We allow all vendors to participate in the events of Crypticon. The VIP Dinner/Party will require an extra fee and there maybe some restrictions for special events. If attending any of the Crypticon events, the vendor/artist tables need to remain manned during dealer room hours.
VENDORS TABLES ARE $225 each and are 8-foot tables with 8 square feet of vendor space with two chairs. They will be located in the main ballroom. Multiple tables are also available. Tables are reserved on a first-paid, first-served basis. CORNER VENDORS TABLES ARE $300 each and are 2x 8-foot tables with 8 square feet of vendor space with two chairs.

They will be located in the main ballroom. Tables are reserved on a first-paid, first-served basis.
