Welcome, prospective dealers and visitors alike! A staple of any furry convention, the Dealers’ Den is where you can find various artists, vendors, and crafters offering an expansive variety of goods for sale, and where you can even stop by to meet that famous fur you’ve talked to or simply admired online in person. As with any convention, ACFI offers a cozy and friendly atmosphere for conducting business as a vendor, and for socializing for those who simply want to drop by and shoot the breeze.
About the Dealers’ Den
ACFI’s Dealers’ Den is located in the La Habana room of the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, and with two entrances and an in-room bathroom area provides all the amenities and ease-of-access one could ask for! In addition to a public-consumption area, the Den also features a closely-monitored Adults-only area, so parents can rest assured their little ones’ wandering eyes don’t see anything untoward. And with a spacious floor area and abundant tables for vendors, there should be both plentiful options and plentiful elbow room, even during peak hours.
About the Artists’ Alley
The Artists’ Alley of any convention is a lively, open-space venue where artists and (sometimes) craftsmen who don’t wish to or are not capable of selling bulk wares can still conduct business. Here you can find all manner of artists showcasing their talents, and for a fair price can even commission them on the spot! While ACFI does not and cannot guarantee the delivery of such commissions or the fair and proper conduction of business, we provide the space for a furry convention staple. If you’re an arts and crafts enthusiast, you’d be remiss to give this event a pass.
To apply for a table as a vendor for the Artists’ Alley or the Dealers’ Den, you need only to complete the vendor’s application below and your application will be processed; simple, easy, quick. Opening February 1st and closing February 28th of 2018, the vendor process is not first-come, first-serve. Dealers’ Den tables will be determined following a short jury period. Artists’ Alley tables are granted via a lottery system in order to remain as fair as possible (hence, applying for a vendor space in the Dealers’ Den or Artists’ Alley does not guarantee you will be approved for one). Please note that this form allows you to apply for a vendor’s table in the Artists’ Alley or Dealers’ Den, but it is not a registration to the convention! You or your agent must still register to attend the convention in order to conduct business in our vending areas. Note! You do not have to pay for your registration in order to apply for a table in the vending areas, and you may always cancel your registration at a later date.
All tables are 6′ x 3′ (72″ x 36″). Dealers’ Den tables are $75 for the entire weekend. Artists’ Alley tables are $10 per day via the lottery. For a list of items you’ll need in order to complete your application, and for information regarding additional fees and regulations, please see the vendor rules page.
