MisCon 33 Merchants

MisCon Merchant Information

Table spaces, pricing, and policies have changed this year! Please read this page carefully.

If you have any questions .

NEW THIS YEAR: Due to the high number of applications, we've created six new table spaces in the lobby that are exclusively for book publishers! Find more information below.

Application Process

Applications are accepted until midnight on January 31st. Starting February 1st, we'll begin the selection process and email you with a decision within 2-3 weeks. If accepted, you have until April 15th to send full payment, or you will forfeit your space. This is also the deadline for receiving a full refund if you decide to cancel.

Merchant applications are approved based on quality and originality of goods. If you have a unique business, you're more likely to have your application accepted. If we accept several similar merchants, we'll do our best to place you away from each other.

We want to help in any way we can, so let us know on your application if you have any special requests or accommodations.

Apply Now!

All attending merchants are expected to abide by the MisCon Merchants Policies.
