Q + A

What precautions are you taking because of COVID-19?

Concerned about event safety? Details on all necessary steps that we are taking to ensure the safety of our vendors, employees and guests are provided HERE.

 

If you didn’t know, with much hesitation we hosted the 12th annual Just For Her Event the weekend of July 25-26 and received 100% positive feedback from guests about the safety of the event and the Overland Park Convention Center. View news coverage HERE and the Covid-19 Safety Plan HERE.

Are these events indoors or outdoors?

These are outdoor events and will be held in the parking lot at Town Center Plaza. Vendors will be under tents. Tent backs are provided for a fee.

Chick Events will go on rain or shine. We only cancel due to inclement weather if there is a safety issue so bring an umbrella if it rains, wear a coat if it snows and enjoy the sun if it’s warm! The midwest weather always keeps us guessing!

What is included in the booth fee?

Each booth will include a tented 10×10 space. Tents will be white and include a top but no back unless it has been requested and paid for in your application. There will not be any pipe and drape to separate booths. Space will be taped off but you will be side by side with your neighbor with no pipe/drape separation. Tables and chairs are NOT included in the booth fee. You may rent them through our contractor or you may bring your own.

When is set up?

Vendor move in time will be provided in the vendor packet 30 days prior to the event.

Do booths come with tables and chairs?

No, we do not provide tables and chairs in our booth fee. You may bring your own or rent from our rental company. More rental details will be available as we get closer to the event.

How many guests do you expect?

Every Chick Event since 2014 has drawn a minimum of 5,000-7,500 guests. We expect that number to be a little lower in 2020 because of COVID-19, but with removal of the ticket fee due to social distancing at the ticket tables, we still expect good attendance.

How do you select your vendors?

We consider all applications and make decisions bases on the following criteria:
– Product category (we like a wide variety of products and no more than a few of the same kinds of products – i.e. KC tees, wood signs, prints, jewelry)
– Product prices
– New or returning vendors (we like a mix so our shoppers see their favorites but also get to meet new makers and our show remains exciting with fresh, new products)
– Previous vendors should have new or seasonal product for our shoppers
– This event will are looking for fall decor, fall clothing & accessories to add to the handmade mix
– Amazing booth displays

We are always looking for great partners for our events at the local and national level. Our sponsorship packages offer our partners incredible branding opportunities prior to and at our events, including customized marketing packages. Contact Aimee for sponsorship information.
