Space Availability and Electricity
FangCon shall endeavor to make as much space available to the vendors as possible while taking care not to violate any fire or safety codes as required by the fire Fire Marshall of Birmingham, AL. Vendors are responsible to keep all items within the confines of their booth space and maintain clear isle space.
Tables are aligned along the walls with some tables set up in the center section of the room also. Our Dealer den has grown in size and may grow again before the con happens. All efforts to supply electricity will be made, but outlet space is limited. If you require electricity, please note this when registering. Vendors will be required to supply their own extension cords and are responsible for their use. Cords may not cross aisle space. This will have to be cleared with hotel staff and may not be allowed. If this is allowed, the vendor must use blue painter's tape to fasten the cord down. Do NOT use Duct Tape as this will damage the carpeting. The vendor is responsible for any damages (direct or consequential) that may result from use of an extension cord, including damage to the carpeting as a result of using the wrong type of tape.
This applies to the Artist Alley also. Tasteful display of merchandise is desired. No illegal items may be sold or displayed. It is incumbent upon the vendor to know what is legally allowed at the con site by the state of Alabama, City of Birmingham. No sale or display of porngraphy, or any items that may require FangCon to obtain special license or permit to allow on the premises. Adult art, properly protected from minors, is allowed. Items that may be ultra violent or sexually explicit must be kept from minors at all times. Such items must be kept in separate binders or boxes and shown only to adults upon request.
Pirated materials are not allowed to be sold at the convention at any time. FangCon may request that items that come into question be shown to have proof of availability for resale or such items may have to be taken down until such proof becomes available. Vendors hold FangCon harmless for any violation of Copyright laws that may occur. Resale of used items or collections is permissible. Vendors who normally sell such items in the operation of their business will be allowed to do so. Sale of weapons or potentially dangerous items that are pre-approved by the Dealer Den supervisor is allowed, however such items must be peace bonded or made harmless and must be immediately removed to the protection of a private vehicle upon purchase. The purchaser may request accompaniment of a security person for transport of any item to their vehicle if desired.
