Please bookmark this page on your mobile device, as information is being updated daily. We appreciate your generosity and willingness to participate, and know this will be the best event yet! 

 

IMPORTANT

  1. CANCELLATION - If your organization cancels or no-shows on the day of the event, we have already rented tables, table covers, purchased signage, and more. More importantly, event spaces are left empty creating an eyesore that could have been filled with other vendors. Please give (at least) a 72-hour notice if you have registered and later discover that you will not be able to attend.  

  2. TENTS - If you plan to bring a tent, we will provide carpet squares to protect the gym floor. Please notify us by noon on Monday if you did not include this information in your application.

RULES OF THE ROAD

  1. No children under the age of 18 are allowed in the facility. 

  2. Booth space / tables will not be broken down prior to 7 p.m.  Please prepare accordingly. 

  3. Please plan to have a minimum of 2 representatives per booth space. There will be thousands of eager students and having your booth space properly staffed is essential to event success. 

  4. If you will need power or if you plan to bring large equipment or a tent, you must contact us by the end of day on Monday. Email campusrec@auburn.edu. If you listed power or other special needs in your vendor application form, those have been added to the event plan and will be available at your booth space on the day of the event. 

  5. If we have not picked up your prizes prior to the event, they should be delivered to "Prize Central" off court 3, upon your arrival. If you are a food vendor, find a student team member in an orange shirt to deliver the items to Prize Central (courts 2 and 3) for you.
