Exhibitor Information

As more and increasingly serious news about the spread of COVID-19 rippled through all our lives, our team realized that we had a responsibility to take additional action to ensure a safe, fun and successful event. At this time, we must sadly confirm that The Women’s Expo has been postponed. While this was a difficult decision to make, we take the health of our guests, participants, and community very seriously.

A new date will be selected for the traditional Twin Cities Women’s Expo at Rosedale Center soon – if you are interested in Exhibiting at that future event, we are still accepting applications. In the meantime, we’re turning The Women’s Expo into a virtual event! In an effort to support our performers, speakers, and business owners, our media partner, MCN6, along with Around Town Media, is empowering us to produce a Virtual Expo for everyone to experience from the comfort and safety of their homes over the same dates (March 28 & 29). We will be broadcasting various components of the original event LIVE online, Cable Ch 6 locally, MCN6.org, on demand, and on up to 30 New Media Platforms. This event can now be seen or virtually attended worldwide.

We are also partnering with Springboard for the Arts to turn the Virtual Women’s Expo into a fundraising effort that supports artists, small business owners, and independent contractors who have experienced great financial losses due to the cancellations all over town.

Boutique Showcase

It can be challenging to sell clothing at an Expo. Not many women are willing to buy something without trying it on first. We’ve got you and your customers covered! Exhibitors in this area will have access to private fitting rooms that used to be part of the former Herberger’s.

Food & Drink Area

Most Expos have strict limitations on selling food & giving out samples – But not here! We’ve created this space just for you and all the other taste makers out there just trying to get their creations into the mouths of new fans!

Salon & Spa Area

This area is situated in a quiet & relaxing space inside the former Herberger’s – perfect for a spa, massage, makeup, or salon setup!

Pet Area

It’s no secret, we love animals! If you sell pet accessories, fashion, furniture, food, or anything else, this area is purrfect for you. Special events include an animal adoption event by Underdog Rescue, Q&A session with Katie K9, and a pet costume contest!

Fitness Area

All forms of fitness are welcome in this area! There’s more than one way to move and we want to connect women with fun new ways to approach exercise.

Community Engagement

Engaging with our community is how we take steps towards building a better, more equal world for Everyone. This is where we support one another, share experiences, and understand each other’s struggles. Our community bond helps us build valuable relationships and gives us a deeper sense of belonging. 

Expo Main Stage

Headliners include a ‘Feminist Icon’ Drag Show by Flip Phone – featuring Julia Starr, Tygra, Nocturna Lee Mission, Mercedes Iman Diamond, hosted by Sasha Cassadine. A Musical performance from NBC’s The Voice finalist Kat Perkins. The first ever LIVE Feminist Book Club Podcast – host Renee Powers, will interview local authors Junauda Petrus-Nasah, Shannon Gibney, and Sheila O’Connor. Plus a meet and greet with Lorna Landvik.

What kind of interactive experiences are we looking for?

These are some of the current interactive experiences we are building for The Expo at Rosedale Center (date TBD). Is there something you would like to bring to the expo but don’t see it here? That’s okay – contact us and let’s make it happen!

 

  • Technology/Gaming– We all know that technology is exploding, and part of that is video games! Women often are forgotten in the world of technology and gaming, so we are looking for demonstrations and activities to change that.
  • Kids – We can’t forget about the kids! We’re looking for exciting, unique activities geared towards younger crowds. From story times to art projects, concerts to dance parties, we want to have something for the whole family!
  • Fitness and Health – We place a lot of emphasis on wellness both physically and mentally. Women tend to care for others first and themselves second, which is why we are always looking to include live fitness/wellness classes, demonstrations and health checks.
  • Live Podcasts – Our dream is to have a line-up of various local podcasts recording LIVE from the Expo! If you are part of a local podcast or know someone who is, contact us. You do not need to be an exhibitor to participate.
  • Women Authors – We are looking for local women and/or LGBTQIA+ authors who are interested in doing a live reading from their book, demonstration, and/or book signing. Women authors who are interested in exhibiting will be placed in our designated ‘Women Authors’ section.
  • Spa/ Masseuse – We have access to a quiet, relaxing, space at Rosedale that is perfect for a spa, massage area, or both!
  • Local Food/Beer/Wine/Liquor Makers – Sampling, cooking or demonstrations are super popular! Gather a crowd around your booth.
