Hi, my department is doing a expo for the first time and I was wondering if any of you'll have experience and can give some advice on planning and how much to charge a vender for a spot.

My company has been doing an expo for almost 20 years. The only "vendors" are the food suppliers (we get a small cut) and the fire company. We also have food back at the station for our company, stand-bys, and invited companies.
As for planning, start as soon as you can. Determine what you need. Bathroom facilities, food, electric, etc. If I can find it, I will post on here the timeline that I used last year when I was chairman. Another thing is to start small. Do not invite every company in the area for the first one.
If you are going to charge a vendor, I would recommend having the company vote on it.
