STALL DETAILS

BACKING WALLS
A limited number of stalls are positioned along venue walls. Please specify in the 'Special requests' section of the application form if you would prefer to be in front of a wall or if you would like to bring your own backing wall/display. Please note, we are not always able to accommodate all requests/preferences but will do our best. 
TAPES AND ADHESIVES MUST NOT BE USED ON VENUE WALLS.

INCLUDED IN STALL FEE
• Each stallholder will be listed in our Designer Directory on the Markit + BakeSale website with a direct link to your website for a period of 6 months.
• Trestle tables (1800mm x 750mm) with white floor-length table cloths are included in the stall fee. Having a trestle is not a requirement. Please indicate on your application form if you do not require a trestle. If your product range would be better displayed on a stand (eg. clothing rack) you can bring these along on the day.

EXTRAS (NOT INCLUDED IN STALL FEE)
• Power – If you require power, additional fees apply and you must have all electrical items and cords tested and tagged by a qualified electrician. You must book and pay for power before the market – it cannot be allocated on the day.
• Chairs – Please bring your own chair if required.
• Promotion of individual stallholders – Markit + BakeSale organisers try to include as many designers as possible in the promotional campaign but cannot guarantee the inclusion of every individual (this includes our social media campaign).

PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
• $10 million Public Liability Insurance is compulsory for all stall holders. If you have your own cover, you must provide a Certificate of Currency for public liability insurance, minimum $10 million for conducting of business outside of normal premises. 
• If you do not currently possess public liability insurance, you are required to purchase Day Cover provided by Markit + BakeSale at an additional cost of $50.00 per stall being for the day of the event only. 

CANCELLATIONS
• Cancellation more than 30 days prior to the event will incur a 25% charge.
• Cancellation less than 30 days before the event will incur a 50% charge unless the stand can be filled, in which case a 25% fee will be charged.
