Pre-printed Company Invitation Postcards: 4"x6" with your individual company name can be ordered for presentation to your customers and used as paid invitations to the Suppliers' Night event. A max of 200 Company Invitation Postcards can be ordered at one time during online registration, up until the Early Bird deadline. The price is $7.50 up front for each postcard (due to late or missed payments in the past). Each postcard is printed with a unique number so no photocopies will be accepted for entry. All unused postcards will be charged; however, undistributed postcards can be returned for a refund of $7.00 per card and a refund cheque will be mailed following the event. Only actual postcards that are returned to the registration desk on the day of the event are eligible for refund; postcards returned by mail following the event will not be accepted.
Please review the updated IFT rules and regulations that govern the annual BCFT Suppliers' Night. You will be asked to agree to these terms before submitting your registration. Space is limited and will be allocated after payment in sequence. Registration is not complete until payment is confirmed through PayPal.
