Dealers’ Room Registration

DEALER’S ROOM APPLICATIONS

The DemiCon Dealers’ Room capacity is 28 table spaces. For DemiCon 32 we will be holding a juried selection for our vendors. This means that all prospective dealers will need to submit a Dealers’ Room application to be considered for having a space for vending at DemiCon 32.

Dealer tables are $35 per table (strict limit of 3 tables), and a convention membership will be required for workers at your table.

Dealer Room Application

DUE DATE: Applications for Dealers’ Room must be received before 11:59 PM Central Time on Sunday, October 31, 2020 Friday, February 5, 2021.

Selections will be made during the two weeks following. An email will be sent advising if they have been selected or if they are being placed on the waiting list.

Dealers are required to pay for both convention memberships and for dealers’ table spaces. If selected, your selection is not final until we receive payment for the membership and table spaces. The confirmation email will include a summary of the application to confirm information. Once confirmed, you will be contacted with payment details.

The acceptance confirmation email you receive will contain a payment deadline. If you do not make your payment by the deadline, we will open your table space to the next vendor on our waiting list.

It is no secret that DemiCon would not be what it is without the help and support of all our vendors! As a small token of our gratitude, all dealers will receive the benefit of the early registration price of $45/adult. This early registration price will be extended to yourself and any additional employees needed to staff your dealer’s table. The price of your registration does not include the price of the tables. The price per table will be $35. We do have a limit of three (3) tables per dealer. We hope you can come join us at DemCon 32, Super Manga Graphic Novels Comics Animation.

DEALERS’ ROOM RULES & GUIDELINES

Permit and Sales Tax: The state of Iowa requires that all dealers collect and remit Iowa sales tax on dealer table purchases. Please have your tax permit with you during the convention as you will be asked to provide this information.

Weapons: All edged weapons and other sharp, breakable, or potentially hazardous merchandise must be displayed in a safe and appropriate manner. Do not sell swords, knives, etc., to minors without the permission of the minor’s parent.

Display: Please display any adult-themed merchandise in a tasteful manner.

Safety: No open flames allowed (e.g. no burning of candles, incense, illudim 348, lit canons, etc.). Do not “flow” your merchandise and displays into the aisles or other dealer spaces.

Sound: Music and video are permitted in your dealer area. However, please keep the sound to a volume that does not annoy your neighbors. If it is too loud, you will be asked to turn it down.

Food Vending: Dealers cannot sell food items because of hotel regulations on corkage and food vending.

Membership: DemiCon membership is not included with your table(s). Every person who will work your table must have a membership, and badges must be worn at all times.

Set-Up and Tear-Down: You must vend all three days of DemiCon. You must be set up and ready for business on Friday at 2 p.m. and continue to conduct business during all of the Dealer’s Room hours until 2 p.m. Sunday. You cannot dismantle your tables until Sunday after 2 p.m.

Host a Room Party

GUIDELINES FOR PARTY HOSTS:

The legal drinking age in Iowa is 21.   This means that your birthday must be on or before April 30, 2000, in order for you to consume alcohol.  Minors caught with alcohol or adults caught serving alcohol to minors need to be aware of the consequences of their actions.  Please drink responsibly and act accordingly.

When posting signage for your party please use blue painters tape and be mindful not to damage the room or its contents.

If you have any issues, questions or concerns during your party, look for the roaming Rangers (identified by the bright yellow/green vests) or the Room Party Department Head.

Please post or otherwise provide information regarding potential allergy issues (nuts, etc.).

Masquerade & Cosplay Participant Registration

Part of the fun of any con is the freedom to dress up as your favorite character, or archetype, or as some completely unique and original concept spawned from your own very creative brain. We at DemiCon like to encourage that freedom further by offering you the chance to show off your clever ideas and talented handiwork through our costume contest events.

Masquerade and Cosplay Contest

On con Saturday, the mainstage masquerade and cosplay event lets you thrill our audience with not only your spectacular costume creations, but your skilled (or not-so-skilled – we don’t care, we love just watching everyone try!) mini-performance.

Masquerade & Cosplay Sign-up

If you have questions or need more information contact masquerade@demicon.org or join our Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/demiconmasqueradeandcosplay/.

Hall Costume Contest

On con Friday, the Hall Costume Contest allows you to immortalize your amazing apparel via our fabulous official photographer’s portrait service (it’s free!), while our mystery judges mingle among the attendees to quietly select the best-of-the-best.
