Vanessa Wilson of Awakening Energy Events, coordinator of the Holistic Healing Fairs will never guarantee or imply sales. What we can promise you is a specific target market attending to learn about HOLISTIC & WELLNESS businesses. It is important to make a promise to your business, to consciously make every single contact count. Every single attendee has a specific interest and focus by choosing to attend our event. The Holistic Healing Fair’s are most importantly education focused, to help attendees on their journeys of finding their way, and sharing why and how your business/products can help them on their way.
The Holistic Healing Fairs are ALWAYS a free admission event, and we are now using eventbrite for tracking purposes only. This is to monitor and strategically choose which paid social media and digital ad, radio, marketing styles we will continue to use so we can follow what will be the most beneficial for each event, per Ontario city/specific demographic.
For each Holistic Fair, we do paid ads on Facebook, Instagram, network on each cities social media pages/groups, run like/share/tag draws in each event page, media releases to all news stations, depending on the market there will be radio ads, paid digital ads, etc.
We do our best to advertise the events for a positive, overflowing attendance which is of course our ultimate goal. However, with many moving factors, we can not and do not guarantee attendance at the Holistic Healing Fairs. Rest assured, those that do attend are your exact clientele. You are responsible for the connection made.
Your participation in advertising the event is essentially as important as the organizers paid ads and strategic marketing choices – if you have a local clientele that would love to attend an event like the Holistic Fair, sharing it is a win win. Although I cannot force vendors to share their attendance, every bit can help make our event successful and for those that do actively participate – it is deeply appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed.
I had previously paid for a 2020 event that was postponed due to the pandemic, what happened to my fee?
An email had been sent to all vendors in February 2022, allowing the option to transfer into any Holistic Healing Fair event across Ontario with a credit available to use until December 2024. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if you did not receive the email notification regarding the 2020/2021 booth fee transfers.
What do you mean by “health unit approval” in the application if I want to serve food/drink samples at my booth?
By googling the city health unit and contacting them, advise that you will be attending a Holistic Healing Fair as a vendor and would like to serve food/drink samples. They will inquire about the products you will be serving and will walk you through what the required safety steps are. Following approval, they will give you a green page that is a PASS of approval. If you are not required to have a green pass, and they say you are able to serve without their requirements please forward me the approval as soon as it is received to ensure your items can be served at the event.
Where do you recommend to get my own insurance?
I recommend and use Zensurance.com – you can get a free quote from them to start.
Will I be shown where I am within the layout after purchasing my booth?
The layout is not released to vendors, only to the event sponsors who have choice on where their booth will be located. I make changes up until the day prior to the event, including the morning of and that is why they are not released. When you arrive each table will be labelled with business names and I will be there ready to help you find your space. Please be reassured that I try to place everyone accordingly to what has been stated within the application for space requests.
