OH SNAP! We totally sold out the Mother of All Marketplaces in record time last year. Luckily, there are plenty of spots throughout the venue where an enterprising business person such as yourself might enjoy setting up a booth. To facilitate such an arrangement, we are EXTREMELY PROUD to offer an assortment of ancillary booths. Most of these are in the atrium near the gaming tables or in the hotel lobby. The exact location will be determined once we set up on site, but we’ll do our best to accommodate your preferences (however bizarre they may be).
Of course, since these booths are not located inside of the vendor hall (which locks up at night) ancillary vendors will be responsible for moving their items to a safe location each evening (either a hotel room, the Mother of All Marketplaces, a car, or wherever else makes you happy). That’s why they are LESS EXPENSIVE than our already incredibly affordable vendor booths (only $80 and they include a 4-Day convention badge).
Ancillary vendors are responsible for bringing their own tables.
Wanna be a vendor at Con on the Cob? Sure you do. We still have several spaces available and the perks couldn’t be better. For the LOW LOW PRICE OF ONLY $90 ($80 for an ancillary booth) you get the following:
- A 6’x8′ booth space
- A 6’x30″ table
- Two chairs
- Free electricity and wireless internet access
- One (1) CotC registration badges (+$20 for a second badge)
To reserve your booth(s) simply fill out this short form, click the “SUBMIT” button below, and follow the steps presented to pay through PayPal. For more information, or if you’d rather pay by check, please email Andy.
Con on the Cob does not offer refunds unless the reason for the cancellation is our fault. Booths are transferable to a similar vendor, however.
Important note about vendor spaces
Each booth will be mapped out prior to setup. Vendors are required to stay within their booth’s footprint. Walkways are measured ahead of time to comply with safety and fire codes as determined by the fire marshal. Spilling into the walkways can become a serious issue that can result in injury and/or fines. Taking up space in your neighbor’s booth is not allowed without their consent.
Vendors are NOT permitted to call out across other booths or walkways to people passing by to try and get them to come to your booth, offer them free samples, get them to sign up for raffles, hawk your wares at them, etc. We’ve had several complaints and this behavior will no longer be tolerated since it causes customers and visitors to actively avoid the area all together and ruins the experience for everyone. Vendors doing this may not be invited back to future Oddmalls.
