UNH Makers Expo Vendor FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to have access to an electrical outlet at my table/booth?

There is no electrical outlet access at tables. A limited number of booths will have access to electrical outlets and you can register for a booth with electricity on a first-come, first-served basis through the vendor registration process.

I'd like to share my table with another vendor, is that possible?

Yes. As long as all vendors are UNH Students, Faculty or Staff. Tables can have up to 2 registered vendors, and booths can have up to 3 registered vendors. You will need to have the names and UNH email addresses of all of your participants available when you register.

I don't have a product to sell on site, but I would like to register people for a service or home visit later. Can I register?

No. All vendors must sell tangible products, or provide a service on site. For example: face painting, henna hands, or massages would all be acceptable services. If you are unsure about these qualifications, email makers.expo@unh.edu prior to registering.

I don't have a product to sell on site, but I'd like to have a table of information about a UNH Office or Department. Can I register?

No. All vendors must sell tangible products or provide a service on site.

My recognized UNH student organization would like to have a table at the UNH Makers Expo, can we register?

Yes. However, all products must still be made by UNH students, faculty or staff and if registering as a student organization, all proceeds earned must be going to your student org. and not an individual. Please follow student organization finance policies for money collection.

My UNH Department would like to have a booth at the UNH Makers Expo, can we register?

Yes. However, all products must still be made by UNH students, faculty or staff and if registering as a department, all proceeds earned must go to the department and not an individual. This would be a great opportunity for a department to engage students in making "product" as a part of curriculum - art, plants, baked goods; What are your classes making?

I'm an alumni of UNH, I'd like a table! Can I register?

We are happy to hear that you are interested in engaging with your alma mater! Unfortunately we are expecting significant demand for space and are therefore limiting registration to CURRENT UNH Students and Employees.

I am a past employee/faculty member at UNH. Can I register?

We are happy to hear that you are interested in staying enaged with the campus! Unfortunately we are expecting significant demand for space and are therefore limiting registration to current UNH Students and Employees.

My partner/family member/friend is a UNH student/employee but I am not, can I register to sell my goods?

If the current UNH student, faculty, staff person is currently, actively, and substantially involved in the production of the products, they are eligible to register as a vendor. If you, as a non-UNH person are making the product and the UNH person is, for example, just doing your finances/books, neither of you qualifies to participate as a vendor.

What products can I sell?

Did you make it? You can sell it! Knitting, candles, paintings, pottery, jewelry, wood craft. doo dads, trinkts, stuff...see where we are going with this? 

I've created a CD with my musical group/I've written a book, can I sell these items at the expo?

Yes! As long as you made the music or written the book, you can sell it. 

What can't I sell?

All products must be substantially made by the seller. That means, if you purchased some dish towels and did your hand embroidery on them, you can sell them. But if you bought knitted scarves from someone else to re-sell, you won't be eligible to sell them at the UNH Makers Expo.

Prohibited items include alcohol or tobacco products, drug paraphernalia or anything promoting alchohol, tobacco or drug use; anything the Memorial Union deems inappropriate for the student market; anything with unauthorized use of the UNH logos or wordmarks.

Why does the vendor registration site say "ticket type"?

We are registering vendors throught the MUB Ticket Office software to provide a safe and secure registration process. It can be confusing. Just ignore the "ticket" and imagine it says "registration".  More registration information can be found here.

What is the admission cost to attend the Makers Expo?

The Makers Expo is free and open to the public. There are no tickets required for browsing and shopping.
