WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING EXHIBITORS!
Why vendors should come:
NW Indiana Prepares 2020 will offer expert speakers, hands-on skill-building opportunities, and vendors with preparedness and sustainable living products and services. At least two presentation areas will be scheduled simultaneously. One indoors and one outdoors under a very large shelter. This family-friendly event will be free to attend and open to the public. Approved vendors will be provided with a 12 X 12 outdoor space adjacent to the outdoor shelter for only $20. Those providing a presentation, hands-on experience, or demonstration will receive a 50% discount on their vendor space! The 'approval' ensures that all vendors have targeted our preparedness audience and that there are no duplicated products. All 12 X 12 spaces are outdoors. Vendors will provide their own table, chairs, and if you wish a pop-up shelter, to create your booth. A limited number of spaces have availability to electric for an additional $10.00. Vendor Application: http://4familysafety.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/NWIP-2020-Vendor-App.pdf Whether you are able to join us as a presenter, vendor or even if unable to attend this year, your product or business can gain attention through a donation to our Silent Auction. All items will be prominently displayed during the event and constant online advertisements will be posted on our website and frequently shared throughout social media. (As a 501c3 non-profit we will send a donation receipt for your tax purposes.)
Our expected attendance:
People have continued to ask us when NW Indiana Prepares will be held again. There is much local interest. Estimated attendance at our NW Indiana event the first year was 200+ and the 2nd year it was over 300 to maybe 400 preparedness-minded attendees. Upon request, I'll be happy to send you a pdf of a past year's schedule of events to give you an idea of the program we plan to duplicate.
Here's how we plan on getting the right people in the door:
To advertise the event and invite the public, we have very active targeted social media accounts and a large mailing list, including the Live Free, USA membership and their bi-monthly publication. We do local advertising as well with radio interviews and publishing event details in newspapers both in print and online. Admission for the public is FREE which encourages attendance.
Our experience with shows:
While the NW Indiana Expo has not been held annually it is also not brand new. We've had two NW Indiana Prepares events in past years. The years in-between our time and efforts have needed to be concentrated into the planning of our national organizations (Live Free, USA) annual 'Camp Independence' event. Camp Independence has been held for 45+ years! http://AmericanSurvivor.org
