Date, vendor options announced for Expo for women

Vendor booth space is now available for the 2011 Josephine Expo for women. This year’s Expo is set for Saturday, October 1. It again will be held at the Civic Arena in St. Joseph, Mo., 100 North 4th Street. Doors open to the public at 10:00 a.m., with the event wrapping up at 4:00 p.m. The Expo is an annual event sponsored by Josephine magazine, which is published monthly in the St. Joseph News-Press.

This is the seventh year for the popular women-oriented Expo. Vendor space options available include Sponsor (limited to a few), Exhibitor (booths on the main floor), Small Business (an option for businesses with five or fewer employees), Home-Based or Non-Profit (located in the Merchandise Mart, for vendors without a storefront or for non-profit organizations) and Food Court.

“We’ve already sold a number of booths, and with this being only June we anticipate the spaces will really fill up fast,” says Tami Clymer, coordinator for the Expo. “We recommend vendors contact us now if they are planning on being a part of the event.”
