15 October, 2016 

3:00 pm to 6:00 pm (for VIPavotees)

4:00 pm to 6:00 pm (for General Admission)

The Drake Hotel

140 East Walton Place 

Chicago, IL 60611

When and where will tickets be available? 

VIP Tickets will be listed on August 3rd at 16:00 EDT on our website.  

General Admission tickets will be listed on August 4th at 12:00 EDT on our website

Are tickets transferable? 

No, tickets are non-transferable. Please email us to cancel your ticket if you are unable to attend the event. 

Will names be printed on the tickets and cross checked with identification for entry?

We do not have paper tickets for our trunk shows; instead, everyone is checked against our master list at the entrance to the venue. Those not on the list will not be admitted. There is the possibility that we might have tickets available for purchase at the door, but they are not guaranteed. If tickets will be available at the door, we will let you know 48 hours prior to the event. 

What time will the event start? 

For those with VIP tickets, the event will open at 2:00 pm.

For those with General Admission tickets, the event will open at 4:00 pm.

Will there be an after party/evening of celebration?

Who knows what will happen in Chicago! We often find ourselves tasked with packing up our trunk show and clearing the venue after an event. We do try and join our amazing Pavotees after events (we truly appreciate the invitations). Sometimes we are able to hustle and join everyone for a evening out; sometimes we become trapped by paperwork and clearing out and find ourselves in our rooms at midnight ordering chicken soup. 

Will I need to stalk for tickets? Will they sell out? 

Unfortunately, we do not know the answer to this question. Our tickets for Pavo Presents Florida did not sell out, but our tickets for Pavo Presents Asheville sold out quickly. No two trunk shows are the same!

What will be the exclusive VIP wrap for the Pavo Presents Chicago? 

The VIPavotee wrap for Chicago is Farrand Sterling in 100% cotton. 

What other wraps will be available? 

The Chicago wraps are still in development. Please be sure to join us on our Pavo Presents: Chicago event page and follow us on Instagram and Tumblr for updates! 

Is the space baby proofed and mobile baby safe?

No. Please be aware of your children and keep a close eye on them at all times as you would do in any public space.

Should we bring snacks?  

The event will be catered by the amazing staff of The Drake Hotel. Please note that neither the food nor the space are allergen-free. We do our very best to accommodate a wide variety of food preferences, but be aware that we may not be able to make changes based on your food requirements.

Does my wrappee have to be worn or may s/he come free range?

The ticket price allows entry for the attendee and one wrappee, three years old and younger. You may either wear your wrappee or your child may be mobile. 

Please be aware of your child's location at all times. The venue at the Drake Hotel is not child proofed and although we do our best to insure that the area is safe for roaming littles, we cannot guarantee that it will be fully childproofed in any reasonable manner. 

Any child over three years of age will need a general admissions ticket for the trunk show. 

Will I have to pay sales tax?  

Yes. We are required to collect and pay sales tax on all purchases made at the Pavo Presents Chicago truck show. 

May I purchase more than one VIP ticket if stalking for myself and a friend?

If you are stalking for a friend, you should put your friend's name on the ticket during checkout. 

I am flying from out of state to attend the trunk show. I’m worried that tickets will sell out. What do I do? 

If you are flying in from out of state and all tickets are sold out (VIPavotee and GA), please contact us at so that we may find a way to help you out. 

I have a couple of questions about the trunk show. Who should I contact? 

As always, you may reach us at our email: You may also join us on the Pavo Presents: Chicago event page or in Pavo Customer Appreciation, where we and past trunk show attendees will personally answer your questions.
