Q. How many years has the Boulder Wedding Showcase been active?
A. This will be Boulder Wedding Showcase's 17th year.
Q. What makes the Boulder Wedding Showcase unique?
A. Boulder Wedding Showcase consists of local vendors who cater to clients mostly in the Boulder area. We also place limits on the number of vendors in each category, so you don't experience a show that is dominated just by caterers or only photographers. This gives a wide variety of vendors the opportunity to participate in the show and allows brides and their families to be able to have a one-stop-shopping experience in order to prepare for their upcoming wedding.
Q. One show - two buildings, how does that work?
A. Rembrandt Yard and Boulder Theater are less than a half of a block from each other, so dividing the show between the two spaces just makes sense. The vendors have more room to display and the attendees have more space to move around and talk to vendors. Attendees can purchase tickets at either venue and there are door personnel who make sure attendees know to visit both buildings in order to see everything there is to see in the show. With the additional space available, we can offer fun, interactive extras for the attendees. This year's Boulder Wedding Showcase will feature a Table Design Competition on the top floor at Rembrandt Yard where the latest trends in tablescapes will be on display. On stage at the Boulder Theater musicians will play live music.
Q. Can I rent vendor booth space in both Rembrandt Yard and Boulder Theater?
A. Since it is only one show that encompasses two buildings, vendors may only purchase booth space in one of the buildings and may not display in both buildings.
Q. How do I choose between locations?
A. Either building is going to have the same attendees, so the choice is yours as long as you register early. The longer you wait to register the fewer booth spaces will be available, so we do encourage early registration! Rembrandt Yard has more window space than wall space, so there is a lot of natural light at Rembrandt Yard. If you feel a lot of natural light will be better for your display then Rembrandt Yard is the place for you. Boulder Theater is a classic theater style building, so digital or lit displays often times show better when not in direct sunlight. Rembrandt Yard, being an art gallery, has artwork on the walls. If you feel this might not work well with your display then Boulder Theater might be a better choice for you.
Q. Where can I find a list of Vendor Terms & Conditions?
A. The terms and conditions that you agree to when you sign up to be a vendor at the Boulder Wedding Showcase are on the registration page. You may also find a copy of them here
Q. May vendors arrive early?
A. Vendors may arrive to set up at 9:00 a.m. Please do not arrive earlier, as door will be locked until that time.
Q. Is there a place for vendors to load and un-load?
A. There is a loading zone in front of each building where vendors may load and/or unload. Since this loading zone is shared by all vendors it is very important that you do your very best to load/unload quickly. No vendors are allowed to park in the loading zones, and as soon as you are finished with load-in you must move your vehicle so that the space becomes available for another vendor. Vehicles left in the loading zone that are not in the loading/unloading process will be towed, so again, do not park your vehicle in front of the building.
Q. Who is responsible for cleaning up after the showcase?
A. Vendors in the showcase are required to remove all equipment, display items, and trash from their booth space area, and/or the kitchen area if it is used by the vendor. Both the Boulder Theater and Rembrandt Yard participate in the City of Boulder's Recycling Program, and recyclables must be sorted from regular landfill trash. Vendors are welcome to use the trash/recycle bins at each facility as long as they sort their trash before putting it into the appropriate bin. If you do not wish to sort recyclables from non-recyclables, you must take your trash with you when you leave.
