AfropolitanCities invites you to be vendor for our monthly series in your city as well as other cities. Please note that the monthly series has very limited space for vendors, hence vendor opportunities are not guaranteed.
Vendor applications must specify month and city. It is strongly advised you submit your vendor applications latest 3 weeks before the day of the event. Vendor application must be submitted online
Arrival Time & Setup
Vendors must arrive latest an hour before the start of the event for setup. Most Afropolitan Cities events are high traffic events hence vendors must complete setup before guests arrival to avoid disrupting the check-in process. Afropolitan Cities may cancel vendor arrangement if vendor arrives late in which case vendor may forfeit vendor benefits and fees.
The vendor packages only includes vendor space and not tables. Vendors must bring their own tables unless agreed otherwise.
Internet, Power & Other utilities
Internet access is not included in the vendor packages. Vendors must bring internet access unless agreed otherwise. Some venues sometimes make their internet accessible to vendors. If so, this will be communicated to all confirmed vendors a week before event.
If your equipment requires a connection to a power source, please bring a long extension cord as the venue will not provide you with one. You will need a 15’ standard cord.
Vendors are encouraged to bring lighting and other needed utilities. There is no guarantee the venues will have the needed utilities.
Customer Payment Options
Vendors are required to prepare for both cash and credit card payment options by customers as most customers do not always carry cash.
