Please Note -  Banner ads will be added when vending for that current year opens and will remain on the site until the last day of the current year.  Sponsor and vendor ads appear randomly (but weighted by amount of sponsorship) on the top right corner of our site.  

Sponsors page remains ordered by the first come first serve karma policy started year one to honor those that took a chance on us before we grew in size.  If a sponsor chooses to not renew their sponsorship, they lose their placement on that list.  

Vendors are rated on senority.  
Senority points are calculated in the following way: Vendors earn a score between 1 to 6 each year they participate.  This either moves you up or down the seniority list for events in the future, which means the more you participate the more likely you will make the list for next year.  

  • 1 point for your paid attendance
  • 1 point for your paid sponsorship
  • 1 point for a MOC (or more) displayed (you must register this MOC on the MOC page for it to count).  
  • 1 point vending for the full hours (10-3) on Sat or Sun, a half a point for each day.  
  • 1 point for being the first vendor having unique merchandise (decided by staff)
  • 1 point for offering other support, examples - sizable advertising, large effort of volunteering your time or helping us in other ways (also decided by staff)

Will you put my flyer in the Brickfête event bag?

Yes, at our discretion.  

AFOL Events and some LEGO related organizations are allowed to supply LEGO relevant flyers for the event bag.  We recommend a minimum of 300 for the event bags and thousand for the public day.  They need to be delivered to us at your own expense one month prior to the event to be eligible to be added to our event bag by the Brickfête Team.  However, providing flyers will not get you any sponsor or vendor rewards. 

If approved and you prefer to bring your flyers with you, or mailed items do not arrive in time we will save them for you to be stacked, in a specified location determined by the Brickfete Team.  It is your responsibility to keep the single stack looking presentable and replenished over the weekend. 

LUG table is available for all LUGs (or AFOL events) to share for their related promotional material.  Feel free to use that space to promote your LUG.  As well, there is sponsors table (this is not for personal ads unless you are an official sponsor).  Only paid vendors are allowed to put any promotional items on any of their own tables No other advertising by others is allowed.  This rule will be enforced to keep it fair to all parties. 

AFOL and public attendees please show respect to all our paying vendors & sponsors by not displaying ANY advertising (this means, no business cards, fliers, promotions, qrcodes, etc).  We do not want to clutter MOC tables with promotions, it is misleading to the public, it is unfair to those that have paid for the privileged and makes us look like a trade show instead of a display.  Any unapproved advertising will be throw away by staff.
