FAQs for Premier Bride Expo Exhibitors
1. How do I sign up to be a vendor?
All vendors sign up via our website! Each vendor needs to create a profile online. Once you create your user name and password you can log-in any time and change the information on your profile.
2. How is the show advertised?
The Premier Bride Expo creates a detailed adverting and marketing plan for each expo. Our goal is to attract serious brides and grooms to the expo so vendors can book business. First, the shows are supported by Premier Bride Magazine of Northeast Florida. This publication is in over 500 locations from Amelia Island to Palm Coast and everywhere in between. The show buys local magazine covers, ads in bridal/wedding publications, paid social media campaigns, direct mail, posters, flyers, free ticket distribution, eblasts, and internet ads. For some shows we buy radio spots, TV ads or billboards.
3. Are there category limits?
Yes, there are strict category limits for each show. This ensures a great ROI for vendors and gives brides and grooms a great variety. Direct marketing companies are limited to one vendor spot per show. Call or email for more details.
4. What is included in my booth?
Each booth includes pipe, drape, a banquet table, chairs, linens, sign for your business, WIFI, 2 lunch tickets, bottle water, and the registration list. Each booth is 10x10 in size. A hightop table is 5x5 in space and includes the same things except the table is a 30 inch round table instead of a banquet table, and 1 lunch ticket instead of 2. Hightop tables are restricted to certain categories.
