Vendor Information

The Princeton National Rowing Association invites you to join us for the 2013 Mercer Lake Sprints on April 19-20, 2013, at Mercer Lake, West Windsor, NJ. 

I am excited to report that in the first four days of registration, 40 teams from 7 states entered over 481 boats in this event.  Accompanying these boats and the junior competitors that row them, will be between 7,000 and 10,000 family members and friends who attend this regatta. This presents a great opportunity for you to reach your customers.

The Mercer Lake facility is one of the finest rowing venues in the country.  Our Vendor Village is positioned in the prime spot to take advantage of the spectators and athletes attending the regatta. 

  • All of the spectators will pass through the Village on their way from spectator parking to the team tent area. 
  • The Vendor Village is beside the prime viewing area for the last 250m and finish of races.
  • The Awards stage is set up in the Vendor Village. 
  • The Results Board will also be in the Vendor Village

All of this is designed to provide you and your company with maximum exposure.

If you can’t make it to the regatta, we also have made it economical for you to advertise on our regatta website.  Our website generates highly qualified traffic from the rowing community, and we see a distinct peak in the traffic in the days leading up to and after the Mercer Lakes Sprints.

Both on-site vendors and website advertisers will receive recognition in our popular real time Twitter feed of race results.

Please review the following information and don’t hesitate to contact us for a quick response.
