We are specifically focused on game stores, game companies, and game accessories for the Merchant Hall and tabletop / geek arts & crafts for the Artist Alley.
The Merchants Hall / Artist Alley at OrcaCon are juried rooms. We reserve the right to select dealers that we feel are a good fit for the OrcaCon community. We will review each application, as we have limited space. We are looking for artisans and shops offering game & geek related merchandise, with a higher priority given to BIPOC creators in tabletop.
We also give higher priority to businesses focused directly on the tabletop games hobby.
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 per accessibility concerns, and no food is to be sold per Hotel Policy.
All tables and booths must be ADA accessible.
