Greetings conference vendors, past and new. Again this year there may be no one dedicated on-site for check-in other than WCU staff. Will update you if that changes. The conference is scheduled for July 17-20, 2019, with the center of activities again in the Ramsey Center—easy loading and unloading, water available, plant purchases cared for, refreshment breaks in the vendor area, etc.
You first need to go online and register for the conference. You must be registered
to be a vendor.
Then...contact me and let me know that you would like a booth. I will contact you to discuss your status if needed, or most likely to just confirm that you have a booth. I will then give you a confirmation number which you will need to fill out your Vendor Form. The vendor fees have kindly been paid by SC Native Plant Society to promote all vendors and particularly to attract new vendors. So send in your forms but you will not need to send any money. Then…mail the form to WCU:
WCU Office of Professional Growth and Enrichment
138 A Cordelia Camp Building
Cullowhee, NC 28723
This year we will have the plant vendor walk and each vendor who wishes to talk about their plants will have about 5 minutes to highlight whatever points or aspects of their nursery they wish. The time allowed will be evenly divided so that each nursery representative will have a chance to speak. The vendor walk is scheduled for Thursday morning at 8:30 before all the cool plants are sold and moved to the holding area.
We plan to continue the auction this year as our contribution to scholarships. Please be thinking of some special plants or other items that you would like to donate to the auction. Details will follow.
Thanks everyone. Looking forward to getting together once again.
