EXHIBITOR AREA FAQ
What is an exhibitor?
An exhibitor is a merchant selling or promoting branded items.
This space also includes our Partners, the convention charity, area conventions as well as interests groups such as local anime/manga clubs. We also welcome local/regional authors/artists who are strictly promoting a book/webcomic/etc. All exhibitors receive one 8′ x 30″ table and a number of badges determined by exhibitor type.
The Exhibitor area will be located in Exhibit Hall C along with our Artist Bazaar participants and the Demo Arena. If you are an entity wishing to spread the word about your event or product, keep reading! If you are a local or regional convention interested in a table exchange, please visit our Convention Exchange Program page.
