Excessively loud speakers, bright lights, or any other device that may disrupt customers in the Den are prohibited.

Adult art is not allowed to be publicly on display in the dealers den. Genitalia must be covered with stickers, posted notes, etc. Adult and safe for work materials should be kept separate. It is the responsibility of those dealing to ensure minors are not handling their adult content. Dealers who are found to be openly displaying adult content repeatedly will be removed from the Dealers Den with no refund.

We ask that each table is kept to maximum of two people sitting behind it. Please keep additional inventory under your table. No items may restrict customer traffic. If you feel anyone is breaking these rules, contact the Dealers Den manager or someone on staff.

The Dealers Den manager has final say on what is and isn’t allowed to be displayed in the Den. Please refer to them if you are unsure if something is allowed.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If for some reason you are unable to attend the event, please inform us as quickly as possible. It’s unfair to the dealers on the waiting list to keep them waiting until it is too late for them to make travel arrangements. We will only grant refunds if cancellation is made by November 1st, 2019. After that date, refunds are subject on our ability to resell the table.
