THE LAYOUT: The Trade Show is located at the north end of the public area, near the crews and the finish line. We provide individual tents starting on each side of the main entrance, subject to conditions and number of participants. A special boat display area will be between the sidewalk and the Champions Pavilion on the Knoll (main tent).
You are welcome to open on Friday when special activities are planned and large numbers of participants and family members will be on-site. We will make every effort to accommodate your location choice; however, the final placement of each vendor will be at the discretion of the San Diego Crew Classic. Sponsors have a priority and space is limited.
The Crew Classic Merchandise Tent will be located within the Trade Show area, at the main entrance—patrons will walk through it to reach the venue.
PRICING: On the anticipated Trade Show layout, the access and appeal of the spaces is nearly equal. However, the end locations are considered “prime” and therefore priced accordingly.
TENT SPACE: Tents are 10’x10’, 10’x20’, and 20’x20’, with common walls with the tent next door. Please note that the Trade Show configuration does not allow for overflow merchandising beyond 5 feet in front of your tent. Exceeding 5 feet will restrict access to your neighbor.
BOAT EXHIBITORS: In an effort to best accommodate vendors displaying boats, we will follow the same plan as previous years. If you wish to display a boat, you have two choices. A 10’x20’ tent space will hold most singles, within the tent, set up on the diagonal. Singles cannot be accommodated in front of your tent due to their length and blocking of the space of your neighbor. If you wish to display a boat in the boat display area across the sidewalk from your tent, in front of the main tent, you may do so for an additional charge. You must have a 10’x10’ tent. The first boat of any size will be $500. Each additional boat will be $250, with a maximum of three boats.
EQUIPMENT: Each 10’x10’ space includes one 8’ table and two chairs. Electricity is available for an additional cost of $50.00 per space. We will monitor use of electricity by those who have not requested access. To direct-order any additional equipment or amenities such as table skirts, cloth covers, and easels, please see the Furnishing and Equipment Form and contact Willie Williams of Classic Party Rentals at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 496-9700.
RESERVATIONS: Spaces are limited and we typically cannot accommodate all vendors who apply. To reserve your space, please fill out and send in the reservation form below, the contract, and fee.

CANCELLATIONS: There are no refunds. Remember that the event is a GO, rain or shine!
PARKING and ACCESS: Given the layout and considerable space constraints of the site, it is not possible for Trade Show participants to park vehicles adjacent to their spaces, and parking within the fenced area is prohibited in our City permit. Also, the San Diego Police on site will prohibit you from driving inside the venue during regatta hours. Please inquire at the Information Tent when you check in about the availability of utility carts. Availability may be limited, so we advise you to come prepared with hand carts, etc. We are still working on a plan to make set up go more smoothly for our Trade Show vendors—we may have more options by event time. We do anticipate enforcement of the “no vehicles inside fence” policy, so we appreciate your cooperation. Unfortunately, free parking will not be provided in the lot immediately adjacent to the Trade Show during the event.
Beginning Thursday at noon, check in at the Information Tent to pick up your packet and tent location. Your packet will contain your wrist bands for admission on Saturday and Sunday.The San Diego Crew Classic cannot be responsible for damage or loss.Please put all trash in the trash containers provided.
