Attendees: We will be posting the final list of vendors by August 15th, 2019.
Our vendor room will be located in a ~100,000 sq foot Exhibit Hall with 190 10’x10′ booths and over 110 different vendors. They offer a variety of products catering to our anime fans along with attendees who have a wide variety of interests.
We have a wait list in place to get into the San Japan Dealer Room.
We also screen every waitlist entry that applies to research that the vendor will be a fit for our convention.
The 2019 price of our regular vendor booths start at $525 and up for a 10′ foot x 10′ foot space which include 1 8′ Table and 2 Chairs. Pipe and drape is not included.
The $525 booth rate are offered to non-corporate retail vendors only. If you are a corporate company looking to sell services please check our Sponsorship page. This includes lead-generation and non-fandom companies.
If you are a crafter or artist then click here for our Artist Alley Information. We have a heavy preference for vendors who offer retail products or have a retail setup.
We are not accepting backdrop / green screen photographers, food/drinks vendors (see notice below), any artists with fanart in their portfolios (per requested by anime industry sponsors), CBD or pipe products, tattoo artists or henna artists in the vendor room.
To answer a widely asked question our 2019 unique attendance was 18,540 overall (turnstile number: 43,000+) which draws fans from within Texas, all over the US, and even Canada.
Since moving to the HBG Convention Center, which will be our permanent location, we are not allowed to have any outside food/drink vendors due to our contract with the city of San Antonio of any type. This includes pre-packaged products.
The venue exclusive catering company, RK Group, does not offer vendors a corkage/buyout fee to sell food within the convention center. This includes services to sell/serve drinks. We can not make any exceptions. By contract, we are not allowed any outside food vendors at the San Antonio Grand Hyatt or Marriott Riverwalk.
