About the ROAR Vendor Opportunity:
Please review all information on this page before completing your registration form.
The Alamance Chamber & ROAR Women’s Symposium Planning Committee invite you to participate in ROAR 2024 as a Vendor. The symposium will be held Friday, March 22nd at the Alliance Convention Center in Burlington from 8 am to 3 pm.
Here at ROAR, we celebrate women — the doers, the dreamers, the changemakers, and world-shakers. Featuring networking and vendor breaks, a panel discussion, and dynamic speakers, ROAR connects and empowers women of all walks of life to share their stories, build their networks, and unlock their potential.
As a Vendor, your business has the advantage to sell and demonstrate your products and services, as well as showcase resources for event attendees in the ROAR Marketplace. The ROAR planning committee is expecting 450+ attendees this year, which is an incredible marketing investment for your business!
- Limit 1 booth per company (first come, first-serve basis)
- Booth sharing is not permitted
- Registration as a vendor includes choice of standard or enhanced booth setup, one complimentary registration to the event (includes breakfast and lunch), listing in event program, presentation, website and other event promotions
Vendor Booth Pricing:

Where will the Vendor Marketplace be setup?
The Vendor Marketplace will be setup in Inspiration Hall, directly next to the main event space. Moving to this space allows for a more enhanced and professional marketplace experience for our vendors.
Tell me more about the complimentary event registration. What does this include?
Your registration as a vendor also includes one complimentary event registration. This means one person will have access to the main event, taking place in Prosperity Hall. This gives you access to a seat at the event and the opportunity to hear our incredible lineup of speakers.
How will I utilize the complimentary event registration if I’m staffing the booth?
There will be designated vendor breaks throughout the day, which is when the marketplace will experience the most traffic. Traditionally, vendors staff their tables during registration, our morning vendor breaks, lunch, and at the conclusion of the conference as attendees are leaving. During the program, they move into the main event space. The main event space (Prosperity Hall) is connected to the marketplace area (Inspiration Hall) so it’s a quick walk away!
I will be bringing someone to assist me at my booth. Can they attend the main event as well?
Absolutely! You will just need to purchase an additional event registration if they want to attend the main event. Otherwise, they are welcome to hang out in the vendor marketplace throughout the day. If they are staffing the table, but you’d like to purchase a lunch ticket for them, you can do so for an additional $25.
When is setup and tear down?
Setup will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, March 21st. Traditionally, it is from 3 – 5 p.m., however we will communicate the time with you once it’s confirmed. Tear-down will take place once the event concludes at 3:00 p.m.
Can I provide a doorprize?
Absolutely. Providing doorprizes are a great way to increase engagement at your booth. If you choose to offer a doorprize, this will be up to you to coordinate and facilitate as we will not be announcing doorprizes from the main stage.
What should I bring?
We always encourage vendors to be creative when setting up their booth. Banners, table cloths, signs are always a nice touch. It’s also a good idea to bring business cards, flyers, or other collateral information about your business.
Vendors with the larger, enhanced booth space will have room to bring clothing racks, small side tables and more. This allows you the option to create a “pop up shop” experience for attendees.
How will I be promoted as a vendor?
Vendors will be added to our event website, promoted on social media prior to the event, and will be listed in the program and presentation at the event.
How will you communicate updates to me?
Event updates and final vendor details will be communicated via email beginning 2 weeks prior to the event. This will included a detailed outline of the program, vendor breaks, and setup times.
If I have other questions, who should I direct them to?
Any questions can be directed to Kelly Roberts, Senior Director of Investor Engagement with the Alamance Chamber at email@example.com. During the event, chamber staff and volunteers will be easily accessible and available to answer any questions.
Great, I’m ready. How do I reserve my booth?
