have problems with this address, so please take our directions with you)

Set up time on Saturday starts at 6:45am.

When you arrive at the Hauser Haus (3rd floor on the elevator) you will be checked in & given your table

You are responsible for your table's setup. Please bring tablecloths & the decor you are using & give yourself enough time to be ready..
If you were put down for electrical, make sure you have extension cords & powerbars with you.

There will be 2 elevators at each end of the Rec Complex to use.
Note that many of you will need the elevators so there may be a lineup. If you just have a few items I suggest using the staircase located beside the Swimplex desk.

When you are fully setup, we ask that you move your vehicle to the Bauer Lot across the street, as we wouldn't want our show patrons to have parking issues

All tables must have their setup complete by 8:15am. This will also give you time to Network with the other vendors. Diane & I will need that 45 mins to prepare for the openening of the show

If you are selling any items make sure you have a coin float to provide customers with change.

If you have not let us know what your Freebie is, this will now need to be finalized. Last event's # we gave vendors was 500, which worked well as we have over 400 attendees. These are for you to hand out at your table. This ensures that all patrons visit every table to receive their Freebie (or pampering service) which then give you the opportunity to sell your product/service. It's a "win-win" situation. We suggest that as attendees come by your table you ask "would you be interested in a free _____?". Then offer them a chance to enter your draw. While they are busy with all of that, it is then your opportunity to "feature" your products & services to them.

Ensure you have pens/pencils & ballots for your draw item. These ballots are yours too keep as your future contacts/customers

If you require washroom or food breaks (there is a concession stand downstairs), please get one of the volunteers to find Lisa or Diane to cover your table while you are away from it

Take down does not start until 4:00pm

There is a copy of our current flyer that is on this page. We'd appreciate you sending it off to all of your current customers. If all vendors brought approx. 10 of their current clients to the show, imagine how many new potential customers you may get to speak to!

All please post to any of your online/social media groups (ie forums, newsletters, facebook, twitter etc) that you will be attending the show.
We are so excited to have our Spring MeFest come together so well & are looking forward to the room being filled with the same positive energy we have at all of our events.
Looking forward to seeing you BRIGHT & EARLY April10th !!!
LISA & DIANE
aka those2girls
PS Make sure to tell all your current customers about the event!

Potential Vendor Info for April 4/09 Event





MeFest Potential Vendor Info
Thank you for visiting our site.

The team at MeFest is proud to announce our upcoming event on Saturday April 4th 2009

It will be a lifestyle/pampering show geared towards the women of today.


The show will run from 9am-4pm & will be located at the Waterloo Recreation Complex - Hauser Haus.

This is our 2nd show & if you attended last September you know what a successful event it was. At this time we have over half of our tables spoken for, so please note that availability is limited & all vendors must be approved by the MeFest team.

As a vendor for MeFest you will have the use of a 6 foot table & chairs for your spot. Please note this is not a Booth.

Set up time on event day begins at 6:45am & tear down will only start after 4pm. All vendors must be at the check in table no later than 8:15am

Their are 2 requirements to be in the show. The first is to have a freebie for EVERY patron of the show. It could be magnets, bookmarks, pampering service etc. or even something fun like halloween-sized Smarties packs with your label on them (no coupons or percentage off offers. It must be a TRUE freebie). This will attract guests to your table & at that time you can explain your business/service to them. In the end you both win! The 2nd is to provide a draw at your table with a prize that you wish to give away (no coupons or percentage off offers).

The cost for MeFest is $100 per table. Only one business per table. There are no refunds.

If you would like to be a vendor in the show on April 4th, we will require the following info



  • Your name, the name of your business & any other contact info
