AnniCon Rules and Regulations
AnniCon staff welcomes all artists and vendors who wish to participate in the artist/vendor’s booths at AnniCon ‘17! The convention is held at the Anniston City Meeting Center (1615 Noble Street, Anniston, AL) on March 25, 2017. 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.
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. The presence and sale of real weapons is prohibited. In addition, questionable material (such as paraphernalia and images from groups such as KKK and Nazi or Nazi-like merchandise) are prohibited.
Pricing and Availability
Spaces are sold for $50 per standard table and two chairs or food truck space. This price is not negotiable. If you wish to choose your own table there is an additional fee of $20 ($70 total). Artists/Vendors are asked not to encroach upon their neighbor’s space unless they are given permission. Artists/Vendors that do not arrive before 10am Saturday, March 25th or do not give prior notice will forfeit their space. No-show spaces will be sold to available wait list patrons or other vendor participants at the convention at a reduced cost (cash only). All payments must be made on or before March 11, 2017, or the artist/vendor will forfeit their space. After the initial spaces are filled, AnniCon will keep a waiting list of other interested artist/vendors, to be filled either on March 15th or the day of the convention. All table purchases come with one Facebook post advertising their product. Additional posts are available for purchase at $5 a post.
Artist/Vendor registration can be cancelled until March 11, 2017. You will receive a full refund minus a $5 cancellation fee. All cancellation requests must call 256-237-8501 option 319 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spaces will be 10 foot by 6 foot and consist of an 8 foot table and two chairs. AnniCon does not have access to standing displays/curtains, so please plan on bringing your own. There are limited power outlets and you will need to bring your own extension cord. Your ability to use said cord will be dependent on its impediment of walkways and other artists/vendors. Food trucks will be allowed to park in pre-designated spaces.
Reserving Multiple Spaces
Vendors are welcome to reserve multiple spaces, limit 2. If there are extra spaces available on Saturday at opening, artist/vendor participants may purchase an extra space at a reduced cost (cost determined by AnniCon).
Hours of Operation
The artist’s/vendor’s booths will have operating hours from 10am to 9pm on Saturday, March 25th. The room will be locked prior to 8am on March 25th, and all dealers are required to be completely clear of the room by 10pm on March 25th. All items left after 10pm on March 25th become property of the Public Library of Anniston-Calhoun County. Artist/Vendors are welcome to leave early, but are advised not to leave personal materials unsupervised. AnniCon takes no personal responsibility for items stolen.
AnniCon will provide a limited amount of staffers to help artist/vendor participants set-up (8am-10am) and take down (9pm-10pm). All items left after 10pm on March 25th become property of the Public Library of Anniston-Calhoun County.
Detailed Directions are available on the website: www.annicon.com.
The address of the Anniston City Meeting Center is 1615 Noble Street, Anniston, AL 36201.
I, the Artist/Vendor, agree to refrain from selling adult material at any AnniCon event (material determined by age rating or a mutual agreement as to what items constitute as “adult”). 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, 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 security guards during AnniCon events.
