Security will be provided by the Denver Public Library and the Rocky Mountain Map Society during the show; 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.
To allow adequate individual booth space and easy access to all booths by
the public, the number of exhibitors at the 2003 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.
Refunds will be available for cancellations prior to 8/1, 2003 at the rate of 1/2 of funds deposited. Any refund after 8/1/03 will be at the discretion of the RMMS. If you have not yet sent a signed dealer agreement, please send it along as soon as possible.
Shipping your merchandise directly to and from the Denver Public Library will be an option. A separate signed agreement will need to be returned to the DPL in accordance with their requirements before anything is shipped. I will forward the necessary information to any dealer who requests it. If you plan to use the option of shipping directly to the DPL, please advise me.
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 Myron West (see below) 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
All dealers should send Myron 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. or 307-638-2396 (home), 307-638-2222 (shop)
