Virtue 2020 Vendor Registration 

Become a Vendor at Virtue 2020 and market your goods and services to hundreds of Christian women. We are looking for Christian-themed products and services, such as books, music, art, health and wellness, and business services. Merchants of clothing, jewelry, and accessories will not be able to vend, unless items have a Christian theme.

Use of space and all demonstrations or other sale activity must be confined to the Vendor Booth. Virtue in Christ reserves the right to restrict materials contrary to Christian values, or other vending activities that may be objectionable, or detract from the general character of the Event.
