Dealer Room Registration


The Space

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.

Merch Vendors

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 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.

Artist Alley

Crafters & Artists

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 vendors (see notice below), general services company, 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.

Food Vendors

Since moving to the HBG Convention Center, which will be our permanent location, we are not allowed to have any outside food vendors due to our contract with the city of San Antonio. The venue exclusive catering company, RK Group, does not offer vendors a corkage/buyout fee to sell food within the convention center. 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.

    For artists and crafters we heavily advise to consider looking at our Artist Alley Info Page which tables are over half the cost of a vendor booth. We open up applications in Feburary.

    Starting for our 2018 convention our sponsors are asking us to no longer accept primarily fanart artists into our vendor room but we will consider original artwork artists.
