  • Each additional 6' feet of table is $10.
  • Maximum 18' feet of table space per each coral vendor.
  • A donation of one $20 certificate is required. The certificate will be raffled to attendees and will be redeemed at your table.
  • Pre-sale section is available on our website.

Reasons to be a vendor for our event:

  • Last year we almost doubled our attendance and plan to do even better this year.
  • The total for last year's giveaways and prizes totaled over $11,500.  There no other local swaps or regional swaps that can match or exceed what we offer in prizes & giveaways!  This attracts customers for you and you could win something as well!
  • Our event has very low overhead (table & room rates).
  • Early Friday setup and a very helpful crew to help you setup or takedown.
  • We work with any coral vendor with special requirements or space requests.  
We will be heavily promoting this event through forums, websites and direct email.  

We are full for this event!  

Please contact us at the below email address and we will add you to our next event's invite list.
