FAQs for Organizations exhibiting at the Fall City Community Information Event

What sort of space is available?
Participating organizations will be limited to a maximum of a 10’x10’ space and smaller exhibit footprints (such as 8’x8’) are encouraged. Your flexibility is appreciated as the entire library shall be used for exhibit space and there are many asymmetrical spaces.

What other concerns should we be aware of?

  • The event space will potentially be very noisy as the overall space is small.
  • Available space is limited and organizations will be spread throughout the entire library, thus some exhibitors may be located amidst stacks of books, along walls or back-to back with other exhibitors.
  • You may not use a PA system or amplify audio beyond the max. volume of a normal laptop, PC or projector.
  • Liquids (other than drinking water), fans, fire, smoke or aromatics may not be used in your display.

What should we bring?
There are no formal requirements but the FCCA and Library staff recommend:

  1. One or more persons to set up and “work” in your area for the duration of the event.
  2. A sign, display, banner or similar materials that identify your organization or space.
  3. A table or similar surface to display brochures or other materials.
  4. One chair (have on hand as a backup).
  5. A power cord at least 20 feet long (if power is required).
  6. Something of interest or something for distribution to all ages. Visitors always like handouts.

What is the recommended attire?
This is a casual, indoor event and casual attire such as jeans and t-shirts are welcome. Community residents would appreciate if you wore a name tag or identifying article representing your organization, but this is not required.

When can we set-up or load in?
You may begin setting up or loading in at 9:30am and continue until the event begins at 11am. The library does not open on Sat. until 10am.

When can we load out?
Load out may begin at 2pm when the event softly ends, but exhibitors—at their discretion—may remain set up until 3pm if desired. Likewise, if traffic falls off early, exhibitors may leave early. This is supposed to be casual.

I have more questions. Who may I contact?
