  • We have VERY competitive rates for vendors

  • 80% of our attendees have never attended a massage convention before....Do they know about you and your products or services?

  • Vend 4 consecutive years at Festival and your 5th year is FREE

  • Our door prize drawings and other special events happen IN the vending hall, providing even more motivation for attendees to be there

When advertising your presence at Festival, please be sure to include in that advertising that
ENTRANCE TO THE WMF EXHIBIT HALL IS ALWAYS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!!!

With all of us advertising throughout the Chicago area, we can expect to get a lot of local traffic to the exhibit hall.
