I'm sure vendors are making money doing it or they would not be doing them but I just don't agree with paying anyone 40-50% any they don't even have risk. Or at least maybe if they are having an event that will bring 50k people and that is why they want a large % of sales then maybe they should guarantee the vendor an x number in gate or food sales, or they don't get that 40%.
Putting on the event is a risk in itself. They will only charge what vendors are willing to pay.

To me, the greater concern is the number of vendors at those events.
