Hey guys to answer a few questions that people have been asking...
Bring your gear! We will have two side by side salon rooms that are 1100 Sq. Ft. each. -- so that's 2200 Sq. Ft. of space. I'm thinking we'll have vendors on the perimeter and then member tables in the center in rows. I believe tables are 8' long. I will double check when I go to the venue next week.
Tables are on first come first serve basis. Vendor set up begins at 7:30AM, but any members can feel free to come and set up then. I know this is super early for a lot of guys so it might take a few hours before the tables are filled. I will find out how many tables we can fit in there in total when I go later this week.
I'm thinking that gear wise maybe limit it to headphone gear. I'm not sure how things would work out with speakers in the mix. Bring your DAPs, USB thumb drives, CDs, turntables, laptops, etc. Someone will have something that can play your music. Bring extension cords, power strips, etc. The more of this stuff we have the more likely everyone will be able to plug in.
Food wise... I'm not sure what is in the area, but it's Queens so I'm sure there should be options. I'd say it's best practice to not bring food and drink in and get everyone's gear all icky. However, peeps do what they gotta do. So be respectful of others hard earned gear.
Finally, I think it would be great for everyone that wants to bring stuff to sell or trade then by all means do it. In my mind, this is the time and place to do that kind of thing.
I need to update the list of who's coming and what they're bringing and will do so in the next day or so. Hope that answers some questions.
