VENDOR APPLICATION

Welcome Professionals

Vendors determine the outcome of events and reflect upon us. For these reasons, only professional vendors are allowed at our venues.  The information provided in this application enables us to determine that a vendor new to us (or that we haven't seen for awhile) is actively in the business of performing the services contracted by the client. This requirement applies to all service providers who come onsite. This standard gives vendors confidence that the other vendors at events at our venues are also professionals. Once an application is complete, we will review and respond promptly.

Insurance requirement

An annual liability policy of at least $1 million and issued in your company's name is required (one-day policies are not acceptable). If you do not have a compliant annual insurance policy or are unable/ unwilling to procure one before applying, please do not continue and notify the client.

Your COI, before you apply

Before proceeding, have your Certificate of Insurance (COI) naming "Dragon Park LLC, 4710 Charlotte Ave., Nashville, TN 37209". It is more work for us all to partially apply now and send us your COI later. Additionally, please do not send us your proof of insurance (POI) as that does not add us to your policy.

Do not allow your agent to add verbiage to the "Description of Operations / Locations" section (such as event date, services performed, a venue name, or other limitations/ conditions) as this will negate the value of the COI or limit it to a single event or to only one of our venues.

Caterers providing bartending services must provide liquor liability on the COI of at least $1 million.

Fee

Vetting a new vendor takes time.  For this we charge the vendor a small fee of $50.   This is a deterrent for non-professional vendors.  We do not waive this fee.

Please do not call us with questions about this application unless the question is not answered here or on our Vendor FAQ.

Future visits

Once approved, you may move forward with a client contract for services at any of our venues.  As long as things go well at events and your insurance on file with us remains current, you're approved to return. (If your insurance on file lapses, you need to go through this application in its entirety again, sorry it's more work for all of us).  For photographers, our expectation is that you provide us with the event photos.

Unless you know you're approved to come, please don't tell a perspective client that you're approved as this can create an awkward situation. You're welcome to contact us.

Approved Vendor List

We get asked about getting on the Approved Vendor List. To a large extent, the list that is determined by our clients. If you've been to our venues, we can talk (until then we don't have information on which to base an opinion). To stay on the list, apart from generally being great, clients have to choose you with some regularity.
