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 29th, 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. 

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 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.

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 products available in this range. This year we are excited to be providing all conference attendees with an 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 will also be invited to attend the conference if they would like to. 

Expectations for vendors:

  • Arrive early for set-up
  • The IDA graduate must be present at the conference
  • Vendor should be willing to talk about their IDA experience with customers
  • Vendors will be reimbursed for travel and paid for participation

Application Deadlines:

  • August 16th for all other applicants (selection by August 30th)
