Is EWE for women only?
The EWE is designed for women only; however, men may assist with the exhibitor booths. The workshops and social cocktail event are open to women only.
Are children permitted to EWE?
EWE has been designed as day to celebrate you and your business (or soon to be business)! It’s a day to allow complete focus on connecting, empowering, inspiring, and growing yourself and/or your business. It’s often difficult to do those things if children are present. Please leave the kiddos at home and enjoy a little “me” time for yourself. 🙂
Will multiple industries/categories be exhibiting?
The goal of the EWE is to only allow one representative per industry. This cannot be guaranteed at this time and will be determined by the need to fill exhibitor space. We do guarantee that only one like company will be represented (i.e. one Mary Kay, one UPS Store, or any other business that offers the exact same product). This is on a first come, first serve basis. Do NOT delay in signing up now before it’s too late. It is our hope that as the expo grows, we can guarantee only one representative per industry.
Will my competition be exhibiting?
It is possible your competition could be exhibiting. But, what everyone needs to keep in mind is that although you offer the same product, you don’t necessarily offer the same service. Use EWE to showcase your attributes. It’s not just about the products or services we offer. There’s so much more to being a woman entrepreneur. The expo is about not about selling one’s wares. It’s about coming together to support one another, share success stories, maybe unsuccessful stories, laugh, learn, and move forward in our lives and businesses.
We do guarantee that only one like company will be represented (i.e. one Mary Kay, one UPS Store, or any other business that offers the exact same product).
Can exhibitors set up the day before?
We have been very fortunate in past years to set up between 3-5pm the day before, but this is never a guarantee from the venue. Notification of this opportunity will be emailed to all exhibitors the week of the event or as soon as we know it’s possible. Please note that for the safety and liability of all involved, children under ages of 18 are not permitted in the expo space during set-up.
What are the tear down instructions for exhibitors?
Booths must be removed from the venue by 6pm on the day of EWE. We encourage you to keep your booth set up during the cocktail social as women will be around during this time.
Is the EWE environmentally friendly?
You betcha! In an effort to protect our environment, this is going to be green event. Please help us is in going paperless by registering and paying online (Register now!). You will receive all correspondence via email or phone.
We will be promoting the event through word of mouth (please spread the word to everyone you know), and online marketing. There will be no paper brochures printed.
The day of the event will feature cloth tablecloths, cloth napkins, no paper or plastic utensils, no bottled water, and no silly giveaway gizmos that clutter up your home and office.
What will take place during EWE?
You will just have to wait and be surprised! In addition to the workshops and exhibitor displays, the day will be interjected with surprises and fun! You won’t want to miss it!
What is the cancellation policy?
We really hope you don’t have to cancel, but if you do, all cancellations are subject to a $35 processing fee for each cancelled registration and/or vendor exhibit. No refunds will be given after August 1. Exhibitors may not transfer their booth space to any other company without permission from EWE management.
