This will depend on the size booth you choose. Please refer to the the seller’s package. You may rent trestle tables, clothes racks and chairs from KTGA, these will be available at an additional cost. 

We encourage sellers to create their own unique and inviting displays for their allocated space. For ideas, have a look through our PDF for inspiration and also look through our photo galleries on our website for past events.

2KW can be supplied to your booth, please select this option on the application form if you need this. The venue has limited power, so if you require additional power, KTGA needs to be notified 2 weeks before the event day. Each additional 1KW is charge of 200RMB.

KTGA will create a sign for each booth with the brand/shop name so it’s in compliance with every other booth and theme throughout the festival. Please do NOT bring roll ups and pop up banners as this is not allowed.

Due to venue restrictions, sellers must NOT use any walls or pillars in the venue. If you damage any areas within the venue you will be liable to repair costs.

This is subject to our approval and sellers guidelines which will be sent to you when your are accepted into the festival.
