Dealers FAQ

Q: When will we be able to set up?

A: Set-up would start no later than 5 p.m. on Friday.

Q: What will the hours be for the Dealers Room?

A: Dealers Room hours are not finalized, but are generally along these lines:

  • Friday 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. (The break is so we are not competing against the Masquerade)
  • Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Of course we’ll open in the morning for the dealers about a half-hour in advance to let you get the coffee working and your morning set-up done.

Q: What does it cost to rent a space within the Dealers Room?

A: We have both 6 and 8 foot tables available.

  • 8 Foot Tables:  $50 (only 3 left as of Jan 10)
  • 6 Foot Tables: $45 (only 4 left as of Jan 10)

Please note that convention memberships are separate from this fee, please check out the Keycon Registration page for rates.

In addition to the cost of the table purchase, for each table purchased we ask a $20 Merchandise donation, this will be used as volunteer prizes.  This is to be provided at the convention.

Q: What about my staff?

All of the dealers will receive 2 wrist bands for their staff.  If you require additional wrist bands for other staff you will have to arrange that in advance.  The wrist bands do not give you access to the rest of the convention.  A membership would have to be purchased to have full access.

Q: How can I register for a space within the Dealers Room??

A: Contact the Dealers Room Rep. Payments can be mailed in advance to:

P.O. Box 3178
Winnipeg MB R3C 4E6

or, if you’re local, you can arrange with the Dealers Committee Chair to meet and make your payment in person.

Q: What if I have to cancel my space?

A: If for some reason you are unable to attend as a dealer, table fees will be refunded minus a $20 Admin fee up to March 31, 2015, after this date table fees are non-refundable

Q: What are “Keycon Bucks”

We will be doing Prize draws for “Keycon Bucks” that we ask all dealers to honour (You will be reimbursed). We are doing this to help encourage more customers in the dealers room.  In order to be entered to win Keycon Bucks a person must make a purchase at a dealers table.  For every $5 dollars they spend they will receive a ticket for the draw.  Draws will take place at several points throughout the weekend.
