Auto Italia Canberra Vendors
The Italian Cars Association (ICA) promotes the ownership and appreciation of Italian vehicles and therefore encourages stalls that support and enhance the Auto Italia Canberra event.
For 2020 the event is being held at the Exhibition Park In Canberra (EPIC), Mitchell ACT. EPIC will be engaging all catering (food and drink) vendors. The ICA is providing engagement and coordination of non-catering stallholders for the 2019 event.
Non-catering stallholders should offer products or services that are compatible with Italian culture and/or the Italian automotive industry.
General information for Stallholders:
Date: Sunday 29 March 2020.
Time: Please arrive before 08:30 so as to limit pedestrian conflicts in this open space. Car exhibitors and organisers will be present in strength from 08:00 onwards in case you would like to set up earlier. The event proper runs from 10:00 to 14:30 and we would like your services to be available across that time.
Location of the event: Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC), corner of Flemington Rd and Northbourne Avenue, Mitchell ACT.
Entry to the Site: Will be via the Mallee Pavilion entry to the Arena, via the Stirling Avenue entry to the EPIC precinct, off the Federal Highway. A detailed access map will be provided. Identify yourself to the entrance marshals as a vendor and they will direct you appropriately.
Location of your stall: See the maps page on this site
Infrastructure: Please bring your own infrastructure and cover. Please note that any marquees or structures must be secured against wind movement by weights. Any structure larger than a 3x3 marquee must be accompanied by either an engineer’s certificate or evidence that the weighting used complies with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Power: Power should be available to some stallholder sites for this event. Please advise power requirements so that total draw can be addressed. Power needs may have to be met by your own source.
Parking: Parking for vendor support vehicles will be available to the rear of vendor sites.

Single Site - $250
Double Site - $350

Wet Weather: If heavy rain is predicted for the event day then the event could be abandoned at short notice – if so we will notify participants. If the grounds are waterlogged from previous rain then the event will either be reorganised to operate from available hardstand or abandoned, with participants notified. In the case of predicted minor wet weather or unexpected rain on the day the event will continue. If the event is abandoned fees will not be refunded. It is recommended that if applicable you come equipped with shelter against minor rain, e.g. a gazebo tent.
Reads: The event features a full time announcer, who through the day will read a text of your choice for promoting your stall. Please provide any text that you would like to hear read out, about 10 seconds worth. Vendors can expect two reads across the day.
Point of Contact: The point of contact for any of the above matters is the ICA Concessionaires Manager, Mr Matt Townsend, available via firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred) or 0427 275 038. Note that a response will probably be delayed until after working hours.
