Exclamation Chocolate Booth Invitation - Help Requested

I have been invited to be a vendor at a Spring Fling in about two months from now. The event planners have given me "exclusivity" - which means I will be the ONLY chocolate vendor in front of approximately 500+ people (mostly women) for the one day event. I've never done this before.

Here's what my preliminary plans are: Set up a beautiful display of chocolate products "for display only." I will take orders and share information and incentives about booking FUN chocolate tasting parties and have a raffle for a beautiful company gift basket give away. There will be catalogs and brochures on the table for anyone interested in the premium chocolate products or the opportunity to join my team. I will also have the company's fabulous dessert cookbook for display as well.

I'm thinking about also having some goody bags available with one or two wrapped truffles and a business card.

I would really appreciate any tips from anyone here who has ran a food booth at a large event/Expo before. Any insights would be most welcome. Thanks for sharing and I appreciate your help.

Dreaming in Chocolate,

Pink Pea

Pink Pea,

Have a raffle of a chocolate gift that is very decoratively done by you. You can get leads in that fashion. And/or - have a clipboard for a sign up for your newsletter; again a way to capture leads. Make sure you capture: name, phone # and email addresses!

The rest of what you are doing sounds great! Let us know how it goes! Exclusivity is pretty exciting!

I have not done one with Lindt yet, but I have with Tupperware. Definitely have one of the gift baskets set up for a raffle. I would have them fill out the raffle form completely (use a lead slip with name, address, phone, email, etc) and get a truffle, or better yet, sample the Thins. That would be a cheaper option for YOU and is an exclusive item. Truffles can get expensive after a while... The thins looks so pretty arranged on the tray. Good luck!
