Reunion Weekend Vendors and Supporters

Welcome Vendors and Supporters.  If you are a vendor who wishes to participate with the All Classes Black Alumni Reunion (ACBAR) or Donate Door Prizes, please contact us at 312.575.7856.  Vendors who donate will have their logo and website promoted on our website and highlighted in our printed Souvenir Ad Book, along with a description of their support for the Reunion.  Vendors who wish to attend the ACBAR should use the Reunion Attendee Registration Page.

Thank you for visiting the All Classes Black Alumni Reunion/ Project 500 Commemoration (ACBAR/500) 2008 Online Vendor Registration Page.  This page will allow you to register your company and all attendees you will be bringing to the Reunion.  You will need to pay your Reunion fees online via a Pay Pal secure credit card transaction (the preferred method of payment of the ACBAR/500), or you may pay via check or money order by using U.S.  mail.  All payments must be received no later than September 30, 2008.

The Vendor Registration Fee is $500.00.  The Vendor Fee includes sufficient power to run minor electrical devices such as a laptop and a credit card machine.   Phone and internet services are not included in the fee.  There may be an additional fee if you have additional requirements. Click here for more information and to register

Registering as a vendor only allows you to participate in the vendor area.  Vendors are not allowed to participate in other reunion functions unless they also register as an attendee.

If you would like to participate as a vendor and have full access to all the Reunion facilities and participate in all Reunion activities (including the welcome reception, evening events, other seminars, and attend our Gala Awards Banquet), you may register as a regular attendee using the Attendee Registration Page.  The early bird Registration fee for attendees is $105.00 per person.

NOTE:  Your registration as a vendor will not be confirmed until we receive your deposit of $100.00.  Vendor registrations which are not paid within 30 days from the date of registering online will be deleted.  Because of the format and venue restrictions, we are forced to limit the number of vendors.  We anticipate well over 1000 alumni will be returning to campus in November to attend the Reunion.   In the past, we have sold out Vendor space prior to the event, so please register now! 

We look forward to seeing you in Urbana-Champaign at this year's Reunion.

Important Reminders!!!

Registering as a Vendor does not take care of your lodging accommodations at the reunion. You will still need to make your own arrangements for lodging at one of the Reunion hotels. Please be sure to visit the Reunion website for details and information.

Cancellation Policy

Because the fixed cost of the event dictates, the Reunion Committee regrets the adoption of a no refund and non transfer policy on vendor registration. The Reunion Committee reserves the right to cease acceptance of Vendor registration at any time.
