Spring Fest Exhibitor Overview
There are several requirements to be an exhibitor at Spring Fest. Here are a few frequently asked questions to get you started:
How can I be part of Spring Fest?
Any college, unit, or department within Purdue University can be part of Spring Fest, as long as they have an educational message that is suitable for the family-style audience.
Student organizations that want to be part of Spring Fest must:
- Be in good standing with the Office of the Dean of Students.
- Fulfill all SAO Office requirements for event participation (including the activities form)
- Develop an educational activity that is appropriate for the audience at Spring Fest
- Submit required information by the deadlines – Deadline for participation is February 21st. No new exhibitors will be allowed after that date.
Can I sell stuff at Spring Fest?
No commercial or NON-Purdue organizations are permitted to sell items at Spring Fest. The only exception to this is if the items are related to the activity and the sponsoring student organization gets 100% of all sales (not just a percentage). Contact Amy, firstname.lastname@example.org, for clarification of this.
Student organizations can sell items as long as they have an engaging, educational component to their activity.
How do I get a tent? Or where can I be at Spring Fest?
Only certain areas around campus have been allocated for Spring Fest. Exhibitor Form #1 can be used to request a tent. You are responsible for the cost but ordering is done as a group through Amy Winger.
We do not generally allow organizations to simply “set up a table” somewhere on campus. A list of events/activities and a map will be available on the website so participants can plan their day.
How do I get power in my tent? Trash cans? Helium tanks?
See Spring Fest Exhibitor Manual
If I’m a non-department student organization (e.g. social or sport related), where will I be?
These groups are handled on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes we find a place in another tent, sometimes they buy their own tent, and sometimes space is allocated to them for their activities.
