Food & Beverage Sampling and/or Sales

The City of Denver & the Colorado Convention Center each have requirement for all vendors selling and/or sampling food during the show.

The City of Denver requires that all specialty food & beverage vendors intending to sell their product at this event need to complete the following an “Affidavit of Commissary” &  "Temporary Food Establishment Acknowledgement Letter".

Even though the products are pre-packaged, the Dept of Public Health needs to know where they were made (affidavit of commissary).  Certain food product may fall under the Colorado Cottage Foods Act

Please refer to the "Temporary Retail Food Establishment Requirement Decision Tree" for details before reaching out directly to the City of Denver's Department of Excise & License using info below.

Food and Beverage Sampling and Donations Policies

Sampling Request Form

Demo Waiver of Liability

• Food should be packaged and sold in a way that it is not consumable on-site otherwise the vendor will be charged a fee of 30% on all sales
• All vendors sampling food execute both the Sampling Request Form & Demo Waiver of Liability form.  
• All vendors selling food must have the Demo Waiver Form executed.   This is required for any product that could possibly be consumed on-site, even if intended for later consumption.  
• If vendors are sampling food, food has to be protected from cross contamination and a hand washing station will need to be readily available. Water for handwashing has to be 100 – 120 degrees Fahrenheit with soap and paper towels.
• Handwash stations are not provided by the facility, nor available to rent from the facility.  Vendors must bring their own. 
• Ice is available for purchase

Both forms must be executed and submitted to Centerplate no later than November 4th.

Insurance Needs

Our shows have all been set up so exhibitors can apply using this link: https://www.buttine.com/eventExhibitor.html

A few things to be aware of:

  • Exhibitors will have to pick the show from a drop-down list that includes shows other than just those run by MPE. 
  • Marketplace Events is not selling this insurance and doesn’t profit from it in any way.  This is simply a resource for those exhibitors who don’t already have the required insurance coverage per their contracts.  They do not have to purchase this.

The Insurance clause is #5 on the Terms and Conditions page of all booth space contracts.  For easy reference, exhibitors are required to have:

  • Comprehensive General Liability and All Risk Property insurance
  • Coverage must be from the start of move in to the end of move out
  • Coverage of at least $1,000,000 for each separate occurrence
  • Name Marketplace Events LLC and the venue as additional insured
  • Provide a copy of certificate of insurance to MPE
