Exhibitor Hall Prices

10×10 – $400
10×20 – $800
10×30 – $1200

There are no spaces available larger than 10×30, and only one space may be purchased per company, project, or individual.

DEALER INFO

  • One booth space per company, project, or individual.

  • Absolutely no bootleg merchandise is permitted. Houston is the home of many professionals in the anime industry – offering bootleg merchandise for sale at our event is not only a violation of our rules and federal law, it is also disrespectful to all the people who put hard work into creating amazing anime programming.

  • Exhibitors are expected to be ready for sales at least one hour before the scheduled Vendor Hall opening hours. The Exhibit Hall opens to VIP Badge holders one half hour before official scheduled hours. Full hours and policies will be included with setup details for approved Exhibitors. Exhibitors are required to remain open for sales during all scheduled Exhibit Hall hours; closing or tearing down before the Exhibit Hall closes is prohibited. Every attendee deserves the full anime convention experience, even those who arrive Sunday afternoon for the last hour or two of the Exhibit Hall.

  • There are no refunds offered for unused or canceled spaces. In the event that an Exhibitor is unable to attend due to COVID exposure or other illness, paid Exhibitor spaces may be rolled over to the next Anime Houston at no cost; if space is available, you may instead opt to be rolled over to Anime Dallas at additional cost. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or any of its variants in the 10 days before your first day on-site at Anime Houston, or you are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19, please stay home.

  • One 6-foot table and two chairs are provided per 10x10 space; a 20x10 space includes two tables and four chairs, and so on. Electrical power cannot be guaranteed.
