The 2018 Marketplace is being sold by the table, not the "space", limited to two per business. Tables are 72"x30" hotel banquet tables and include two dealer passes plus access to electricity and free wifi. Up to four additional dealer passes per business may be purchased at $25/ea. Of course backdrops, racks, mannequins, and other freestanding fixtures are permitted, but please take close quarters with your neighbors into consideration when planning your displays. Let us know during the acceptance process if you would like to trade your banquet table for a thinner-profile 72"x18" table, or forgo use of the hotel's tables altogether.

Prohibited items include food for onsite consumption, drugs & their paraphernalia, weapons, and hazardous substances. You know the drill. No open flames. No noxious fumes. This is a family show. Etc., etc.
