Daytona Bike Week
Daytona Bike Week is now over, it was overall a very nice long week with lots of sunshine and a few days of rain. The first Saturday was really a bummer followed by a week of sunshine but cold weather. I’m just getting ready to put up some of the pictures I took rolling around town with my van selling wholesale biker patches to vendors. Enough said here are the pictures with some captions. Until next time, take care.
Here are some pictures I took since the beginning of Daytona Bike Week this year. Enjoy the pictures and get your Daytona Patches here. Currently ships out for free. Order today while I still have them. Click on the pictures to see them bigger. I tried to add a few sentences describing what’s going on.
Finally received all my 2010 event patches for Daytona Bike Week. I’ve put them up on the site and you can buy Daytona 2010 patch right here. I’m putting up their pictures on this post. Sizes are perfect, not too big, not too small. Perhaps the shield came out a little small but the rest are all fine. These rally patches are also available for wholesale so please drop me a line if you want to purchase them in bulk go to my wholesale Daytona patches page. I will have these patches up on the site until I sell out of them. Don’t have an infinite amount of stock on these, first comers get them. If you are too late then sorry you are out of luck here.
It is a pain in the neck finding vendor information on Daytona international speedway official site. I’ve dug in there and pulled out all the information needed to become a vendor at the speedway for the bike week 2010.
First of all Bike Week event for the Speedway is called the Daytona 200 Week. At this page there is a link that says Vendor Display Information. Basically a form which you can download and fax over to receive more information. There is no point in me copying and pasting all these forms here, just follow the link for Daytona 200 Week and you should see it right there in the middle to download the form which you should than fax over according to the instructions below it.
Be prepared to have some kind of liability insurance because they will require it along other paperwork which they will let you know once they send you over a vendor packet. I won’t be vending at any particular spot during bike week. I’ll just be going around visiting vendors trying to get them to carry some of my biker patches. You might be a sunglass vendor or a tshirt vendor, but why not give patches a shot? They take up no room at all in the trailer. You really can fit $20,000 worth of patches in a small box. I’ve got some great saying patches that always make people stop and read over them. Makes your tent look busy and don’t forget crowd attracts the crowd.
I know I hate shopping, especially when my wife is looking over things in a store. I always rush her because I’m just bored and don’t want to stare in to blank space while she picks something out. I’m sure you’ve seen the same situation many times in your tent where the wife wants to look around but the husband is telling her to come on lets go. Well these saying patches will give the husband something to do while the wife shops in peace. Give them a try, wholesale prices are highly attractive on these items with great profit margins. And remember, they take no room at all in the trailer. You can always staple them on boards and hang them up instead of taking up table space (although items displayed on tables will always outsell items displayed on walls, people simply like to touch and feel over a table vs. reach over for something hanging vertically).
Well more vendor tips in future blogs, I need to stick to the point and this article should only be about vending at the Speedway. Good Luck to you all. Please don’t blame me for failing at a spot I recommend. I only talk from past experiences of what I’ve seen. I can’t predict the future. I do not get nor want any commissions for my referrals. I don’t want anyone getting the idea that I tap people in because they pay me. That is not the case, and will never be the case. As you can see I take no advertisements from anyone. I would rather make an honest living selling my patches than collect ad revenues from bullshitters and display their unreal claims to my readers.
Dear Vendors and Bikers, winter is almost over and done with, or at least for Florida it is. Daytona Bike Week is starting at the end of February and I do have event pins, shirts and patches in at the moment. You can place an order directly off my online store whether you are buying a few pieces for yourself or wanting to get wholesale to vend at the event. I can even point you in direction to see where you can setup a vending booth.
Now just the event patches and a whole other generic patches are available for wholesale. See the pictures of wholesale patches make sure you first send me an email wanting a wholesale account. Once I approve of it you will be able to see the lower bulk purchase prices by logging in with your username and password. (Retail customers, you can just sign up automatically and place an order).
Have a safe ride everyone.
