Apply to be a Fix-It Fair Exhibitor or Presenter

The City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) invites applications for exhibitors and presenters for the 2016-2017 Fix-It Fair season.

Fix-It Fairs are free events where neighbors come together to learn simple and effective ways to save money and stay healthy at home during winter and beyond. Past topics include home repairs and maintenance, resource conservation, active and healthy lifestyles, and money saving tips.

BPS does not endorse specific organizations, products or services that are present at Fix-It Fairs. Our mission at the Fix-It Fair is to connect people with resources that encourage healthful and sustainable choices that foster a more sustainable community. There is no cost to be an exhibitor or presenter.

Exhibitor and workshop space at Fix-It Fairs is limited, and BPS reserves the right to provide exhibit and classroom space to organizations that we, in our sole discretion, deem to best match our mission. The Fix-It Fairs are not vendor fairs or trade shows. Private companies seeking solely to promote a service or product for a profit will not be considered.

Fix-It Fair Exhibitor/Workshop Application

I am interested in attending the following Fairs.

Exhibitors can expect to staff the fairs from 8:30am to 3pm. This includes set-up and break-down.

Standard exhibit space is a 6-foot table with two chairs. Please indicate the number of tables you will need (or if you are workshop-only).

I am interested in offering a workshop(s).

Workshops are 45 minutes long and offered in concurrent sessions from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Please provide a title and brief description for each individual workshop you would like to offer, and note if you are willing to offer it more than once per fair. Please also indicate if the workshop is available in Spanish. If interested in leading more than two different workshops, please email Fix-It Fair.

Special requests

We will do our best to fulfill any specific requests. (i.e. electric outlet at exhibit, storage area at table, workshop at a specific time, etc.) NOTE: Tables and chairs are provided. For workshops a laptop, projector and wireless presenter is provided in each classroom.

Deadline to submit application is Friday September 23, 2016.

Questions? Please email Fix-It Fair.
