Exhibitor Information

Exhibit at the next Rock What You Got Twin Cities Women’s Expo “The Expo” taking place on Saturday March 28 – 29, 2020 at Rosedale Center!!

Ever since we purchased The Expo in 2018, we’ve been searching for ways to improve the experience for everyone – our attendees, community partners, exhibitors and sponsors. One point of feedback that came out loud and clear was everyone wants MORE TRAFFIC!!

Okay! We hear you!

So, we are taking over Rosedale Center – a mall that has an average of 240,000 people walk through its doors every weekend! 

We are so excited to use this new stage to celebrate, educate, connect and inspire women by elevating the voices of Minnesota women business owners, entertainers, and community leaders higher than we ever have before.

Twin Cities Women’s Expo, Rock What You Got is our anthem call for everyone to embrace their uniqueness and encourage others to do the same – without apology and without guilt. We are dedicated to promoting gender equality, halting stereotypes, and providing a community hub for all women. If these values sound like something your company, product, or service aligns with, apply to be a part of our March 28 + 29 Expo! Together we can create an experience for our attendees that is innovative, creative, and value driven.

What kind of interactive experiences are we looking for?

These are some of the current interactive experiences we are building for The Expo in March 2020. 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.
