This year we will be running a bump in zone where you will be able to drive your car into our unloading area where we will have a team of helpful staff to bump you in and unpack your belongings from your vehicle. Once your belongings are unpacked you can then park your car in the designated parking bays and head inside to set up your stall. We hope this system will help the bump in process run a little smoother and stress free for everybody involved.
Stall holders must be on site 45 minutes before doors open and ready to trade at opening time. If you are not in the building by that time you will have to enter when the doors re-open to trade.
Stall holders must maintain a clean workspace and consider their neighbours when setting up. If there is a problem with your stall please see one of our committee members. We would much rather know about any issues on the day then to hear about them after the event.
Stall holders will be allowed to have 2 helpers per stall. This must be noted on your application form or in writing to the committee at least 2 weeks prior to the event. Any extra stall helpers will be required to purchase a ticket or make a donation at the front door upon entry.
We understand that the majority of our stall holders are mums with young families and that some of you may still be required to feed your children during the event. While you are more then welcome to bring your children to the Family Affair on Sunday we do ask that you make alternative arrangements for babies and children when attending our exclusive Saturday night shopping event. As this is advertised as a child free event, we feel it would be unfair to our customers if we were to bend the rules for our stall holders.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
We pride ourselves on supporting local businesses and not for profit services to showcase what products & services they have on offer for families in the Darwin community. All applications are considered carefully for our target audience. Our team will will be in touch within 2 weeks to advise you of the outcome of your application.

All stall holders are required to be covered for public liability insurance. All stallholders who do not provide their insurance documentation with your application will be charged an additional $5 to be covered under The Bump, Bub and Beyond Expo policy.

Once your application as been submitted you will be sent an invoice via PayPal invoicing, you will then have 72 hours to pay your invoice and secure your spot in the expo.
