Map of the Place
6’x8′ (purple): $170
10’x10′ (pink): $330
Odd Shape (green): $300*
6’x16′ (blue): $320**
3’x8′ (yellow): $90
* Green booths are at least twice the size of a 6’x8′ booth. Snatch one up before they’re gone.
* Blue booths are the same size as two purple booths, but you get a discount because they are partially obstructed by a pillar.
Reserve Your Booth
To reserve a booth (or multiple booths) please fill out the form below. If you prefer to pay by check or arrange some other method please email Andy and we’ll work it out.
Check the Vendor List before picking your booth number to make sure it’s not already reserved. If you happen to choose a booth that is already reserved, we will do our best to get you a booth in the same general area. Also, please familiarize yourself with the policies and practices listed on this page before signing up (especially if you are food vendor).
**Due to the large number of vendors who sign up for a booth and never send a payment, we are no longer able to hold booths without payment. Please submit your payment WITH your signup form. (If you are mailing a check, please mail it as close to submitting your form as possible.) **If your name is not on the vendor list or if it has a star, we have not received your full payment.
Tables and Chairs
To keep costs down, we are offering vendors the opportunity to bring their own tables to Oddmall. We have plenty of chairs, so don’t worry about those. Every booth includes two chairs, but if you want more just ask onsite and we shall provide. Tables, however, are another story. You can either bring your own or rent them from the convention center (using the registration form below) for $10 each.
The convention center charges a $60 fee per booth for electrical hookup. I suggest you get yourself one of those portable cell phone chargers they sell everywhere for like ten bucks. If you need a real electric hookup please reserve it using the form below.
Important note about vendor spaces
Each booth will be mapped out prior to setup. Vendors are required to stay within their booth’s footprint. Walkways are measured ahead of time to comply with safety and fire codes as determined by the fire marshal. Spilling into the walkways can become a serious issue that can result in injury and/or fines. Taking up space in your neighbor’s booth is not allowed without their consent.
Vendors are NOT permitted to call out across other booths or walkways to people passing by to try and get them to come to your booth, offer them free samples, get them to sign up for raffles, hawk your wares at them, etc. We’ve had several complaints and this behavior will no longer be tolerated since it causes customers and visitors to actively avoid the area all together and ruins the experience for everyone. Vendors doing this may not be invited back to future Oddmalls.
Policies & Practices
The Oddmall Art Fair is a juried show. This means vendors must pass a very simple screening process to ensure their products meet the quality standards of the show and they aren’t presenting the same products as a dozen other vendors. To see if you pass the jurying process simply email a sample or three of your work (72 dpi jpegs, please) or a link to your website to Andy at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you get confused and register for a booth without first submitting samples, don’t worry; if you don’t pass the jurying process for whatever reason I’ll refund your booth fee and let you know why. We’ll still be friends.
The Oddmall Comic & Toy Expo is not juried. Anyone who peddles wares related to comics, games, toys, books, puzzles, pop culture, movies, tv, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, or anything geeky or unusual is invited to participate.
Refunds and Cancellations
Booth fees are nonrefundable unless the reason for the refund is our fault. Please make certain you can attend the show before you submit your registration.
Vendors are encouraged to decorate their booths in whatever fashion they desire. Backdrops and hanging walls are permitted. You may bring additional tables and fixtures with you, if you like, but all display materials must fit within your allotted space.
By registering as an Oddmall vendor you are giving us permission to use images of you and your artwork in our advertising and on our website. You may opt out of this by emailing Krystal at Krystal@muthaoithcreations.com, although I’m not sure why you’d want to. It’s free advertising for you, after all.
News and Updates
To make sure you’re up to date on all of Oddmall’s happenings – such as important announcements, contests and giveaways, and more – please sign up for our newsletter.
We’ll do our best to make sure you get the booth you reserve, but Oddmall reserves the right to adjust booth assignments as needed based on availability, unforeseen changes in room layout, electric access, etc. Due to the topography and geometry of the various rooms, objects such as pillars and scrunched up accordion walls make it difficult to accurately depict the precise room layouts. The maps represent approximations of the actual layout and no claim of absolute accuracy is made. Please include a first, second, and third choice of booth numbers.
Billing statements will say “Con on the Cob” as the account name. Con on the Cob is a gaming nerd convention that shares the Oddmall account, not a confidence trick, in case you were worried. Both entities are hosted by Mutha Oith Creations.
A Few More Rules
We try not to throw too many rules at you. The whole point of Oddmall is to have a great time, meet some great people, and hopefully nab yourself a fat stash of clams. There are, however, a few rules implemented by the venue that I must familiarize you with. Again, these are the rules of the convention center, not the rules of Oddmall, and I’d change them if I could.
Unfortunately, because the Knight Center serves food, we are not allowed to have any vendors who sell food of any type (unless sized in portions that are 2oz or less), even prepackaged food for consumption elsewhere. Vendors do have the option of paying a $500 fee (to the convention center) for the right to serve food, and they have promised to negotiate this matter on a case by case basis. If you are a vendor interested in serving pre-packaged, small portions of food or snacks for consumption elsewhere, please let me know and I’ll see what we can arrange.
Food items in portion sizes of 2 oz or less are allowed at no extra fee if they are given for free or are samples of a product that can be delivered later. Similarly, prepackaged items that must be prepared elsewhere (such as cake mixes) are all good.
If you have larger items or more stuff than you can carry by hand or with a two-wheeled dolly, you will need to unload in the loading dock, which is located at the Northeast corner of the building. Just pull in and follow the instructions the facilitator relates. He will help you unload your car onto a cart, then take the cart to your booth while you park. You may either park in the convention center lot for $3 per day or anywhere else downtown, including the parking garage across the street, for FREE.
If you do not need to use a cart, you may carry your items through the rear doors. We will have volunteers and staffers on hand to help you find your booth. There is an elevator if you need it. There is also an elevator even if you don’t need it.
Booth Registration Form
*Please note: All rented tables and electric MUST be purchased and paid for no later than 2 weeks prior to the show. We WILL NOT have tables and/or electric available to add to your booth the day of the show.
If the form tries to tell you that your “Email address is invalid”, please clear your browser’s cache and cookies and try again. If the problem persists, please send the same information via email to email@example.com and we will send an invoice via paypal.
This is the REGISTRATION FORM. We will add your name to the vendor list once we receive it (Krystal updates Monday-Wednesday of each week). If payment does not accompany your submission form, we will send an invoice via Paypal and your booth will have a * by your name. No spaces are guaranteed until they are paid in full – We cannot promise we will hold your booth space without full payment, especially if the show begins to sell out. This is NOT a jury form! Send jury submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are on the vendor list (without a *), you are confirmed.
We will send detailed booth confirmations as we get folks situated.
