Dealers can check-in at the Registration Desk outside the entrance to the showroom. 

Deliveries to the Hotel:  The Loading dock will be open on Friday 9am -6pm. Drive around to the back of the main hotel area directly behind the showroom. If you are shipping to the hotel please arrange to have your box arrive no earlier than Tuesday. Be sure to have IGMA and your name or my name (Linda Zechel) on the mailing labels. Add some bright colored stickers or tape to help identify your packages.

Security:    Doors to the showroom are locked when the last dealer exits. In the evenings, a security guard is stationed inside the showroom. There will be someone in the dealer room 24 hours to ensure security coverage. 

Please bring a cover for your display and make plans to remove any items of high value each night. There are safes in the rooms and a security box behind the front desk. Please be careful and not flash your cash around. 

Please consider alternate forms of cashless payments such as PayPal, VENMO, Cash App and Zelle and credit cards for safety and to enable more buyers to purchase from you. 

If you see something, say something, so that we can ensure that we have a safe and theft-free show. 

During the show, there are Red Apron volunteers available to help out if you need to leave your table. We will post a phone number for their station. 

There is complimentary internet available in the show-room and the WiFi Password will be posted on the walls of the dealer room. 

 Badges: Two (2) badges will be issued to each dealer for the show per table. No one will be allowed into the showroom, at any time, without a Guild Show badge. This includes during set-up times during the day on Friday and on Saturday morning. Please provide names prior to the show so that we can print name tags for everyone. 

 At the Show: All dealers and helpers must be ready at their tables when the showroom doors open. All merchandise must be marked with a price or de-scribed on an available price list. Any item not priced must be clearly marked “For Display Only—NFS”. Sales slips need to include the seller’s name and address and must be provided for all merchandise sold. All merchandise must be wrapped. 

 Sales Tax:  Dealers are responsible for collecting and paying their own Connecticut state sales tax. You as dealers and business owners are responsible for this. Look on the Connecticut Sales Tax site and ask your accountant for advice if you need help. IGMA cannot advise on your specific tax circumstances. Currently Connecticut Sales Tax is 6.35% for 2021. 

Plastic Bags:   Connecticut has banned those one-time plastic bags from the grocery stores. This also applies to our show. Ziploc and paper bags are fine. We encourage people to bring their own re-useable bags for shopping.
