ADMISSION POLICY REMINDER
Vendors + helpers MUST have convention badges in addition to their artists alley badges.
Notify firstname.lastname@example.org on how many additional helpers you will need to have badges for so we can notify the registration bronies. (limit 4 including yourself)
It bears repeating that all vendors and helpers need to purchase a regular convention admission ($65) through the meetup group.
An artists alley badge is not the same as a convention badge! You will need both.
Get your convention ticket here :www.meetup.com/BronyCon/
Click the RSVP button to pay for convention admission via Paypal. You can pay for more than one person at a time.
BADGE PICK UP
When you pick up your badges, go to the booth for Artist/Vendor/Special registration.

RAFFLES / GAMES REMINDER
Raffles for money are not permitted at the convention. Any raffles drawings or giveaways must be 100% FREE to participants with no tickets, tokens, or donations to be given or purchased.
You are allowed to keep a mailing list sign up sheet.
Silent Auctions are permitted, and we would prefer you to keep the bid amount sheet on display
(bidders' names may be omitted/disguised to protect privacy)
No food or beverages can be sold or given away at Artists' Alley tables.
What you consume in your own space is your own business, but it is considered poor convention etiquette to eat and drink at your neighbors' tables! Our convention center has in-house food services for your convenience and the venue encourages us to make use of them. We vendors spend a lot of time working and it's important to stay healthy and hydrated! Gum, hard candies, lozenges and mints are always nice to have in your pockets, in case your mouth gets dry from talking.
TABLES LAYOUT AND SETUP
Tables are 6' long by 30"* wide. They come with table cloths and 2 chairs. Convention is providing basic signage with your business name and table number.
Do not put anything on the floor in front of your table. There isn't a height limit on displays, however all table set-ups/displays must be sturdy and only occupy your own tabletop space. At no time are free standing displays allowed to be set up in front or to the side of a table. All displays are to be on TOP of your table, or behind your table. If a display falls down, or is deemed by convention staff to be unsafe, you will be asked to take it down.
BOOTHS LAYOUT & SETUP
Booths measure 8 feet x 10 feet with a tall draped wall along one side and a short drape on two additional side. They come with one 8' long table with table cloth and 2 chairs. Convention is providing basic signage with your business name and booth number. You are permitted to re-position the table and customize your floor space to your liking, but safety first! Do not put anything on the aisle in front of your booth. There isn't a height limit on displays, however all set-ups/displays must be sturdy and only occupy your own booth space. At no time are free standing displays allowed to be set up outside of a booth. All displays are to be within your booth space.
If a display falls down, or is deemed by convention staff to be unsafe, you will be asked to take it down.
YES you may hang stuff off the pipe + drape backing to your booth.
**** DO NOT pin, tape or otherwise ATTACH THINGS TO THE DRAPES. ****
If you have a banner to hang, I recommend bringing some drape hooks /sign hooks / c-clamps to hang over the pipe, and then some fishing line or string to support the sign.
You can reinforce the top of a cloth banner to make it straight by sewing a dowel into the top edge, or folding it over a dowel and duct taping it.
Feel free to bring additoinal tables and chairs from home if you need.
You'd be surprised what you can do with PVC pipe and connectors from Home Depot. Make yourselves some collapsable hat/coat/shirt/plushie racks!
Wanna even cheaper idea? Coat hangers, a stack of books and a broom handle. Watch and laugh your tail off! www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFPZov…
IF YOU REQUESTED ELECTRICITY:
Pack an extension cord.
MAKING MONEY? HAVE CHANGE READY!
Now is a good time to run to the bank and get a wad of small currency to use as change.
Depending on what you expect to sell, I recommend bringing between $50 and $200 worth of small bills, $1.00 and $5.00 especially! Might want to get a roll of quarters too.
Be prepared for every one of your customers wanting to pay with a $20.
Especially if you sell inexpensive items like stickers, charms, pins.
Non-US bronies, please get in touch with email@example.com if you need help with currency exchange. ^_~
If you're taking Square for payment, please be aware that WiFi might not work in every area of the convention. You might have to move a few feet or walk into the hallway for a signal.
OK before this gets TL;DR I'm stopping here ^_^
Pony ON folks! See you in two weeks

* thank you tsitra! I left out a ". LMAO a 30 foot table, now that would be a sight!
