Vending and Advertising at Con of the North 2015

Vendor Spaces

We are now accepting applications for Vendor space for Con of the North 2015! 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.

Application Process

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):

  • Vendor/product type and match to the convention.
  • Amount of space requested and match to available space.
  • History of vending with the convention.

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.

Selection Timeline

  • July 1, 2014: Vendor Priority Application window opens
