FAQ

Is EWE for women  only?
The  EWE is designed for women only; however, men may assist with the exhibitor  booths.  The workshops and social  cocktail event are open to women only.

Are children permitted to EWE?
EWE has been designed as day to celebrate you and your business (or soon to be business)!  It’s a day to allow complete focus on connecting, empowering, inspiring, and growing yourself and/or your business.  It’s often difficult to do those things if children are present.  Please leave the kiddos at home and enjoy a little “me” time for yourself.  🙂

Will multiple industries/categories be exhibiting?
The  goal of the EWE is to only allow one representative per industry.  This cannot be guaranteed at this time and  will be determined by the need to fill exhibitor space.   We do guarantee that only one like company will be  represented. (i.e. one Mary Kay, one UPS Store, or any other business that  offers the exact same product).  This is on a first come, first serve  basis.  Do NOT delay in signing up now  before it’s too late.  It is our  hope that as the expo grows we can guarantee only one representative per  industry.  To view our current exhibitor list, click HERE.

Will my competition be exhibiting?
It  is possible your competition could be exhibiting.  But, what everyone needs to keep in mind is  that although you offer the same product, you don’t necessarily offer the same  service…use EWE to showcase your attributes…it’s not just about the  products or services we offer.  There’s so much more to being a woman entrepreneur.   The expo is not about selling one’s wares.  It’s about coming  together to support one another, share success stories, maybe unsuccessful  stories, laugh, learn, and move forward in our lives and businesses.

We  do guarantee that only one like company will be represented. (i.e. one Mary Kay, one  UPS Store, or any other business that offers the exact same product)

Can exhibitors set up the day before?
We have been very fortunate in past years to set up between 3-5pm the day before, but this is never a guarantee from the venue.  Notification of this opportunity will be emailed to all exhibitors the week of the event or as soon as we know it’s possible.  Please note that for the safety and liability of all involved, children under ages of 18 are not permitted in the expo space during set-up.

What are the tear down instructions for exhibitors?
Booths must be removed from the venue by 6pm on the day of EWE.  We encourage you to keep your booth set up during the cocktail social as women will be around during this time.

Is the EWE environmentally friendly?
You betcha!  In an effort to protect our environment, this  is going to be green event.  Please help  us is in going paperless by registering and paying online (Register  Now!).  You will receive all correspondence via email  or phone.

We  will be promoting the event through word of mouth (please spread the word to  everyone you know), and online marketing.   There will be no paper brochures printed.

The  day of the event will feature cloth tablecloths, cloth napkins, no paper or  plastic utensils, no bottled water, and no silly giveaway gizmos that clutter  up your home and office.

What will take place during EWE?
You  will just have to wait and be surprised!   In addition to the workshops and exhibitor displays the day will be  interjected with surprises and fun!  You  won’t want to miss it!
