Table reservations for Dealers are $80, and each include two full day badges, one for the dealer and one for a helper (2 full day attendee badges with table purchase).


What is the difference between a dealer and an artist? An artist is only allowed to sell art that they, themselves, made. That includes fanart or crafts. A dealer, on the other hand, is allowed to sell a variety of things, like anime merchandise such as DVDs, official art books, wall scrolls, games, cards and an assortment of other things that the dealer might not have necessarily made themselves. That's the only difference. There is no separate "artist alley" and "dealers hall," both artists and dealers are in the same hall and both have the same table size.
