If a vendors name scrunched up next to their competitors is all it takes to get thier participation than more power to them.

But I would wager that the inclusion on the t-shirt is virtually worthless to these vendors. They are there because they see the value of the event and having 4000 raving BMW fans to see their products.

Vendors care about selling products....not little logos on the back of a shirt that will sit in a drawer 25 days a month.

The vendors mostly participate because they love the event... and yes, to eventually make sales from their exposure. Business is business.

They were all VERY eager to be included on the shirt, more than you can imagine... some even fought over it.

Vendors, as any business, care about exposure and marketing to be succesful and continue to grow. Will they get millions from the shirt, no... But do you know how much companies pay to put their logo on the silliest shortest-lifespan products such as pens, lighters, matchbooks, plastic one-use cups, wrappers, etc... That is all trash with a one-time impression... Think about it. They do it for a reason. The shirts were an idea of mine to give them a bit of appreciation for coming each year and making Bimmerfest the best event it can be. Not a moneymaker.

Were there any Bimmerfest shirts made for ladies that might still be available for sale?

First we will need to see a pic of the Lady who will be wearing the shirt so we can make a recommendation on sizing.
