Exhibitor Rules, Policies, and Guidelines

  1. Exhibitors must comply with all local and state laws, including those related to collection and remission of retail sales tax.
  2. Exhibitors must be responsible for themselves and their merchandise, money, and other property during the course of a convention.
  3. Exhibitors must conduct themselves in a safe manner at all times during the convention.  This includes set-up and tear-down times.
  4. Exhibitors must be considerate of other other, and must not encroach into their neighbor’s space.
  5. Exhibitors must be aware of the designated aisles, and must not encroach into the aisles.
  6. Exhibitors are not allowed to use cheater tables, unless use thereof does not violate rules #2, #3 and/or #4 above.  A cheater table is defined as an extra table that the exhibitor brings in themselves, to add extra table space to their setup.
  7. Exhibitors are asked to contact FANCON CENTRAL with their intent to use a cheater table.
  8. Exhibitors are expected to comply with all laws while selling at a FANCON CENTRAL show.
  9. Exhibitors are expected to be on time to a show.
  10. Exhibitors must give themselves ample time before the show opens to have all of their set-up completed, before the show opens to the public.
  11. FANCON CENTRAL will not be held responsible for damage done to an Exhibitor or a Exhibitor’s merchandise or other property, unless said damage is a direct result of an action initiated by an employee of FANCON CENTRAL.
  12. FANCON CENTRAL is not responsible for the theft of any money or merchandise which may occur at any given show, or during set-up or tear-down.
  13. Placement in the room is determined by management of FANCON CENTRAL, unless the space is purchased through our website.  Verbal commitments will be honored, but actual table placement within the room will be determined in large part by when payment for said space is received.
  14. Exhibitor cancellations received before twenty (20) days prior to a show will be refunded, minus a fifteen percent (15%) cancellation fee.  Cancellations must be in written form, preferably via email.  The date of the cancellation is the date FANCON CENTRAL received written notice.
  15. If an Exhibitor cancellation is received within a fourteen-day period before a show, FANCON CENTRAL will make a good faith effort to resell the space.  It is understood that the cancelling Exhibitor will forfeit their table fees if the space cannot be resold.  A refund minus 15% will be issued if the space is successfully resold.
  16. If an exhibitor cancellation is received within ten (10)  days of a convention, the cancelling party’s booth/table fees are forfeit.
  17. Exhibitor space fees cannot be carried forward to a future show when an Exhibitor cancels.
  18. Exhibitors are not guaranteed access to electricity or internet.  Should a special need exist, it is up to the Exhibitor to make a special effort to communicate this need to us at FANCON CENTRAL.  Even then, it may not be possible to accommodate these kinds of special needs.
  19. Show cancellations – Should a show ever have to be cancelled by the management of FANCON CENTRAL, all Exhibitors will receive a refund in full of the price of their exhibitor space.  While it is unforeseeable why a show would ever need to be cancelled, we do realize that the potential is there.  We will make every effort to run advertised shows, regardless of illness or weather conditions.  However, if a need arises for us to cancel a show, all Exhibitors will be notified via telephone and/or email as soon as possible before the show, and refunds issued within a week (seven days) after the show cancellation and notification process is completed.
