I have read and agree to comply with these rules. Bay City Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture P.O. Box 768/201 7th Street, Bay City, TX 77404-0768 Phone: 979-245-8333 Fax: 979-245-1622 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.baycitychamber.org F…Y…I… VENDORSA $50 deposit will be required with your November and December booth reservation due to the overwhelming number of vendors who started leaving at noon. We do appreciate the vendors that stayed the entire time. It is required that all vendors stay throughout the entire show, which runs from 8:30am to 4pm and also required that vendors be set up on time. I am sure that you feel the same as we do, that your customers were discouraged from not only attending the show, but purchasing items from you during the time when everyone was packing and moving out. We have to admit that with so many people leaving, it gives the appearance that the show is over. Our main goal is a successful show, a profitable day for every one of our vendors. All vendors will also need to provide their own table and chairs. The $50 deposit will be refunded after 4pm at the December’s show. Any vendor not set up and ready at 8:30am will forfeit their booth and will lose their deposit. Thank you,Bay City Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture
