Unlike other camp and education shows, the Main Line Early Childhood Education Fair will connect you with targeted family audiences that are actively searching options for their young children (ages 6 and under). The intensive advertising and promotional campaign through Main Line Parent ensures a quality parent audience is in attendance. All families receive a reminder email prior to the event and a welcome bag with exhibitor information at the entrance.

When and where the Fairs being held?
The Main Line Early Childhood Education Fairs will be held from 1:30 – 3:30 PM in Wayne on Saturday, January 26, 2013 and in Wynnewood on Sunday January 26, 2013. Our Lady of Assumption School’s Gymnasium in Wayne and Main Line Reform Temple’s Circle Room in Wynnewood will be our event venues.

How many table exhibitors will there be?
There are approximately 20 exhibitor spots available at each Fair.

Who can apply to be a exhibitor?
We are specifically looking for exhibitors with programs for children under 6:

  • Schools, Preschools, Camps
  • Educational Enrichment Programs (art, music, sports, tutoring, etc.)
  • Programs for families with special needs as well as gifted children who are looking for additional academic enrichment
  • Childcare and nanny or babysitter services

Why You Should Exhibit

  • Meet new parents and develop quality leads.
  • Develop a personal and direct relationship with prospective families.
  • Get immediate feedback on what families want.
  • Raise your profile and build awareness through social media promotion.
  • Learn from and network with other schools and local organizations.

Why you should donate a week of camp to the raffle

Main Line Parent will use our giveaway to promote your program and the event with a sponsored post on MainLineParent.com ($500 value). We will also send that article out via email to our community subscribers, and post it throughout our social media networks.

What is the vendor fee?
The 2013 fee is $350 for a 6′ round exhibitor table. If you would like to reserve a table at both fairs (Wayne & Wynnewood), the fee is $550.

When will I be notified?
A link with instructions will be sent in your acceptance email. After the deadline, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and applicants will be contacted if a space opens up.

Will you keep a waitlist?
We will maintain a waitlist of individuals who may be contacted to participate should we receive an exhibitor cancellation and if there is room. You will be notified of waitlist status when acceptances go out.

If accepted, what is your cancellation policy?
Refunds and credits are not given for seller cancellations. If a seller must cancel after paying the vendor fee, he/she must email Main Line Parent so that another exhibitor may be pulled from the waitlist. No-shows forfeit their right to participate in future shows.

How are spaces assigned?
Space assignments are at the sole discretion of Main Line Parent. Space assignments and detailed load in logistics will be sent out via email to confirmed exhibitors the week prior to the fairs.

What if there is severe weather?
If the Fairs are cancelled in its entirety by Main Line Parent due to severe or dangerous weather, a credit may be given (but is not guaranteed) for a future promotional event. Refunds will not be given. Severe weather includes heavy snow and ice, or any other weather condition that would jeopardize safety for you or our attendees.
