Vendor Guidelines

TABLES, BOOTHS, AND DISPLAYS

Display Space

Those with Standard Tables must keep their display to the boundaries of their table.

    • If your display must sit on the floor, such as a photo or backdrop stand, the base’s legs may not be more than 3 feet from the back of your table and must not disrupt the common walking space behind or to the sides of your space.

Number of Tables

A single artist or studio is allowed a maximum of one table or booth.

  • Unlimited booth and Pro Row Booth owners may supplement up to 1 additional table so long as it does not obstruct another artist's space and your setup allows for a proper opening to enter and exit in case of emergency.

Table Size

  • All artist table spaces come with ONE TABLE, of dimensions 6-8 feet long .These dimensions are subject to change depending on what is supplied by the decorator.

    • Due to layout restrictions, if another size table must be used it will first be offered to Unlimited and Pro Row spaces. They are at no time available for request, and will be offered at random if available.

Chairs

2 chairs are provided with each table. You may not supplement this amount with your own chairs.

Number of People Behind Each Table

Each table and booth may only have 2 people behind the table (including the common space behind the tables as well) at any one time. Each table will be given up to three Artist Alley flags to give you and your team enough valid sellers to rotate spots behind the table. Please take breaks for food and water!

Table Signage

All table signage should match the information that you registered with. Ex: If you put down on your application that you are "Studio A" but all your signs say that you are "Studio B" this will be seen as a table transfer. Signage that does not match your registration must be removed.

You may change the Studio Name we have on file ONCE. To do so you must contact us at least 30 days before the Thursday of the convention. A change is only allowed for Studio Name, no other information on the application may be changed at any time. Any attempts to exploit this as a table transfer will result in a non-refundable eviction from the Artist Alley.

  • The ONLY EXCEPTION is a LEGAL NAME CHANGE, for example if you are recently married. Please provide any relevant paperwork showing both the original registered name and the new legal name.

    • Due to the sensitive circumstances names are sometimes changed under any request for name adjustments will be kept confidentially within the exhibitions Department.

Structures

  • Any structure brought to display artwork must be of sound construction and may not extend more than 5 feet above the table or a total of 8 feet from the floor, whichever is less.

  • If any structure falls down, appears unstable, or extends above the height limit, the artist to whom it belongs will be asked to remove it by the Artist Alley staff.

  • In addition, all displays must reside within the confines of your area.

    • Unlimited booths and Pro Row Booths are restricted to the boundaries of your booth space and will be marked for your convenience.

    • Standard tables are restricted to the boundaries of your table top and up to 3 feet behind your table.

    • Displays behind your table may not impede upon other artists' areas nor disrupt traffic flow in case of emergency.

    • The corners of each island of tables are considered to be an emergency egress for artists; as such you may not use the corners for your display.

    • Transferring or selling your table space to another artist or vendor is strictly prohibited. This includes being approved through your application information and selling other non related merchandise.
