Vending and Advertising at Con of the North 2017
We are now accepting applications for Vendor space for Con of the North 2017! Vendors will be located around the perimeter of the Regency Ballroom, which is the convention's largest event space. The ballroom is open during convention hours: Friday - Noon to 2 a.m.; Saturday - 8 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday - 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Vendors do not need to be open for all convention hours listed. No one is permitted to stay in the room after the doors are locked for the night.
We will have a priority window during which vendors submit applications. When this window closes, vendors will be reviewed and selected based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, (and in no particular order):
Priority will be given to vendors who have also submitted scheduled games by the event submission deadline.
Once selections have been made, vendors will be contacted and the payment window will open. After the payment deadline, unpaid space will be forfeit, and any remaining open space will be made available for application.
Note: All spaces will be assigned by Con of the North. While we make every attempt to accommodate requests, we reserve the right to schedule space in the way that best serves the needs of the convention.
Please see the Vendor Information and Application Packet for more details, options, and 2017 rates.
Each vendor space include a rectangular table (6' x 2.5'), wall space behind it, and 2 convention badges. The deadline for reserving vendor tables is September 30, 2016.
Cost: $100 per space.
