Here is information for Vendors who may wish to bring their wares to Vancoufur 2022. We have several ways you can sell your wares depending on what you wish to sell, for how long, if you are new to convention vending or a long time dealer.
This year we have had to reduce the number of tables available in all our vendor spaces and space them out to ensure social distancing. We will also not be doing any half tables this year, only full tables, corner tables, or booths.
The Dealer’s Den is our main vendor hall. Vendors, artists, and crafters that apply here should have a good assortment of wares and generally be familiar with vending at conventions. You are expected to operate your table during Dealer’s Den hours, from Friday-Sunday. The process for getting a table is a competitive one, and requires an application during a specified application period, including sample images and information on what sorts of products you will be selling. Dealer’s are selected based on a number of criteria by a selection committee. More information will be on the Dealer’s Den page. If you are planning to apply, be ready to put your best products and foot forward as there are always more applications than spaces.
The Artist Alley is ideal for vendors just starting out and wanting to get their feet wet, or people who may only want to vend for a short time on specific days and don’t want a weekend commitment. The Artist Alley changes on a daily basis, so every day its exciting to check out. Reservations can be made for 1 or 2 days in advance, and there is also drop-in tables available for those who may just want to come and sell for a few hours spontaneously. Artist may sit for a few hours or the whole day. The Artist Alley operates Fri-Sun.
One night only, this late night market is a first-come first-serve vendor event which occurs in the Artist Alley space on Thursday evening. The Night market is open from 6:30pm to 11pm. Vendors may sign up for the Night Market between 6 pm – 10:30 pm. It is first come, first serve, so there is no reservations. Show up at the signup table any time between 6pm and 10:30pm, and you can get a spot if there is one available. Table fees go to charity.
