Are you interested in being a part of our fantastic Fall show?
Rock Your Bump started back in 2011 as the premier shopping event for new and expectant moms and has continued to be a show that people look forward to attending! This is the 14th Rock Your Bump show and it will be held at The Black Knight Inn on November 3rd, 2018. Because of the intimate setting we will be limiting each category accordingly. Our primary basis for acceptance in the show is the quality, originality and craftsmanship of the work to be sold or a service that fits into a pregnancy or baby category. Acceptance will also be based on booth display and product packaging. The professionalism of the booth display is a major consideration in our applicant selection and is also a determination in booth placement within the show.
What We Offer:
Our goal for this show is to make the moms and moms-to-be feel like they had a nice time out and got to see some unique products and services you don’t see everywhere. For our Fall show we will have 125 swag bags in total. These will be given out to ticket holders only. We have 2 types of ticket. They both give you early admittance to the show so you an shop first, you get a swag bag (No waiting in line!), some vendors have special for the first hour and you are entered into a special draw! The tickets will get the customer early entry from 10am – 11am and they will get a guaranteed swag bag (there will be 100 “regular” swag bags). We will also have 25 “VIP” swag bags for those who want super special swag bags with extra goodies in them!
We will be doing hourly door prizes all day long as they are a huge draw to the show, in addition to a grand prize draw at the end of the day. You will be required to donate a door prize to be used for these giveaways or other giveaways related to the show. Please note that this door prize is to be provided to organizers before the show.
Each exhibitor has the opportunity to add tangible items to our 125 swag bags, along with your business card. For the VIP swag bags (25), we’d love something extra special for them if you have something, if not, the regular items you have will be great! We will not accept only paper products as swag. Be creative!
Rock Your Bump is dedicated to showcasing businesses that are local to Central Alberta. Our research has shown that people like to shop local and support local businesses. They also love unique items that cannot be found “everywhere”. Mothers represent the most powerful consumers in Canada today, controlling the majority of the household spending. By being a part of Rock Your Bump, you will be having face to face interaction with these women! Over 90% of those who attend our show identify as female, with the majority being between the ages of 25 and 34 (65%). 90% of attendees are expecting and/or have children. For our 14th show we are expecting between 500-600 adults thru the doors.
Your company could be one of the lucky ones to be showcased at our Fall show!
Please note our show is a juried show. This means we look over every application we get and choose who we think the public would like to see at our show. We look at what you sell (since we limit categories) and how you display items. Our show has vendors and customers coming back show after show as they know we strive to have unique vendors at our show. We even travel around Alberta looking for unique vendors! All vendors must offer services or sell items that are aimed at pregnant women, babies and little ones. We do like to have a few vendors where mom can buy herself a little something or a gift for someone – so jewelry or home decor are acceptable as well. We are not accepting any new MLM or direct sales vendors.
Once we go over applications, we will let you know if you are accepted or not. We try to get back to everyone within 2 weeks of receiving the application. Payment will be due within 48 hours.
