Since not everyone can respond in the required timely manner - and some just love to wait to the last minute - I have added "Electric Avenue 2013 Exhibitor Interest (Intention - Last Minute Notification)" to the Ticketing on http://electricavenue2013.eventbrite.ca/ - and on the embedded ticketing portion added to http://electricavenue.evfest.ca/.
The choice to charge $25.00 Plus Fees is to encourage a reduction in Last Minute Registrants!
The notes attached to that ticket state:
- If you want to Exhibit at Electric Avenue 2013 - but decided too late, Here is a little motivation to try earlier next time - and to cover our last minute organizing costs. It is in addition to the Exhibitor Registration Fees from Formula North, and is Non-Refundable. This option expires at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, May 8th, 2013, to give you time to complete your Payment and Registration to Formula North by May 10th, 2013.
It might be a little unusual to charge such a late fee, but not all that much, considering most of those who miss the Friday Regular Deadline have been notified of this event - repeatedly for some time now - beginning in January, 2013, and have yet to respond. So if suddenly they decide to come - here is a little motivation to plan better for such events, instead of putting more pressure on all the organizers.
As they have known for some time also - this event is held in conjunction with Formula North - and they have had the tools on their site to complete the Exhibitor Registration with them - visible now for some time!
Hopefully everyone will get in line by tonight instead of paying extra for getting behind the 8-Ball!
