Vendor Program

Welcome, camp-loving businesses! We hope you’ll plan to join us in the National Gathering Vendor Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday (1/31 and 2/1). We’re expecting more than 300 camp and retreat center leaders to be in attendance, so it will be a terrific opportunity to showcase your products and services and to share how your business can help our camps do what they do best. Questions? Please contact Vendor Hall Coordinator, Heather Withrow:

This Business Affiliate Vendor program is a cost savings for our current UMCRM Business Affiliate Members over a two-year span.The $350 increase in cost for those Vendor Hall participants who were not previously Business Affiliates is relatively small, reflects a more accurate value of vendor fees for an event of our size (compared to other camp and retreat associations), provides businesses with a better value over the two year span, and allows UMCRM build a stronger connection with our Affiliates.
