Vendor FAQ's

How can I participate?

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, you will need to fill out an online application that includes a $10 non-refundable application fee.

Why is there an application fee?

Toasted is a curated show which means that each applicant is reviewed and selected carefully so that we can offer show-goers a completely diverse and quality experience. The $10 non-refundable application fee goes towards the processing of all applications we receive. This does not guarantee a space in the show.  If accepted, the application fee will go towards the cost of your space.

What do I get?

Booth offerings and pricing vary for each city. Refer to the Events page for the city you wish to participate to see available options.

Is there electricity or WiFi?

Electricity is available in all our venues, but we can not guarantee it. So, please let us know if it is absolutely necessary for you. There is an additional $20 charge if electricity is required. WiFi is typically available in all our venues. Specific information is given to vendors in their vendor packets after their acceptance into the show.

Can I share a booth?

We will assess this on a case by case basis. If you feel that both businesses meet our guidelines for what we're looking for, do apply separately but let us know you wish to share. If one company is accepted and the other is not, you will have the option to keep the table or let it go. 

How will I know if I have been selected?

A schedule of deadlines for each event will be posted in the Events section. Each vendor will be notified of their acceptance, via email, according to the schedule dates. We will have a waiting list for those whose work we LOVE but just don't have enough space for. Everyone who applies is, unfortunately, not guaranteed acceptance.

Do I need a vendor permit or license?

All vendors are required to be licensed, legal businesses within their home state.  By participating in the event, you are responsible for registering with the IRS and filing appropriate taxes.

**Food or alcohol vendors may be required to provide additional certification and must have appropriate permits to serve offsite. 

Do I need insurance?

Insurance requirements vary by venue. For each event, we offer umbrella insurance to cover vendors for the duration of the show. If you don't have your own event insurance, you'll need to opt in to umbrella coverage for the day of the show. More information regarding this will be sent out in your vendor kit, if accepted.

What if I have to drop out?

For the event to be as successful and fantastic as we're expecting, we need your full commitment. That being said, we know life happens, and have a refund policy in place. If accepted, you have 3 weeks prior to the event, to cancel for a 50% refund. After that, no refunds will be granted. Your $10 application fee is non-refundable under any circumstance.
