Please review information below as our vendor space is filled every year. All applications will be considered on a first come, first serve JURY based decision. Meaning, iMagicon will give priority to vendors who are selling items that fit the pop culture theme. iMagicon reserves the right to waitlist or decline vendors who have violated vendor agreements from previous years (such as tearing down early without consent/not appearing for a show/etc).
All applications received in the 2023 year have 30 days to make payment to reserve their spot. Any applications received in the 2024 year (aka closer to event time) have 15 days to make payment before forgoing their spot.
Official Hotel: Vendors and participants are encouraged to help support the convention by staying at our official hotels - The Hampton Inn & Suites and The Grand Hotel - which have set up a special iMagicon room block for participants. The Hampton Inn & Suites & The Grand Hotel offers free shuttle service between the hotel and iMagicon for guests. Your room block rental shows the Minot area that our guests truly support the event. If you decide to rent outside of the room block (say for Military discounts, etc), make sure you mention you are in town for iMagicon.
