Unique merchandise or offerings, professionalism and well-designed displays. If you are a first-time vendor, you are welcome to send us a picture of your setup.
What is the weapons policy?
Weapon sales and inspections are only for attendees 18 years of age and older. Live steel is prohibited in all areas of the convention except your booth or while being transported directly to an attendee’s car or hotel room. Once purchased, the attendee must immediately take all live steel to their car or hotel room, even if it is peace-bound and/or in its box. It is the seller’s responsibility to remind the purchaser of this policy. We have maintained this policy for many years without incident; please do not be the reason that we have to ban your sector of business.
If you intend to sell weapons, please confirm this with us by email before paying your invoice. Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your application.
