Universal FanCon

Vendor/Artist Alley Terms and Conditions 

Thank you for being part of the Universal FanCon Experience! We are thankful that you have chosen to join us on this amazing journey as we celebrate diversity and inclusion in our many fandoms! FanCon is going to be a weekend of fun with celebrities, panels, parties, music, and so much more! People are going to know exactly what we mean when we say #FanConSoLit   

We are using ShowClix Vendor Management. This allows us to streamline operations, matching vendors with booths much sooner, and allow us to to provide better customer service to you!

Once vendor and artists booths are gone, that is it, as we already know our exact limit!

Payment is due immediately. There are no longer invoices beings sent. We cannot hold booths. They are sold on a first come, first served basis. 

We reserve the right to approve/disapprove all vendors and artists based on application responses, exclusivity, sponsorship rights, license violations, and material deemed unfit for our events.

Should you have any questions, please email vendor@universalfancon.com
