Reader Application

We are so grateful you are applying for table space in the

7th Annual Spring Expo!

Both full payment and completed application with photo are required in order to be considered complete.

 

QUESTIONS about the Reader Rooms: Christina, readers@enlightenedsoulexpo.com or 734-968-9723
 

The Reader Rooms are SOLD OUT!
To request being added to our Wait List, please email readers@enlightenedsoulexpo.com.

WE OFFER 20-Minute readings for $30 and 30-Minute readings for $50 IN OUR EXCLUSIVE READER ROOMS. 
To be accepted as a reader in our Reader Room, we must already know your work or
you may need to be TESTED AND APPROVED by our staff or recommended by a trusted friend of ours.

HOW IS OUR READING SERVICE DIFFERENT FROM MOST OTHER PSYCHIC FAIRS?

There are NO INTERRUPTIONS, since the appointments and payment are taken centrally at the Reader Appointment Tables in the Commons. NO ONE ELSE IS WALKING UP TO YOUR TABLE TO SIGN UP FOR AN APPOINTMENT DURING YOUR READING! You do not need to handle payments or scheduling appointments; leave that to us! Readers are paid by check at the end of the Expo on Sunday, minus a 3% credit card and handling fee. In this way, you can do more readings with less waiting time in between! We also ask you to pre-schedule with us any lunches and other breaks, so we know in advance not to book an appointment for you while you are away from your table.

 

After clients have signed up and paid at the Reader Appointment Tables, we ask them to go to the Reader Check-In Table (located outside each Reader Room) five minutes before their appointment time to check in and wait. They experience our CONCIERGE SERVICE as they are escorted to their reader when it's time for their reading. 

WE ALSO HAVE VENDORS & BODYWORKERS in our Vendor Area

Currently, vendors cannot offer readings at their booths. This is to preserve the integrity of the Reader Rooms. You can apply for an exception, if you offer something UNUSUAL that cannot conform to our 20-minute and 30-minute Reader Room procedures (i.e. casting astrology charts, doing artwork or energy work with readings). If approved to offer readings in a vendor booth, the READING COST CANNOT BE LESS than what our Reader Room charges, $1.50/minute. Please contact Britni at vendors@enlightenedsoulexpo.com to apply for an exception and see the Vendor Application page

TO APPLY: Please read the below and then scroll to the BOTTOM of this page for the form!
 

New readers must either have a recommendation from someone we know and trust, or may be asked to try out. 
Thanks and namaste! We look forward to seeing you and serving you!

  • NEW! SPONSORSHIP: We now offer Sponsorship Opportunities that can increase the visibility of your business at the Expo! There are various levels of perks, depending upon the monetary donation, from being included on the At-a-Glance handout to exclusive sponsorship of a physical area of the Expo. Please see the PDF link below to download the Sponsorship document for more information. 

  • We are only accepting applications for both days of the Expo.

  • VOLUNTEER PRIZE DONATION: We're asking everyone to donate a gift certificate to reward our volunteers. Gift certificates should be for full free offers — no coupons or discounts. ALL donations should be brought to us at the Volunteer Office ON SATURDAY or given to the Vendor Coordinator or Vendor Assistant who make the rounds of the booths, so that we can allocate the right amount of certificates to cover our volunteers each day. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR DONATION DIRECTLY TO VOLUNTEERS unless these are "extra" donations, to reward a volunteer who has helped you, separate from the donation you give to the Volunteer Office. We will have blank certificates at the Expo for you to fill out, or feel free to bring your own.  Thank you for helping to support our hard-working volunteers!

  • Please bring EXTRA business cards for the Reader Promotion Table!!! It will be prominently placed adjacent to the Reading Appointment Tables, so that clients have access to reader information even if they can't book appointments with everyone. Please be mindful that there may be up to 30 readers that will be displayed on the promotion table, so please do not bring multiple flyers with brochures and business cards that take up a larger amount of space or they may be removed. 

  • Please no candles, incense, sprays, or anything scented — to respect those who have allergies or sensitivities. WHEN IN DOUBT, please ask permission from Christina DePugh, Reader Coordinator and Expo Co-Director.
