Dealer Information

The Second Annual Rocky Mountain Antique Map Fair took place from 9:00 AM until 5:00PM on Saturday, September 21, 2001 in the conference center on the lower level of the Denver Public Library at 10 W. 14th Avenue, (13th Avenue & Broadway) in downtown Denver. Dealer set up time was on Friday September 20th, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM, and Saturday September 21st from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. During these times, access to the conference center was limited to registered dealers and members of the Rocky Mountain Map Society.

Access to the loading dock was available to dealers during set up times.

Many choices in lodgings are available within easy walking distance of the Fair site. We will be reserving a block of rooms in the Downtown Comfort Inn at the discounted rate of $109.00 per room. The Comfort Inn is owned by and physically connected to the Brown Palace Hotel, the best known and possibly the finest hotel in Denver. Amenities of the Brown Palace are available to Comfort Inn guests. This hotel is about 3 blocks from the DPL. We need to get a count on the number of dealers who will be using this option as soon as possible so that we know how many rooms to reserve.

Security will be provided by the Denver Public Library and the Rocky Mountain Map Society; however, responsibility for personal property and equipment will not be assumed by the Denver Public Library, the Rocky Mountain Map Society, or any of itís members or employees. Dealers must retain responsibility for their own property at all times.

In order to allow adequate individual booth space and easy access to all booths by the public, the number of exhibitors at the 2002 Map Fair will be limited to 20. Dealer spaces will be a multi table arrangement, approximately 8í x 12í. The DPL will not allow any tape or tacks to be used on their walls or tables; consequently there will be no wall space for display. There will be a partition, probably post & drape, behind each booth on which unframed maps can be hung. Table drapes will be provided by the Map Society to those who need them. Booth assignments will be based on the order in which exhibitors are confirmed, but all the spaces will have similar access and visibility. There are already more dealers interested in showing than can be accommodated, so you are urged to please confirm your request to exhibit as soon as possible. Booth rent is $350.00. Those dealers that exhibited at the inaugural fair last year will be eligible for a $50.00 discount.

Shipping your merchandise directly to and from the Denver Public Library will be an option. Specific instructions will be provided at a later date for those interested in utilizing this service.

Dealer contracts will be prepared and sent out within the next few weeks. The contracts will be fairly simple and will include guidelines and rules of the fair as well as dates when payments must be received.

We look forward to conducting another profitable and enjoyable event. We will make a major publicity effort both locally and internationally, but all participants are encouraged to publicize the event in any way they consider appropriate.

Please contact me as soon as possible regarding your plans for hotel accommodations. At this point everything is very flexible, but we need to get an idea of the numbers right away.

All of the dealers from last year have confirmed their intention to show again. Those dealers that are being added for 2002 should confirm their desire to exhibit by sending me an email soon. All dealers should send me their firm names and addresses as they wish for them to appear in any promotional literature.

If I can answer any questions or address any other concerns, please feel free to contact me at farwesttc@sisna.com.

Thank You
