Vending "locations & landlords"

Where's a good location for me to be a vendor?
I receive a lot of e-mail asking me this question and here's my answer:
Finding a successful vending location comes in time. At these biker events there are only 'so many' hot locations and usually there are 'more vendors' than there are 'hot locations.' After many years of repeat visits to event sites, vendors come to know where the hot spots are and every year they continue to scout around to 'find' where the next 'good spot' may pop up for the next year. Sometimes their guess is right and sometimes not, but this is the method of how a 'hot vending spot' is found. It's a continual vigilant search. Even when a vendor does find his (or her) sweet vending spot, they will do two things: (1) stick to it like glue (2) continue to look around for a better spot.
If it's your first time around, I would advise you going to the biker event as a person (not a vendor) and do your 'scouting around' for the vending spot you feel will be best suited for your product. Reserve it for the next year and give it a try. And every year after... continue to scout around looking for an even better spot for the next year. Biker events are booming with growth and 'new hot spots' are popping up all the time.
To help you find your vending spot, the following is a list of vending locations and landlords for the Daytona Beach area:

VENDOR NOTICE: You need license & permits to vend during Bike Week & Biketoberfest.
Before you sign a landlord's lease agreement or pay a deposit, check with us for land use (zoning) verification. The building might be subject to an inspection and that will be determined when you apply for your vendor occupational license.
Contact the following landlords and arrange a "vendors rental agreement."
