As our convention evolves, it is our goal to diversify and expand the kinds of merchandise we have to offer, so only a certain number of each kind of vendor will be accepted. If you would like to attend please try to sign up and complete payment early. Vendors will be choosing table locations in the order that we receive payment.

While we are foremost a comic convention, we are currently seeking dealers specializing in graphic novels, manga, anime, accessories, posters, clothing, and toys. We welcome any references or ideas you have about who we should invite or how to make the A.C.E. experience even better!

If you are an interested first-time vendor, please contact us with a detailed description of your wares and any available website links. The A.C.E. team will decide if you’re a good fit and answer any questions you have.

Prices for vendor tables are as follows:

First and Second Vendor Table: $150

Any Additional Table: $100

Electrical hookup: $10

WiFi Connection: $5
