Set Up and Show Hours
Passes for Vendors and Workers
One vehicle pass and one vendor pass will be issued to each Vendor. Additional worker passes are available at the Check-in entrance for $15 per person per day, with a maximum of 5 passes. Please provide the names of workers who will be arriving later to the host at the Check-in gate. They can pick up their passes by providing a photo ID when they arrive. Vendor passes will be recognized only at the Vendor Check-in for re-entry to the show if workers must leave and return during show hours.
Once your set up is complete, please park your vehicle in Vendor Parking across the street, to the West of the show entrance. There will also be additional parking 2 ½ blocks East on Kirby Avenue. Please do not leave your vehicle parked elsewhere because it will be towed at your expense without announcement. Purchasing a vendor space for the sole purpose of parking a vehicle will not be allowed. You will be asked to remove any vehicle not actively involved in the retail business of your space. Likewise, it is not acceptable to buy a space in the GoldMarket and use it to sell a Corvette that can be titled. The only Corvettes that can be located in the GoldMarket are ones that are being sold for parts. Corvettes for sale are sold in the GoldMine area, not the GoldMarket area.
Note: Vehicles will be allowed to enter for re-stocking from 5pm – 6pm each day.
Parts Pick-Up: Customers who need to use a vehicle to pick up their larger purchases will need to obtain a pass from a host at Vendor Check-In. A pass will be issued with the presentation of a proof of purchase. The vehicle will be expected to exit the area upon loading of purchases.
Installation of Products for Customers: Customers who have appointments for the installation of purchases must obtain a pass at Vendor Check-in. Proof of purchase must be presented before a pass will be issued. The pass will allow the Corvette to proceed to the identified vendor's space. Upon completion, the Corvette will be expected to exit the GoldMarket promptly through the Vendor Check-in gate.
Web Site and the Show Program: It is our intent to list every Vendor on our website on the "Vendors" page. In addition, the Show Program will list the name of every Vendor and their location at the Show. The deadline for being listed in the Show Program is March 31, 2013. Please register early.
Disabled persons will be allowed to use their own convenience vehicles. Those needing to rent a golf cart may do so at the Entrance Gate. They must present a state-issued handicapped parking permit and a photo ID.
Dogs: Dogs, with the exception of service dogs, are prohibited from the facility.
