Attending the show? Why not have a Vendor Booth or Farm Showcase?

Vendor Booths

see prices below, purchased via Online Registration

Being the largest show in Canada, the Alpaca Ontario Show is a great place to gain new customers. Last year's AO Spring Show had over 250 alpacas entered that were judged over the course of 2 days in 2 show rings. There were over 70 farms represented from not only Ontario, but all across Canada. We had a nice turnout of public from surrounding areas on both show days. The alpaca population in the country is growing and public interest and awareness are also increasing.
Participating vendors will be listed on the Alpaca Ontario website so all visitors know you are coming. The earlier you register, the longer you will be there. Also, don't forget to bring attention to your booth by participating in one or more of the advertising options listed below.

Vendor booths will be located in the exhibit hall. Two sizes of booth are available as follows.

Regular Booth - size 10' by 10' - $85.00 for Alpaca Ontario Members; $100.00 for non members
• one 8' table and chairs (vendors responsible for their own table coverings)

Large Booth - size 10' by 20' - $160.00 for Alpaca Ontario Members; $200.00 for non members
• two 8' tables and chairs (vendors responsible for their own table coverings)

Farm Showcase

$100 for AO Members, $200 for non-members, Sponsorship Benefit, purchased via Online Registration

A Farm Showcase is for those breeders who would like to put up a farm display in the vendor area. The showcase will be a 8' x 10' space.  A banner or rack plus a table with display is permitted.

Please Note: A banner and/or plastic display rack on a regular alpaca pen is allowed. However it is important for safety of alpacas and people to keep the aisle ways clear. Please limit equipment stored in walkways to a minimum. If the barn boss deems you are blocking the aisle, you will be requested to relocate your equipment. Signs hung on the pens are acceptable, but a table is not acceptable. Necessary manure handling equipment, a closed feed bucket, or small bale will be allowed so long as the aisle is easily passable. Any breeder with a farm display in a pen not designated as a Farm Showcase pen will be subject to a $200 fine.
