Vendors FAQ's

How much does it cost to be a vendor?

We have a range of vendor spots based on your display requirements:

1. Table Only - 450 AED
A spot designed for vendors who wish to display accessories or small items on a table only. A table will be provided by UMC team for vendors to use at the location. No rails are permitted for this booking type.

2. Single Spot - 550 AED
This spot is suitable for vendors who require space for two rails alongside a table. Vendor must provide their own rails, table and chair provided by UMC. You are also permitted to expand your setup to include a maximum of three rails if you do not require a table.

3. Double Spot - 750 AED
This spot is suitable for vendors who require space for a maximum of six rails alongside a table. Vendor must provide their own rails, table and chair provided by UMC.

4. Multiple Spot - 850 AED
This spot is suitable for vendors who require space for 8-10 rails maximum. Vendor must provide their own rails. No table will be provided at this spot.

Please note that ALL VENDORS must ensure that their display is kept tidy and free of clutter or packaging. All packaging should be removed or stored out of site without causing any hazards to guests or the venue. The presentation of your business directly reflects on our organisation and any rubbish left at the venue will be cleaned at the vendors expense if disregarded and left behind. Please ensure you bring a tablecloth to cover your table at the set up.

What is provided by UMC at each venue?

At most venues a table for you to display your items will be provided and one chair per booking.

Rails are not provided for any Single, Double or Multi Rail Spots. Vendors need to bring their own rails for these bookings.

Occasionally we cannot provide tables/chairs for vendors. All vendors will be informed in advance if they need to bring their own table / chair should that be the case.

Please check each listing when booking for specific details as equipment provided by us will be mentioned.

What do we need to bring?

All tables should be covered with a table cloth or sheet to ensure a neat presentation by all vendors at all events. Please ensure you bring suitable table covers with you otherwise you may not be permitted to display your items.  

If you have booked a Single, Double or Multi Rail Spot, vendors will need to bring their own rails.

Additionally you can bring a roll-up banner or display materials to advertise your brand. 

What size are the tables provided?

The table size for Urban Market Concept at Radisson RED is 183cm x 40cm x 75cm. 

Other locations will have different table sizes. Please always double check the description shown when booking spots for the exact setup information. 

What time do we setup before the event?

Setup usually opens 3 hours ahead of the opening event time but this will be dependent on the location. All vendors must arrive at the venue a minimum of 1 hour ahead of the opening time to complete setup. If you do not, your spot will be canceled and no refund will be given. 

Please check the event description for exact setup information.

What happens if I need to cancel my booking?

We understand that something things happen and you need to cancel your booking. If you cancel 72 hours/3-days or more, ahead of the event date, we will transfer your booking to another event.

If you cancel less than 72 hours/3-days prior to the event date, you will not receive a refund or be able to transfer you booking.
