Re-Sign Process and Show Information

Re-Sign Process

The Re-Sign Process is changing at the 2022 Winter Show!

Read on to learn more about this!


★ What we are trying to do:

  • Making re-sign a process that is easy to navigate
  • Getting your contract in your hands sooner
  • Invoicing earlier to reduce payment delays
  • Providing you with peace of mind so you can focus on what's important

★ What is Re-Sign?

This is one of the biggest perks of exhibiting at One Of A Kind! At each event, exhibitors are given an exclusive and limited time to confirm a space for next year's event.

★ That's great, but what does that really mean?

It means you have a chance to secure your participation in the next show. Basically, if you are exhibiting at THIS show – you can guarantee your participation for Winter 2023 if you complete the re-sign form by the end of the Show.

★ So, what is the process to sign up for the 2023 Winter Show at the 2022 event?

In the simplest term, you will be required to do the following to re-sign for the 2023 Winter Show:

  • Complete the re-sign form indicating your intent to participate next year
  • Receive your contract
  • Sign your contract electronically within 10 days of receiving it
  • Pay 15% by date outlined in your invoice

★ So, how is this different from how we resigned previously?

  • You will get your contract sooner (like 6 months earlier!)
  • Your first payment is due AFTER your contract is signed (no need to pay a deposit when you submit your Re-Sign form)
  • Your first payment is 15% of your booth fee

★ What are the key dates, and what do I need to do?

  • Friday, November 25, 2022: You will get an email invitation with a link to access the Re-Sign form. Can't find the email, don't worry, the link will also be available onsite and in the exhibitor lounge.
  • From Friday, November 25, 9:00am to Sunday, December 4, 11:59pm: You will be able to submit your online form to indicate your intention to re-sign. No payment or deposit is required at this time
  • Upon submitting your re-sign form: You will receive a confirmation email indicating your re-sign form was submitted successfully
  • Once your re-sign form is processed: You will receive and sign your contract electronically via DocuSign. For timeline, please see the info posted below.
  • Sign and return your contract online within 10 days of receipt
  • Pay your 15% by January: You will receive three invoices. The first invoice payment for 15% is due upon receipt. The next invoice will be sent in April, and full payment is due in September.

★ I like the sound of this new process, but how soon is soon? When will I receive my contract & invoice?

Well, that depends on what you want to re-sign for!

In the summer, we did some research and noticed that most of you keep your booth size, length in show or section the same when you re-sign from year to year. In short, most of you always re-sign for the EXACT same thing.

Recognizing this trend, the new procedures will expediate the re-sign process for most of you. If you want your participation in the 2023 Winter Show to remain EXACTLY the same as the 2022 Winter Show (same booth size, same length in show, same Section if you belong in one), as long as you submit your re-sign form by Sunday, December 4 at 11:59pm, you will receive your contract by December 9, 2022.

IMPORTANT: If you re-sign for the exact same thing, that does NOT mean you will get the same booth number and location. The One Of A Kind Show aims at not presenting the same show year after year to keep things fresh and interesting.

If you are altering your participation for the 2023 Winter Show (that means you either want to change booth size, length in show, and/or section), no worries. We will still get your contract to you as soon as possible. To best manage your expectations, we guarantee that you will have your contract at the very latest by Friday, February 10, 2023. This timeline will ensure we have time to review and process your requests for the next Winter Show.

★ How long do I have to re-sign?

The re-sign offer is only available from Friday, November 25, 2022 at 9:00am until Sunday, December 4, 2022 at 11:59pm.

★ How much is it to participate in the 2023 Winter Show?

We do not usually offer any early bird rate to re-sign for the Winter Show. However, as a small gesture of appreciation for your ongoing support as we rebuild our business together, for this show only, you can lock in your 2022 booth rates by completing your re-sign form! To take advantage of this offer, you must submit your re-sign form by the specified deadline. No exception.

★ What else do I need to know?

  • To be extra clear, if you want to resign for the EXACT same booth size and exhibition conditions, this means:
    • You are re-signing for the same booth size (For example: if you are currently in a 5 x 10 booth, you will be re-signing for a 5 x 10 booth next year. If you want a 5 x 10 corner booth next year, that is considered a change)
    • You are re-signing for the same length in show (For example: If you are currently exhibiting for the full 11 days, you will also be in the show for the full 11 days next year; if you want to exhibit in the 5 day section next year, that is a change)
    • You are re-signing for the same section if you belong in a section (The sections we have in the show are: Flavours and Original Art Gallery; if you do not belong in a section, you will continue to not be in a section for the next year’s event)
  • Re-signing means that you will be continuing on with your current contracted items. If your participation is contingent on selling other products you are currently not contracted for, it is best to submit a new application
  • As always, you will have to abide to the same production criteria in order to be a part of the Show (your work is heavily produced by you and made in Canada only)
  • The Exclusivity Clause will also be returning for Winter 2023. What is this?
    • 6. EXCLUSIVITY CLAUSE: g) “Exhibitor” (including agents) or their craft (including non-contracted items) are not found or sold at any other consumer show (including but not limited to craft shows, garden shows, home shows, decorating shows, women's shows, clothing shows, etc.) within a 30km radius of the Enercare Centre 14 days before, during or 14 days after the One Of A Kind Show (November 23, 2023 - December 3, 2023).“Exhibitor” can participate in any consumer show with 40 or fewer exhibitors or a duration of 1 calendar day or less, provided it does not occur 7 days before, during or 7 days after the One Of A Kind Show (November 23, 2023 -December 3, 2023).This clause does not apply to participation in any Informa events. Consequence: In the event where this clause (6g) is violated, the exhibitor will not be able to participate at the One Of A Kind Shows for one calendar year and will forfeit any deposit and/or booth fees paid towards the events.
  • If at any time an exhibitor finds themselves violating any conditions of exhibiting (selling products other than contracted items, selling products not made in Canada, violating the Code of Conduct etc), the One Of A Kind Show reserves the right to revoke participation with or without a refund
  • What is the Cancellation and Refund Policy?
    • All payments are final, there is no refund, cancellation of transfer of fees.
