Thank you for your interest in being part of the Merchants Hall at OrcaCon 2019. OrcaCon will be held January 11-13, 2019 at  the Hilton Bellevue. At this time, we’ve closed applications for the 2019 OrcaCon Merchant Hall. We’ll have the 2020 Merchant Hall application online next spring. 

The Merchants Hall at OrcaCon is a juried room and we reserve the right to select dealers that we feel are a good fit. We will review each application, as we have limited space. We are looking for a variety of artisans and shops offering game & geek related merchandise, with a higher priority given to businesses which come under our Mission Statement or are related to tabletop games. Your merchandise should fit within our a goal of focusing on inclusive and a welcoming environment. OrcaCon also reserves the right to prohibit the sale of certain items in the Merchants Hall, not limited to but including non-licensed, pirated, or mature/graphic material. We do not allow scented products to be sold at OrcaCon for accessibility concerns, and no food is to be sold per Hotel Policy.
