Who may use the vendor tables on the second floor of the Benson Center?
The vendor tables are open to members of the Wake Forest community such as student organizations and university departments, and members of the general public such as retail vendors, non-profit groups, job recruiters, and anyone else wishing to distribute information to our students. All off-campus companies and organizations must obtain prior approval by calling the Benson Administrative office at 336-758-4869 before reserving a vendor table.
What are the fees for use of the vendor tables?
Student Organizations chartered through the office of Student Development or sponsored by the Department of Entrepreneurship may reserve the vendor tables at no charge. University departments may also reserve the tables at no charge. All others must pay a table rental fee of $60 per table per day.
How does my organization/company reserve a vendor table?
Submit the Vendor Table Request Form (found here) to the Benson Administrative Office. Vendor Table requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
What if my organization/company wants to sell items or services at the vendor tables?
After receiving confirmation of a vendor table reservation, chartered student organizations or university-sponsored student entrepreneurs may sell goods or services without prior clearance from the Benson Administrative office. Chartered student groups wishing to accept Deacon Dollars must apply for that program by submitting the Deacon Dollar usage form found here (fees apply). All other organizations/companies wishing to sell merchandise or accept payments of any kind in the Benson Center must obtain approval from the Benson Administrative office (commissions apply, please refer to sample contract found here). Non-sponsored students wishing to conduct retail sales, whether the proceeds will be donated to charity or not, must have prior approval and sign a contract. Please contact Amy Mohan for more information.
What is the size of the vendor tables? How many are available to be reserved? Are there any limits on how many may be reserved?
Each table is a standard six feet in length. There are three tables available on a first come, first-served basis. There is no limit on how many tables may be reserved. Most retail vendors require at least two tables.
