Exhibitors

There’s no question that one of the best aspects of Comicpalooza is the vendors at the show. Each year the Exhibit Hall is filled with incredible artists, craftsman, and inventors. Merchants selling popular collectibles, wearables, toys, and more are featured throughout the aisles, some are new but many return year after year. Anchoring the floor on each end is our popular Maker’s Space and Celebrity autograph and photograph areas. Comicpalooza is now accepting applications for the 2019 event to be held May 10-12. This year, we're allowing vendors to select their own booth, hurry though, the show floor is filling up fast. 

Artist Alley is full. Feel free to complete the application to get on the waiting list. All applicants will be notified if additional spaces come available.

What is the difference between an Artist Alley booth and a Dealer's Room booth?

Artist Alley is for people who are selling original product they create. Dealer’s Room booths are for those who are reselling goods, such as board games, comic books, clothing, etc.

Who do I contact for questions about purchasing a booth in the Exhibit Hall?

Please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com with any questions regarding a booth purchase and include the subject line ATTN: Purchasing a Booth.

How do I request to be a vendor or have an artist table?

Complete the application on this page. If the application is not available and you are a new vendor, please put your name on the waiting list and we will contact you when applications for next year’s event are available.

Do you offer discounts or early registration for exhibitors who have attended Comicpalooza previously?

We do not offer discounts for previous vendors but we do our best to notify those in good standing with the organization about early registration opportunities.

Is there an information packet for vendors and prospective vendors?

Yes, please check our Exhibitor Brochure here. An Exhibitor packet will also be provided to all vendors who have purchased a booth. If you have specific questions that are not answered there, please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com.

I am having difficulty with purchasing a booth. Who do I contact for assistance?

Please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com and include the issue as well as the booth # you are interested in purchasing in the body of the email. Use the subject line ATTN: Booth Purchase Help.

How do I verify that my purchase of a booth was successful?

You will receive an email confirmation from GrowTix.

Do you provide complimentary Artist Alley tables?

No.

Do I need to register as a guest to get a booth in Artist Alley?

No.

Are there booth locations or exhibitor options beyond the Artist Alley and Dealer's Room?

Not for general exhibitors or artists. The Maker's Space is designated for specialty groups involved in STEM, robotics, crafts, indie games, etc. and not the sell of goods. If interested, please complete the Maker’s Space Application.

How do I correct information for my booth (wrong credit card, wrong address, etc.)?

Please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com with the subject line ATTN: Booth Info Change.

Can we exchange product or advertising for booth space?

Possibly. Please contact marketing@comicpalooza.com with your proposal. There are a limited number of booths available.

What are the booth configuration options for the Exhibit Hall?

Booths are available as 10’ x 10’ spaces and 10’ x 20’ endcaps. You can purchase more than one booth in an area to create a larger footprint. Please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com to verify larger configurations are implemented as you intend.

May I hand out fliers at my booth?

Yes, as long as you are legally allowed to hand out the fliers and the information on them pertains to your business.

Do I need a Texas Sales Tax ID number?

Yes, otherwise you will not be allowed to sell anything.

When do you need my Texas Sales Tax ID number?

We prefer to receive it when you complete the application but you have up to 30 days before the convention to email it to exhibitors@comicpalooza.com. Please include the name of your company when sending it.

My information is listed incorrectly on the website and/or app. How do I get it corrected?

Please contact exhibitors@comicpalooza.com with the subject line ATTN: Booth Info Change.

Do you have a waiting list once Artist Alley and/or the Dealer's Room have sold out?

Yes, if the Exhibit Floor is still open you can complete an application for either but you will not be able to purchase. If additional booths become available before the show, all approved applicants will be notified. Once Exhibit Floor sales are closed a sign up form will be made available for next year’s event. Those who have purchased a booth, completed an application, or put their name on a waiting list in the past and are in good standing with the show, should be notified when booth sales are opening the following year. If your company fits in one of those categories there is no need to put your name on the new waiting list.

How do I cancel my booth? Do I get a refund?

We do not offer refunds on booths but if you will no longer be able to attend, you can cancel your booth by emailing exhibitors@comicpalooza.com with the subject line ATTN: Booth Cancellation.

How do I purchase additional badges? And how much are they?

Once available, a link will be provided to Exhibitors for purchasing additional passes in advance of the show at a reduced price. Passes can only be purchased for booth staff. Additional Exhibitor badges may also be purchased at a higher price the Thursday before the show through noon Saturday at the Hall D Lobby Exhibitor Check-In Desk or online.
