This floor plan is a rough draft. Slight changes may be made. Example: Try room’s location may be moved or another one added. If you fix your location, your stall will be located at the same place but stall numbers might change once floor plan is finalized. Plan is not according to scale.

Additional Terms and Conditions

  1. Regarding Booking your Stall
    1. Confirmed bookings are upon payment.
    2. Location can be chosen once the Rs 1000 payment is made on top of the stall payment.
    3. Location is dependent on your category.
    4. Locations for each category are marked on the floor plan. If your category is not listed, your stall can be placed at any available location.
    5. Locations will be booked according to payment sequence.
    6. If you sell more than one product type under your brand, we will place you in the category most suited to your products. You can still sell those products on your stall.

    11. Prices are fixed and same for everyone. Please do not embarrass us and yourself by asking for a further discount.
    12. Although we try to limit the number of stalls per category, our first priority is to cover our costs. So there will be at least 15-20 stalls in each category. We cannot promise no competition.
    13. We reserve the right to book stalls and may refuse entry.
    14. Food area is outside the marquee. There will be no discussion on this. A food court type environment needs space.
    15. Stall structures are put up by labourers and sizes can vary slightly. Hence the stall sizes mentioned are approximate.
  2. Regarding Promotion of Event
    1. Our marketing budget is in the six figures. We aim to drive as much traffic as possible but cannot guarantee in case of unforeseen security conditions in Karachi.
    2. Despite good traffic, we cannot guarantee sales. That depends on your product, pricing and customer service.
    3. Marketing budget includes: Social media promotion and offline promotion via posters and flyers.
    4. There will be no billboards or other TV/Radio/Newspaper advertisements.
    5. For branding purposes only the official flyers and posters will be used.
    6. There will only be one official event page. No individual event pages are allowed.
  3. Regarding Training and Workshops
    1. An FB group will be made for the vendors.
    2. Group is for healthy discussions regarding marketing, promotion, stall décor, customer service, etc.
    3. Any issues need to be inboxed. Negativity and hostile behavior will not be tolerated on the group. Being on the group is a privilege, not a right and can be revoked. Please do not try to instigate other vendors. Such activity will lead to immediate disqualification from the stall without a refund.
  4. Regarding the day of the event
    1. No standees will be allowed at the event.
    2. A panaflex strip with your business name and stall number will run across the top of your stall (marquee area) and in front of your table (food area). You do not need to get additional banners with your business name.
    3. An official photographer will be present for the event. But photographs of your stall cannot be guaranteed. Please take your own photos.
    4. Hall will open at 9am. All your inventory and decoration should be inside the hall by 11am. Food items can be brought by 12am. Set up will take 4 to 5 hours so take this into account.

    6. Event ends at 9pm. Please start wrapping up at 9, not before that.
    7. If you want electrical sockets, we need to be informed in advance and will need extensions (these may be damaged so please do not give anything you are too attached to).
    8. Up to 2 chairs and 1 table can be provided in the marquee area. It is your responsibility to inform us beforehand. Otherwise we will assume you are bringing your own décor.
    9. You can bring any furniture items, shelving, background, etc. to decorate your stall. We recommend you do so, so your stall looks unique. Just make sure to stay within your allotted space.
    10. Make arrangements for your own transport. Everyone will have their own inventory to bring so will not have space for anyone else. Ask a relative or order a radio cab.
