Why we charge an entry fee.
The reason why we charge people to come to our events is pretty simple. We need to charge an entry fee in order to cover the costs involved with putting our events on.
The costs involved with the events we run do vary from event to event but are primarily the same. Venue hire , staff costs, marketing materials, advertising, print distribution and equipment hire are all significant costs and the amount we charge traders to be at our events doesn’t cover them all.
It is really important to us that we keep our pitch fees affordable for the businesses that we work with. Many of the traders we work with are just starting out, with some of them trading for the first time at our events, so keeping their costs low are essential.
