Vendor Registration Information
A key aspect of the student experience while enrolled at the CWFIMA is access to vendors who offer an array of wildland fire and emergency response equipment, supplies, and services that they generally may not have access to.
Vendors will be located with registration area in an area close to check in the upper area of the Lodge building . Booth space to display and sell your products is available. A booth space approximately 8'x10' in size is $350 for the entire week includes breakfast and lunch for 1 person throughout the week. Tabletop booth is $250 to display information only with no representative present, meals are not included. Additional booth spaces are available for $100 and include meals for 1 additional person. Additional meal tickets are available for purchase as needed., an additional $20 per day per person. Truck vendors must purchase a booth space, with no extra charge for outside space. Outside space may be limited due to constraints from the hosting venue. If you are a non-profit organization you may qualify for a discounted rate, attending personnel will need to pay for meals. Please call for more details. Returning vendors will receive priority relative to floor space layout. Booths will then be assigned on a first come, first served basis, with some consideration to vendor and product mix.
The Academy will purchase the sales permit for all vendors. Vendors will collect sales tax at the tax rate of 8.25% for the Colorado Springs area and submit payment to the Vendor Liaison prior to leaving the Academy.
