We are a family friendly event. We give free entry after 2:30 pm. Before that our entry is just $3 per person at most events. Tune into the Facebook page to be alerted to special discounts that may be available at each event. Kids under 12 are always free. Our purpose is to spread the gospel of geekdom! We welcome all who may have an interest in comic books, sci fi, toys, video games, costumes, and other nerdy
So, you have some items sitting in the closet that you don't need anymore? We are here to help. Quad Con gives you four feet of space for FREE! This is limited to the first 8 inquiries. ALL vendor inquiries - please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Each event will have separate schedule. Please see Facebook event page for prizes, times, and details of each show.
We are an affordable show. As a result we do not have a big budget. What does this mean to you? We may not be able to accommodate your requests for electricity, wall space, or location. Vendors - do NOT be late. If you have not checked in 30 minutes prior to the event - you forfeit your space. Sorry, no refunds. We are a drama free zone. If you are causing drama - you will be asked to leave. If you are a vendor who does not get along with your neighbors - you will not be allowed back to our events.
PLEASE help us get the word out! This is as simple as sharing info about our event on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Odds are if you want to go....your friends do to. And they may need to know about the event! So spread the word - it helps more than you know. Here is the Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/coolstuffquadcon/
It depends. We pass the cost of the room rental on to you. So, if the convention hall charges us $3000, then vendors have to pay more than if we reserved a room that is $1,000.
Typically we have 50-75 tables at each event. We allow a maximum rental of 4 tables at each event. Sorry, no discount for renting multiple tables at this time. We have VERY affordable rates. Shop around and you will find that Quad Con gives you the most bang for your buck.
We allow about 8 FREE spots for first time vendors or artists at each event. These free spots are first come first reserved. Free spot will consist of and 8 foot table that you will SPLIT with another artist or first time vendor. This means you can NOT have backing display. You can ONLY have yourself behind the table. You can not choose your location. If you are in need of a Free spot - email email@example.com and we will let you know if there is availability.
Each location we rent is different. Some places have tables, other places do not. Please understand that we may have to RENT tables from a party supply location. This means you will either have to rent tables from us (we do not make any money off the table rentals) or you can bring your own tables.
Typically our vendor spots are 8.5 feet wide x 8 feet deep. We do NOT sell 10 x 10 spots at most locations. One of the reasons our prices are so affordable is that we do NOT have 10 x 10 spots. Please understand we will not have pipe and drapes either.
Quad Con is a Drama Free Zone. If you are a vendor who upsets customers or fellow vendors.... You will not be asked to come back. We are out to bring positivity to the Nerd World. Negativity will not be tolerated. This includes social media.
Be the first to hear about new arrivals, popular comics, and upcoming sales.
