You will need to wear the "The Dark Style Fair - Team" group to enter the venue and setup.
The booths are not assigned. First come, first served.
You can claim your booth at the venue and do your setup ONLY when you are ready to sell, i.e. with your item set for sale (ad excluded).
**EMPTY CLAIMED BOOTHS OR SEMI-COMPLETED BOOTHS WILL BE RETURNED IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT NOTICE.
Old releases are accepted in your booth as long as your new product is clearly marked with the event alpha logo and you stay under your prim limit. The old releases must fit with the event theme or they will be returned without notice.
Nothing can be placed outside your booth.
Remove all scripts from decorations.
No particles, spam or popup allowed.
Drop your logo on the logo frame above your booth. The frames are shared with the team group, so you will be able to edit them.
Sponsors get 300 prims. Regulars get 100 prims.
Don't forget to send your blogger copies for coverage, we have a dedicated team of bloggers who will showcase your product in the best possible light. You can either send your product via group notice, or use the event blogger boards at the FFE Headquarters (SLurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/AMERICAN%20BAZAAR/53/113/35). You will find the instructions displayed in the available blogger boards.
Sponsors are always chosen by the flair for events owner. You can ask a designer manager to be listed as a potential sponsor, but the final decision is taken by the FFE CEO. You may send a notecard to Taylalouise Resident. If you are selected for a round, it doesn't mean you will be listed as a sponsor every time. Thank you for your understanding.
If you want to collaborate with another designer for your product, a request for approval must be sent to a designer manager before the setup begins.
If your new product or your booth decoration does not reflect the quality we are looking for, we will ask you to modify it or you may be ejected from the starting round, but a refund will be issued.
Your new product can be put up for sale at your mainstore and marketplace only once the event is over. If we see your new product in your mainstore or at another event while the event is still running, your item will be returned without notice, and you will not be refunded. However, you can have a demo of your new product in your store if you want.
We will be instituting a quality control policy (for monthlies event only). Each store will be re-evaluated to make sure they fit the event theme and are up to our quality standard. Being accepted in one month does not guarantee continued acceptance. If you are ejected after a round, you can re-apply after three months via the website.
You must rez the event poster inside your mainstore (do not delete the scripts inside). If you don’t have a mainstore, create a profile pick at the event location.
You must accept the event group and read the notices carefully.
You are not permitted to advertise any non-FFE events in your booth including logos, posters, signs, notecards, or landmarks. Landmark givers may only direct customers to your mainstore.
It is forbidden to use any copyrighted logos, patterns, or style on your items. We will not accept items featuring branded names or logos such as Chanel, adidas, etc. or copyrighted items such as Barbie, Disney, etc. Such items will be returned without notice.
We will not tolerate racism, sexism, or homophobia of any kind. Any designer who will not respect that will be ejected from the event.
There is no refund if you drop the event. No exception.
