ATTENTION VCCTN16 GENERAL PUBLIC ATTENDEES
July 27, 2016: VCC must change our policy regarding a fee to enter the events. The entry fee will still remain at $0 for everyone over the age of 18; however, we MUST (according to the FDA deeming regulations) have a sampling fee as free sampling will no longer be allowed. It has been determined that a $15 per person sampling fee is reasonable. The $15 fee will cover sampling all products at the event for BOTH DAYS for attendees during public hours (exhibitors and B2B participants will be covered by their event lanyards) – so you can attend both Saturday and Sunday public hours for a one time fee (since the products available will be the same each day). Each person must pay the fee prior to receiving their wristband at the door and entering.
You can pay the FDA required sampling fee online by CLICKING THIS TEXT for our next event (VCCTN16 – Chattanooga TN, Oct 22-23, 2016) – I recommend paying online PRIOR to the event so we can move the line along in a timely fashion. We will have a pre-paid line, and a “paying at the door” line.
As you all know, I personally do not want to charge a fee, but I must in order for the event to happen. We have not charged any fees for the past seven VCC events, and would continue that policy but for these regulations.
Thank you all for understanding and I look forward to seeing you in October!
