Worlds 2016 Vendor Information

 

The UCWDC would like to invite you to participate as a vendor at the 2016 Country Dance World Championships. This year’s event will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee from January 4th, 2016 through January 10th. We’re expecting another memorable event this year, and we’re looking to partner with several outstanding vendors to bring quality merchandise and services to our guests. 

While it is always difficult to predict how many people will attend, we’ve had between 1,000 and 1,200 attendees in recent years. Our customers come from 20 or more different countries, making the event truly international and exciting.

We are still at work finalizing facilities space with the hotel for our vendor area. We plan to locate our vendors in an open area (the Presidential Lobby) that will not be access-restricted to only our Worlds customers. Anyone on-site at Opryland will be able to easily visit and purchase merchandise and services in the Worlds vendor lobby. Also, we have restructured our pricing strategy to more evenly share the risk with our vendors.

While it is always difficult to predict how many people will attend, we’ve had between 1,200 and 1,400 attendees in recent years. Our customers will come from 20 or more different countries, making the event truly international and exciting.

 

We have good news about our facilities at the hotel. Unlike our arrangement the last time Worlds was held at this hotel (2012), we will locate our vendors in the foyer area outside the main competition room and the space will not be access-restricted to Worlds customers only. Anyone on-site at the Coronado Springs Resort will be able to easily visit and purchase merchandise and services from our Worlds vendors. We also have good news about our vendor pricing arrangements. We have restructured our pricing strategy to more evenly share the risk with our vendors.
