A deposit of 20% of your fee will be due within 1 week of your completed registration.  This fee will be non-refundable under any circumstance.  Vendor fees will not be reimbursed after a set date that will be made clear during registration.  This will include the week of the convention.  STCC does not credit vendors for subsequent conventions if a vendor cancels their registration.
  3. Booth spaces are 10 feet by 10 feet.  They include one 8 foot table and 2 chairs.  Table spaces include one 8 foot table, the space directly behind it, and 2 chairs. Booth space vendors can design and arrange the space however you’d like.  Table vendors must keep their table(s) inline with the tables around them.
