Please read our Reader Guidelines before you complete your registration.

SELECTION OF READERS:
The goal is to gather a highly vibrating, resonant group of psychics, healers, metaphysicians, and vendors who can work together in light and in harmony. If you have not read for My Guide to Insight before, you will be interviewed and tested. We reserve the right to reject any registration.

COST:
$50 deposit-
Refundable only if you come to the event prepared to do readings and stay for your scheduled time slot.
Do you trade, barter, exchange for booth deposit?
Regrettably, we cannot trade or exchange for booth fees. Please do not ask.

BOOTH FEE REFUNDS:
If I decide not to go, can I get a refund on my booth deposit? Regrettably, booth deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please do not ask for a refund if you no-show for your scheduled time slot.

REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT:
Please click the button at the bottom of this page to download the application. Once your application is submitted and approved, you will receive further notice of how you can pay for your deposit. Readers will be accepted on a 1st application submitted/approved and deposit paid-accepted basis.

We are sorry, but if your deposit is not submitted you will not be accepted and scheduled for this event.

AFTER REGISTRATION/BIOS/PICTURES
Do I have to do anything after I register? Yes! Please immediately send your ONE PARAGRAPH bio written in 3rd person, focused on telling the festival goer what you will be doing for them at the fair along with your picture attachment. Do not ask us to go to your website to get your photo or information. Please do not send a PDF.
Please proofread your bio and make sure it’s exactly the way you want it before you submit it. Less is definitely better. People read these bios before they attend, and know who they want to see based on what you do. If your bio is too long or “I” focused, they may not come see you.

EVENT DATE:
September 30, 2017 10am-9pm
As space permits we will allow you to select times that are workable for you within that timeframe in increments as follows:
10am-3:30pm
3:30pm-9pm

You may also opt to work the entire day with a one hour break or two 30 minute breaks of your choosing in advance.

SET UP TIMES:
Morning reader set up starts at 8:30am. Please plan to be completely finished setting up at quarter to the hour so that we may create a sacred circle and connect our energies and intentions for the festival.

BOOTH SIZE:
You will have a 36” x 36” table with about three feet between you and the reader/table next to you. The depth of your “booth” area is the depth of the table plus room for you to sit and a chair for your customers. You will need to bring a table cover. Unless approved, you cannot bring your own tables. Tables can be no larger than 36″ x 36″. You may bring your own chair if you’d like.

ELECTRICITY:
If you need electricity you will need to purchase an outlet space for an additional $25. These are very limited and are first come/first paid-accepted. Those not needing electricity cannot be guaranteed a space on the wall. It is advisable to bring an extension cord. We cannot provide you with extension cord at the event.

BANNERS AND SIGNS AND SCREENS:
Please note that due to hall regulations you may NOT place or adhere any signs or banners or anything else to the walls or doors of the property. You may bring in your own freestanding signage, retractable banners, easels, or table signs to promote you and your services and we encourage you to do so. We ask that you please be courteous when placing your signage so as not to obviously block another reader. We reserve the right to restrict any such signage at our discretion.

TIMING AND PAYMENTS FOR READINGS:
All readings should be kept at 15 minutes. Bringing a timer is advisable.
Readings will be charged at $20 per 15-minute increment. You will be paid 65% of the reading fees that we collect for you.
You are responsible for taking a PREPAID reading ticket from the customer prior to starting a reading and turning the reading tickets in for verification at the end of the festival. You are responsible for escorting your client out of the reading room upon finishing your reading and checking in at the Reader Registration Booth to see when your next reading is scheduled.

PUBLICITY AND PROMOTION:
In what ways will you publicize the festival?
We have a Facebook page @TheInsightFest. You are encouraged to visit and “like” the page.
The event will be placed online event calendars and tourism sites. We will have radio advertising as well as an email that will receive at least four information/ invitation blasts. Our event flyer will be available several weeks prior to the event and we will email that to all vendors/readers. You will be emailed the event flyer both for web and for print, and ask that you use it to also promote your appearance at the festival to your clients lists, groups, Facebook pages etc. You may also download a flyer from our event website: TheInsightFest.com

Your social media connections are very important to the success of the event. Please invite your Facebook friends and contacts and let them know that you will be there and what you be offering. Encourage them to attend the event to have fun and to get the guidance they need.
Please freely post on your Facebook page and promote you and the event as heavily as you can. Please remember that as professional readers, and metaphysicians, we are NOT in competition with one another. When we help draw in attendees for any vendor in the event we are drawing in potential clients for ourselves. Promoting the event in any way really promotes you, and each of us, and makes for a fun-filled, prosperous event.

ADVERTISING:
As a participant, there is no charge for you to put out your information, flyers, brochures, or business cards. We will have a table at the Reader Registration Booth where you can put your materials and people can pick them up. Please don’t forget to collect any of your materials left over after the event.
