Dealers are an important part of Close Quarters! There is no conventional "dealers room" - the entire con takes place in a single room, and dealers will be in that room, around the edges. They are therefore able to participate in the panels, watch the vid show, etc., while still manning their tables. It's a relaxed environment that permits dealers to be part of the entire con experience while selling their wares.
Due to space limitations and the specialized, single-fandom nature of the con, dealer merchandise in the con room is limited to Pros zines and other Pros-related items. We will accept as many Pros-related dealers as we are able to accomodate, and if there is room, we will also accept dealers of non-fannish items, like jewelry. We want to keep the focus of the con as much as possible on Pros, but zine dealers are free to take preorders for zines in other fandoms and have them under their tables, and anyone can sell anything they want out of their hotel rooms.
A full table costs $45.00, and a half table costs $25.00. In addition, dealers will have to purchase a membership in the con.
