TRAVEL / TOURISM EXHIBITOR INFO

REGISTRATION BEGINS NOVEMBER 1 AND ENDS JANUARY 31.


TRAVEL and TOURISM EXHIBITORS (non-group tent)

The regular, or non-group, tents are for travel and tourism exhibitors not involved in a Group Tent. Typically the festival host assigns booths geographically with a tent lay-out of two side rows and a middle row.

Those eligible for this tent are local attractions that also include locally-owned cafes and bed-and-breakfasts. These displays must be about a place that tells the story of the rural culture of a place: architecture, art, commerce, cuisine, customs, geography, history, and people. Locally-owned stores may be included in a community display to show what kind of shopping opportunities are offered in a town.

NOT ELIGIBLE:
  1. Service companies like insurance companies and health distributors
  2. Schools, churches, government and military unless some historical aspect is being promoted (in that case no religious or enrollment information may be distributed).
  3. Home based businesses such as Scentsy, Premiere Jewelry, etc.
  4. Social organizations like Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, etc. HOWEVER these groups are encouraged to be a sponsor, volunteer or have a food booth to raise funds for their group. No organizational materials may be distributed.
  5. National franchise attractions, including lodging or restaurants.
  6. Political booths and no political materials distributed.
Exhibitors in the travel tents should have creative informational displays that enthusiastically tell the story of their Kansas community attractions in a manner that will encourage the public to visit.

Sale items are discouraged though one item at a time can be put out, per approval of host (additional fee of $25 for this).
