Are you interested in vending at the 16th International Herb Symposium?

Though the emphasis of the Symposium is primarily educational, the Herbal Emporium adds another wonderful dimension to the gathering. It’s an opportunity for herbal product businesses, herbalists, artisans, and authors to showcase and sell their products, wares, and books. 

Space is very limited – our indoor Emporium booths are already sold out, but we still have space available for outdoor booths. We hope you will join us!

Who is eligible to
be a vendor? 

Booths are only available to registered event attendees selling herbs and herbal-related products, handcrafted plant-related items, plant-based edibles, books, and sustainably produced textiles/clothing. All vendors and vendor helpers must be registered attendees for the Symposium, no exceptions.

How do I apply to be a vendor? 

To be considered for booth space, email . Include the words, “Vendor Application” in the subject line. Please describe the items you wish to sell and what type of booth space you wish to have (see choices below). If approved, you will then be sent an invitation with links to fill out the vendor application form and event registration.

Details for Vendors

The indoor Herbal Emporium is housed in a large dance studio with mirrored walls and high ceilings. There are a limited number of vendor spaces with walls behind them. If your display would work better with such a space, let us know ASAP and we’ll try to accommodate you on a first come first serve basis. Electrical power outlets are very limited in the Herbal Emporium and cannot be guaranteed based on booth placements. Wifi is available throughout the building.

  • All vendors and their assistants must be registered in full for the Symposium.
  • Nonprofit organizations are eligible for free booth spaces. Email  if interested.
  • OUTDOOR SPACES are $250.00. Only outdoor spaces are available, as the indoor booths are sold out. These spaces are approximately 15’x 15’ in a grassy common area outside of the Herbal Emporium. Inclement weather can be a factor with outdoor booths, so plan accordingly. You must provide your own tent, table and chairs for outdoor vending.
  • BOOTH SET-UP TIMESThursday evening (6:00 pm – 9:00 pm) or Friday morning (8:00 am -11:00 am) during registration. Table locations are pre-assigned and will be designated with signs. Please, no switching tables without authorization.
  • You will be completely responsible for the setup and cleanup of your booth area, including any boxes and packaging you brought, and you will be responsible for the booth during the Symposium. Please do not leave boxes, flyers, etc. that others would have to clean up after you. Trash and recycling will be set up to aid you in your clean-up process.
  • The indoor Herbal Emporium will be locked at night, but you will be completely responsible for your merchandise during the day. Generally, people are honest but there have been reports of missing items at gatherings. You may wish to bring a cloth to cover your products when you are not attending the booth. Never leave money unattended at your booth; it just invites problems. 

The International Herb Symposium assumes absolutely no responsibility for any lost or stolen items.
