Welcome Vendors

to the 2014 NQA 45th Annual Quilt Show!


 

  Thank you for consideration in our 45th Annual Quilt Show.  We have placed information on our website for your ease in use.  Included in this new system is the ability to choose your booth location.  Locations will be filled on a first come, first served basis.  An on-line reservation system is in place for secure payment through the use of the Paypal system (no need to sign in to Paypal).    If you would rather send in a check, the office can be utilized to process checks and/or credit cards.  Please register soon to hold your booth space.  Any questions, comments, or concerns that you have may be directed to the Vendor Coordinator, Sandra Soni, at nqavendorcoordinator@gmail.com.  We appreciate your support at this time, and always.

 Sincerely,

 Linda G. Miller,

Services, such as electricity, are obtained through the Greater Columbus Convention Center.  Additional furnishings and shipping services are obtained through the show decorator, Fern Exposition & Event Services.  An exhibitor package with complete information and appropriate forms will be available on-line to all contracted vendors approximately 4 weeks before the show.  Please watch for an email containing this information.

 

 An active e-mail address is very important.  Vital information and updates concerning your contract and issues pertaining to the show will be only communicated in this format.  Include the vendor coordinator’s email address in your list of safe addresses and/or check your junk mail (!), to make sure you do not miss important NQA/decorator information.    Websites are also very important in promoting you and the show.  Be certain that you have accurately listed an active web site address.  If you have a company logo, that, too, may be helpful with the promotion of the show.  Please send a jpeg file to nqavendorcoordinator@gmail.com, with the subject 'Vendor Logo'.
