We at Between the Veils have been watching the development of the COVID-19 Omicron strain closely, and know that our community have been too. We take the safety of our community very seriously, and have listened to the voices of those speaking up about the dangers of holding an in-person event right now. Due to the high risk of community spread, we have had to make the difficult decision to change the dates of our 2022 Gathering Paths conference which will now be held over the weekend of August 5th-8th, 2022.
Things to know about vending at our Conference
The vendor room will be hosted on the first floor of the hotel in the ballrooms right next to registration and the stairway to the main presentations.
The vendor room will open to vendors Friday morning. We expect to open the vendor room to the public at 2pm on Friday. The hours for the vendor room will be 10am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday and on Monday the vendor room will be open at 8am, but close to the public at 2pm. You will have the rest of the day to pack up your spaces. You will be provided one table about 6x2 feet. You are free to bring in your own decorations and equipment, but you cannot hang things on the walls of the hotel.
Since this is our first year, we expect between 500-1,000 guests. Because this event will be taking place during Covid, we are requiring all our attendees, presenters, and vendors to show proof of vaccination.
Also, we ask that any products or imagery that could be cultural appropriation not be used during this event. This includes sage that was not ethically sourced, dream catchers, arrowheads, voodoo dolls, etc. If you are part of the culture that these products come from or you have permission to sell these products from that culture please let us know in the open field below. We will be vetting our vendors and do not want to deny anyone because of a misunderstanding. We will be bringing any concerns to our BIPOC advisory committee for review.
