IDA Marketplace Application

The IDA (Individual Development Account) Marketplace at Neighborhood Partnerships’ annual RE:Conference is one of the highlights of the 2 day event. Attendees love meeting vendors, buying their unique products, and learning more about the Oregon IDA Initiative from people who have used the program to launch or expand their entrepreneurial dreams.

The Marketplace will be 2 to 3 hours long on the afternoon of October 23rd, showcasing approximately 15 vendors. There will be entertainment and a reception in the same space. This is a great chance to showcase your business and engage with a very friendly and receptive audience.

Each year we also offer attendees a swag bag containing 3-4 items purchased from IDA businesses. Last year swag bags contained screen-printed fabric patches, gourmet caramel corn, chap stick, and dip mixes.

If you are interested in being considered as a vendor, for swag bags, or as a performer during this year’s marketplace, please fill out the application below and select how you are interested in participating. We will review all applications and make selections based on a number of factors, including business location (to accurately represent the reach of the IDA Initiative) and variety of products and services.

  • Arrive early for set-up
  • The IDA graduate must be present at the conference
