Dealers’ Room

MARCON 2022 DEALER ROOM INFO!

Important Notes:

  • MARCon is a juried dealer’s Room.  Each year we evaluate the applications and try to provide the biggest variety of choice to our attendees. 
  • Being previously chosen to vend at MARCon does not guarantee you will be chosen to vend in 2022.
  • If you were juried in for 2020, did not request a refund, and decided to roll your booth over to 2022, please complete the new form and email a reminder to mardeal@marcon.org. Dealer’s room staff may change every year and sometimes we forget.

Payment for your tables MUST be received at paypal@marcon.org, no later than  Sunday, April 3rd, 2022.  If you were accepted into the dealer’s room and have not paid by  Sunday, April 3rd, 2022, you will forfeit your spot and be moved to the end of the waitlist.   If you have already paid for your tables, PLEASE email mardeal@marcon.org so that we can verify with the Treasurer that your payment has been received.
If you paid for 2020 and carried your booth over to 2022 and plan to attend, please complete the new form and email a reminder mardeal@marcon.org.

The application for Marcon 57 (2022) is available here:

https://forms.gle/mFfiK9WjuGCaAi5J9

It should take you between 5-20 minutes to complete depending on how fast you type and how many helpers you have.

This form does not issue invoices or payment requests.  You can be proactive and send your payments to paypal@marcon.org, or you can wait until we have the chance to review applications and send you an invoice.  If you pre-pay and are not accepted into the Dealer’s Room, your fees will be refunded.

Dealer’s room staff may change every year.  Please make sure to include the following information.   If you do not include details about your business, we will assume your application is spam or a bot and remove you from the list.  You may still be asked to provide pictures of your stock if the description is vague or we are unfamiliar with your booth.

·         Write up a full summary of your wares.  We are a juried dealer’s room and will not have space for everyone that applies.  The current staff may not know who you are and what you sell. Fill this application out as if you were applying to a convention you’ve never been to before.

·         If you have special needs of any sort, you need to add it to the form.  This includes personal needs as well as any special space requirements your booth may have:  Height over 8′, grid displays, tables on the back wall, etc.  Remember that staff changes and you may not be dealing with the same people year to year.

·         Assume the next dealer room chair doesn’t know you.  Marcon staff changes from year to year.  You are not guaranteed the new Dealer’s Room staff will know who you are or how long you have been attending Marcon.

Pricing
Pricing for tables will be as follows:
One table $70
Two tables $140
Three tables $210 (Limited availability)

Discounted Dealer Room badges are $30 per person per table.  You may add one additional person beyond your table total.  i.e. Maximum 2 people with one table, 3 with two tables, and 4 with three tables.

Spaces/table sizes

Due to the reduced size of the new Dealer’s room, we have reduced the maximum number of tables to 3.  There will be limited numbers of 3 table spots available.   In order to get as many different vendors in as possible (which makes the room more attractive to attendees, thus increasing potential sales), we ask that everyone go with the smallest number of tables possible.   

All tables will be 6’ in length.  

One table should get you an area of about 6’ x 6’ with about 8-10’ of height from the ground.  If you need a space larger than 6′ deep, please email Mardeal@marcon.org.

If you were in the Marcon 2021 dealer room, do not assume you will be in the same table spot for 2022 as we hope to have more space available.
