Vendor Sponsorship Opportunities

Wild Deadwood Reads is hosting year three of our awesome Book Fair and Legendary events June 6-8, 2019, and we want you to be part of the fun!

As a sponsoring vendor, you’ll reach up to 100 Authors plus Cover Models and Author’s Assistants – not to mention all the readers who’ll flock to our beautiful venue, Deadwood Mountain Grand. Again this year, there are no refunds if you have to cancel, sorry.

We have exciting opportunities for you whether you’re located in or near Deadwood or are heading to Deadwood for the event.

Our Sponsorship Packages include the highest visibility for your brand, and easy recognizability with our strategic repetition of your logo and name.

A Wild Deadwood Reads vendor table will place you in a high-visibility area in the Book Fair room right at the main entrance to the Event Center, near the escalator, elevator, and stairs which are the only entrances to the room. Vendor tables are in the waiting area where readers congregate prior to Breakfast With the Authors, and again after breakfast while they’re waiting for the Book Fair to officially open. You’ll have a fabulous opportunity to reach our attendees with one of only 8 exclusive vendor tables.

Our Memory Book will be handed to every reader and author at the book signing, and it’s the perfect place to advertise your business. These books have spaces where each of the Authors can autograph, which makes the Memory Book highly collectable. Your ad will be viewed long after the event ends.

* consider including a discount code in your ad to grab even more attention!

New for 2019: We’ve purchased dedicated security for the Event Center for Friday night, so you may move in any time after 7 PM

Schedule:

  • Move-in: Between 7 PM Friday and 8 AM Saturday
  • Sales: Authors and readers begin arriving at 8 AM Saturday, and you will want to be at your table prior to that time. The Book Fair ends at 3 PM, BUT you may want to keep your table open later to accommodate authors and readers who may not get a chance to visit your table during the Book Fair
  • Move-out: Be packed and out the door by 4:30 PM
