AnniCon Rules and Regulations
AnniCon staff welcomes all artists and vendors who wish to participate in the artist/vendor’s booths at AnniCon ‘18! The convention is held at the Anniston City Meeting Center (1615 Noble Street, Anniston, AL) on February 24, 2018. We ask that all artists/vendors please be respectful of decisions that the staff may have to make concerning the artist/vendor’s booths the day of the convention. We are constantly working to make the con experience great for everyone and may have to make changes in the initial plans. There will be dedicated staffers available exclusively to participating artists/vendors. They will be identified to the artists/vendors at the convention, so if there should be any questions/problems, please contact these staffers. We will try our best to prevent problems from occurring, but we cannot plan for every contingency. Should a problem arise with another artist/vendor, please speak to a staffer. AnniCon reserves the right to deny an artist/vendor space to anyone should a problem occur.
Please remember it is the responsibility of all artists/vendors to compile with local and state laws. All food vendors MUST have a copy of their City of Anniston Business license and Health Department Permit. We ask that you only use masking tape or pins in fabric panels (if available) for temporary room decorations. Please do not use staples, nails, tacks or other forms of tape. Do not place stickers or paints, or deface venue materials in any permanent fashion. Signs, banners and flyers may not be posted outside of your table space. We do not allow the open sales of any type of adult-deemed material (not limited to DVDs, VHSs, pornographic images/artwork). No adult material may be viewed, sold or distributed, and we require that vendors not bring adult-themed material at all. AnniCon reserves the right to judge the acceptability of all displays. In addition, questionable material (such as paraphernalia and images from groups such as KKK and Nazi or Nazi-like merchandise) are prohibited.
The presence and sale of firearms and explosives is prohibited. It is the responsibility of vendors/artists to secure all weapons prior to sale to prevent theft or injury from mishandling. Any weapons not in compliance with the AnniCon Weapons Policy must be peace bonded or secured in a vehicle or off Anniston Meeting Center premises after sale; this is ultimately the responsibility of the buyer, but we ask that you help us enforce these policies by reminding your customers about our weapons policy.

I agree to respect other artist/vendors and not encroach upon their given space (barring extenuating circumstances). I agree to adhere to all venue rules and regulations, outlined in the Vendor's Contract. I understand that the amount that I pay only guarantees the stated number of space(s). I agree to adhere to the posted Artist’s/Vendor's hours, and absolve AnniCon/Spirit of Anniston, the Anniston City Meeting Center and all volunteers of any responsibility for theft or destruction of merchandise. I agree to adhere to the venue policy of hanging materials. I agree to refrain from selling non-legitimate materials (not limited to bootlegs or fansubs).
We, the con administration, reserve the right to remove any artist/vendor for any reason listed above, dearth of payment, or inappropriate behavior. We will make good faith attempts to prevent theft and destruction of artist/vendor property by providing a safety team during AnniCon events.
