The Sturgis Buffalo Chip announced that Meade County will be lowering the cost of vendor fees during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
In a landmark decision announced on Wednesday, Meade County Commissioners voted to lower vendor fees during the Sturgis Motorcycle rally and to make online registration available, making it easier, more cost effective and more profitable for rally vendors to conduct business in Meade County venues such as the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Vendors will now receive a lower rate of $360 when obtaining their permit online at least 30 day prior to the rally.
Lower fees and the ease of working in Meade County’s pro-business environment should see more vendors taking advantage of this milestone, cost -lowering effort.
“All we have heard for a long time is how governments raise fees and put more restrictions on vendors every year,” said Buffalo Chip owner Rod Woodruff. “Meade County has said it is pro-business and has demonstrated that commitment by taking the unprecedented measure of making it easier and less expensive to do rally business. This will help all the high quality brands that choose to do business at the Buffalo Chip. This will also improve the bottom line for all rally vendors in the county. It’s an impressive gesture and is certainly appreciated. We look forward to helping vendors do more business in a cost effective manner at motorcycling’s premiere entertainment and camping destination, the legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip."
