Quilt Market Credential Requirements

All Market business credentials expired at the end of 2016. All businesses will be required to submit new credentials in order to attend future Markets, regardless of when they were last approved.

 

Credentials include two different categories (or badge types) and several options for businesses to provide documentation in order to qualify to attend Market. These options enable legitimate businesses of many types and sizes to qualify to attend Quilt Market. The approved time period for credentials is three years. This means all business credentials submitted and approved now will be good until December of 2019. Employee credentials must be submitted for each show, so if you plan to attend our 2017 spring Market in St. Louis, you may also submit employee credentials at this time.

 

Badge type does not limit purchasing power with Market vendors.

 

Credential requirements are as follows:
