Professional Pricing for Vendor Space Rentals Now Available | Texas Trade Days, LLC

Our rental spaces are now professionally priced to provide you with more accurate rates, transparency and clarity when booking your market dates with us!

We used our professional expertise to develop a vendor space pricing standard that can be used throughout the event industry to help you more clearly understand what you are paying when you choose to book your events, and we’re starting with ourselves!

We are proud to be the leading example in the Texas event industry by becoming possibly the first event services company to implement professional methods commonly used in other professional industries.

Our new professional pricing is just the first step in our professional development journey we’re bringing to you, our beloved small business owners! Take a look through our Q&As below to see how it works!

Why do I see “sq ft” listed?

“Sq ft” is short for square foot/feet. As you grow your business and start looking for storefront space, you’ll usually be looking at price per square foot. It’s a more precise and flexible way of pricing used by professionals when determining sales price and value.

What happened to the “10×10” spaces?

They’re still there! They’re now also listed by the square foot. Examples:

  • 6 ft x 5 ft = 30 sq ft (table space)
  • 10 ft x 10 ft = 100 sq ft (booth space)
  • 20 ft x 10 ft = 200 sq ft

Why do your ads show a small number for prices?

This gives you more clarity when selecting your space size and the location of your spaces. The total amount is still shown on the application, now also in their specified square foot increments.

Why did you switch?

Pricing is a science and an art. The event industry lacks a standard way to price vendor space rentals, so many organizers are left attempting to find the market rate (the rate at which you commonly pay). Many times, vendors pay too much money and organizers may lose too much money. This method creates balance which we are all desperately seeking in our industry.

How do I sign up for markets?

You’ll sign up for our markets just as you would normally. The pricing is for 1 space at its location as usual. We’re just providing you with more clarity before you book with us!

Vendor Payments We Accept | Texas Trade Days, LLC

We accept a variety of payment types for your space rentals at our markets securely through PayPal. A PayPal account is not required either!

We do strongly recommend creating a PayPal account so you can easily keep records of your payment receipts, as well as pull important reports when needed for your business reports and tax filings.

Payments We Accept:

As a verified merchant, PayPal allows us to accept the following as payments for our services.

  • VISA
  • MasterCard
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • PayPal Financing
  • PayPal Credit Cards

Payment Forms Not Accepted:

We do not accept the following types of payments.

  • Checks
  • Cashier’s Checks
  • Money Orders
  • Manual Credit Card Payments
  • Cash

We do not accept these types of payments in-person or by mail. These details are found in our Vendor Policy and Agreement attached to our Vendor Application.

Applications and Payments by Mail:

We automatically refuse applications and payments sent to us by mail. If you receive returned mail, please submit your application and payment online to be considered for space rental. These details are also found in our Vendor Policy and Agreement attached to the Vendor Application.

Will You Ever Accept Mail-ins?

In the event of a massive internet system crash that halts online activities, we will switch to a manual process. We provide our mailing address for you to keep in your records for such cases.

What If I’m Not Good with Computers?

We understand. However, we only accept verified and secure applications and payments. We recommend asking help from a family member or a friend, or visiting your local library for assistance.

What is PayPal Financing?

We allow PayPal to offer financing to you for payments of $99 or more on our checkout page. Their terms and conditions apply, and we don’t have any control over who is approved or denied financing through PayPal.

If you are interested in PayPal Financing for your space rentals, complete our online vendor application with the dates you wish to attend. Once you are on the PayPal checkout page, you’ll be able to click on their financing promotional option to proceed.

NOTE: Just like eChecks, your application processing may be delayed until we receive your posted payment. Be sure you timely respond to any emails sent by PayPal to reduce delays.

Cleveland Trade Days is Canceled

I regret to inform you that Cleveland Trade Days on September 7, 2019 and November 2, 2019 have been canceled until further notice. We do not have any other dates scheduled.

A sign permit issue came up that I was unaware of at the time of contract and wasn’t notified after the adoption of the June 2019 amendment which also covers special events at the Stancil Expo Center that places a burden on all vendor businesses who participate in our events.

I apologize for not asking about these permits prior to signing our rental contracts. It is common practice at other fairgrounds that the use of on-property signs is allowed by ordinance. It’s very unfortunate this is not the case here and I am deeply apologetic. In the meantime, the planning department is seeking clarification before we continue business.

Vendors:

Vendors have been issued full refunds of space rental payments. Please check your email accounts for a service@paypal.com email with your refund instructions. You were also sent “IMPORTANT” emails directly from me as well. I’m deeply sorry for this, but I do not believe you should have to conform your signage strict to the code and pay for permits to display them at our authorized special events on a property designated for such activities, or be at risk of fines or more according to the judgement of visiting inspectors. I will make announcements if new and better information is obtained about this issue.

Thank all of you again for your support.

My deepest apologies,
