The Dealer's Room is sold out! The Waitlist begins!
Yes indeed, the Dealer's Room is currently sold out. A revised Dealer List and map will be posted shortly. But potential dealers, all hope is not lost! We have a Waitlist. For 2014, we've revised our method of handling the waitlist, due to a more granular ability to put table types up for sale.
Instructions are below, taken from the freshly-revised Dealer's Packet. Interested Dealers, please read thoroughly!
Traditionally, we see a certain amount of attrition from dealers who discover scheduling conflicts or encounter other obstacles to attending Anthrocon. Dealers who are placed on the waiting list once the room sells out usually have a very good chance of getting a table. Tables are assigned on a first-applied, first-served basis. To get onto the waiting list you must first have both an Anthrocon Membership and a Pennsylvania sales tax license -- for that we are sorry, but it has become necessary due to past abuses by other dealers.
Once you have both of these, please email us at dealers(at)anthrocon.org with 'Waitlist 2014' in the subject line, as well as the following information:
- Real Name
- Badge Number
- PA Tax ID Number
- Preffered Table type: choose Standard, Wall, Powered, or Powered Wall
- Acceptable Table type: choose any or all of Standard, Wall, Powered, or Powered Wall
- Preffered Table size: choose Half, Full, or Double
- Acceptable Table size: choose any or all of Half, Full, or Double
Note that the more acceptable table types and sizes you indicate, the more likely you will get a table. In particular we expect that Double tables are very unlikely to come available. Prices for table types, and various other pertinent information, is at http://www.anthrocon.org/dealers .
Once a table comes open, we will email the first person on the waitlist that has a matching acceptable table type. Once they indicate their willingness to purchase a table, the appropriate table type will be opened for sale at https://www.anthrocon.org/node/16109/anthrocon-2014-dealer-table-reservations. Any orders placed on a table without approval from the Dealer's Room Department will neither be charged nor fulfilled. NOTE: you may not choose "pay by check" for the waiting list! Credit card orders only.
In the event you are unable to get a table from the waitlist, any Dealer Membership will become an Attending Membership. Similarly, Dealer-Sponsors will be Sponsors and Dealer-Supersponsors will be Supersponsors. These Memberships may also be refunded until the close of Pre-registration (June 13th, 2014); please email refunds(at)anthrocon.org if a Membership refund is needed.
