FLL FW X CMC Pop-up Experience.

Expect: Luxury shopping, exclusive insights into new season collections, presentations and evening Booths start at $200 to $500 USD. This includes approximately 65 square feet of space (roughly 8ft x 8ft, space for a banquet table, two chairs, and standing room). Space allocation may vary depending on the venue. We do try to allow extra space for caterers and photo booths.

FLL Fashion Week is more than just presentation, it is a marketing platform to display your brand with style!

***Events standard, Please note: All sales are non-refundable.***

How do I register?

Registration is 100% online, via Eventbrite (select the appropriate category above and click the green “register” button to proceed to checkout), and we accept all major credit cards. We prefer that you use a credit card for payment so your booth space is reserved immediately upon checkout. Please contact us if you need to make special arrangements for payment, such as a corporate check etc…

How many buyers/guests attend your shows?

Typically around 200-400 guests per day. Following health guidelines, our 2021 event attendees will be reduced 50%

Do you charge buyers to attend the show?

No – we ask that they pre-register (so we have good contact info and other lead-related data), but the tickets are free for buyers, press, and bloggers.How do you advertise the show?We have developed a great “secret formula” using social media, email marketing, and local promoters to help us get the word out about our shows. Most of our guests are from Dade County, West Palm Beach, and Broward. 

Do you limit the number of vendors at the show?

Yes – we are limited to a maximum total number of vendors (depending on the show venue, normally 30-40), and we also limit the number of vendors in each category (typically 3-5 vendors from each category – i.e. 5 beauty products, 3 jewelry, etc.). The registration page will show the number of booth registrations remaining for each category. As the show date gets closer, we do have some flexibility and will occasionally add an extra booth to a particular category, so check with us if your category is sold out and we may be able to accommodate you. Note that some categories (such as Mary Kay, It Works, and 31 Gifts) are limited to one vendor per show. These booth spaces always sell out very early.

When do we set up for the show?

Doors typically open for vendors 3-4 hours before the show. It is imperative that you arrive early to set up. Booth locations are issued on a first come, first serve basis (so if you are the last vendor to arrive, you’ll get the last available space…that no one else wanted!). Even if you only think it will take you a few minutes to setup, please keep in mind there will be 30 to 40 other vendors trying to park, unload, and set-up at the same time as you, and setup must be complete 1hour  before the show starts. We recommend you arrive early, setup, then relax and go grab some coffee or brunch and come back for the show ready to knock ’em dead!

Will we have pipe & drape surrounding our booth?

We keep our costs low by using as few rental items as possible and for the set-up to look simple and clean, so in most cases your booth will either have the wall, or pipe and drape, behind it. There will not be pipe and drape between each booth. 

Can I bring extra people to help me work my booth?

Yes – in fact that’s a great idea! Especially for the first couple of hours, the show can be very busy, so it’s a good idea to have an extra person or two. Please keep it reasonable and be courteous of your neighbors and our space limitations. It’s also a great idea to have someone help you setup and breakdown. We request full names of your helpers 5 days before the event as they will need to check-in when they arrive.Can we provide food or product samples?Yes – For example, most caterers provide food samples, a buffet, or food display at the show.

Can we do giveaways or special promotions at the show?

Yes, you’re allowed to giveaways or add place gift bags on the runway chairs. You are also encouraged to offer prizes and discounts, and you can announce these via the show MC/DJ durin the intermissions. 

Can we sell products at the show?

Yes. But keep in mind, most guests are not in “buying mode” at Fashion shows – they are just looking for information. You might find a more effective approach is to collect contact information for follow up, and set an appointment to have the clients visit your business after the show, when you have each other’s full attention.

Will electricity and wi-fi be available?

Yes – our venues typically provide electricity and wi-fi. Please bring your own power strips.

Do vendors receive a lead list with guests’ email addresses after the show?

Yes – Your registration includes the list of all the designers and guests who attended the show, along with contact info. We also offer Facebook, Instagram sponsorships and email blasts (also available as upgrades when you register), which is a great way to increase your exposure to the local fashion market. Note that it takes us about a week to prepare the lead list, so we encourage you to collect contact info at the show (especially for those “hot leads”) so you can follow up as soon as possible after the show.
