This year at Realm Makers we are excited to have our first vendor hall along side our usual consignment bookstore. In the past we’ve been a bit cramped in the bookstore due to the volume of books and merchandise being made for sale and rather than limit that at all we are finding creative ways to make more room and improve the value of the conference for our authors, freelance editors, publishers, creative professionals and other service providers. Anyone can choose to have a vendor table though priority for table placement will go to our sponsors and service providers. Authors who want their own tables in the vendor area will be closest to the bookstore.
New this year…
- Vendor Table ($50)
- Vendor Registration Discount ($199 registration fee applies to vendors who choose not to attend class sessions, sign up for Agent/Editor appointments, or purchase a paid critique. Let us know if you also wish to take appointments. This price includes all catered meals, keynote addresses and conference activities.) Simply register as a “Vendor Only.”
- Customized Scheduling App ($25) – Forget running to the registration desk to check on your next appointment or missing one scheduled at the last minute. Schedule appointments with clients via an app on your phone that will allow you to manage your own availability on the fly, know your schedule at all times, and allow our staff to fill available time slots for you. Create different types of appointments with different timeframes and unique intake forms for each. You can even make last minute changes and let your clients know immediately via email or text notification. Receive text notification immediately when a new appointment is created. Follow up with a “Where are you?” text when they are late. When the conference is over, you will have all that information available to you til the end of August.
If you are a publisher, service provider, creative professional, multi-published author with a good number of books to sell, or are selling merchandise other than books, you might consider purchasing a table in the vendor hall. If you wish to take appointments as well, we encourage everyone to add the customized scheduling app to your registration.
If you are an author with a book or two that you’d like to sell in the bookstore, simply consigning those books in the bookstore would be your best option.
More details will be forthcoming…
