SETTING UP YOUR BOOTH

Floor Plan: To be sent one week prior to event.

Team Members: Each vendor is provided with a set number of vendor tickets for staff. It is the responsibility of the vendor to switch out passes with leaving/incoming staff if needed.

Discovery Lounge Maintenance: We publish professional photos after the summit designed to showcase your on-site brand presence and use our favorites in our marketing materials to give you extra exposure! Published images are typically selected based on how tidy they look, so please bear in mind: 

  • No water bottles / drinks containers on top of table
  • No jackets on chairs or visible around your stand
  • No litter
  • No personal devices on display

F&B Vendors: Please note that our venues do not offer prep kitchens, therefore all vendors must provide their own equipment inclusive of: refrigeration, freezers, conventional ovens, ice, coolers, etc. Open flames are not permitted.

Bar Carpet/Tarp: If you will be using any type of liquid or ice for your demonstration, you will be required to bring a bar carpet or tarp to place under your area/ice buckets for safety.

Utensils/Plates/Napkins: You are responsible for providing your own utensils, plates, and napkins.

Garbage: We will be providing large communal garbage cans around the venue and in the Discovery Lounge. If you need a smaller garbage can, please bring your own and empty in one of the larger bins provided. 

PRE-EVENT SHIPPING

All pre-summit product shipments must be approved by the FounderMade Production team. Our venue partners have limited space available, so it will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
