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 from 4-6 PM on October 29th, showcasing approximately 15 vendors. There will be entertainment and a reception in the same space. This is a great chance to sell your products, showcase your business, and engage with a very friendly and receptive audience of around 300 people. 

If you are interested in being considered as a vendor or as a performer during this year’s marketplace, please fill out the application below. We will review all applications and make selections focused on highlighting the geographic scope of the Initiative and a variety of products and services. You will be notified if you are chosen as a vendor.

New information for this year: In an effort to continue to improve this event, we surveyed past attendees. They let us know that $20 or below is the best price point for them, so we will encourage vendors to have some products in the $20 or below price range. This year we are excited to be providing all conference attendees with a $5 IDA Marketplace voucher they can use to purchase items from vendors. This will encourage attendees to make purchases and to interact with vendors.

All vendors are also invited to attend the full 2-day conference if they are interested and able to, free of charge. Attendance could be for a single day or for both days. Click here to learn more about the conference. Here is the schedule for the conference, and here are some of the speakers that will be featured during the conference. If you are interested in assisting with the planning of a session or sharing your experience of using IDAs to support your goals, we would love to have you involved! Please email Stacey to learn more about getting involved in RE:Conference planning.
