2015 Otaku Bazaar Registration Opens July 1

T-MODE Otaku Bazaar

SAVE THE DATE! Merchant registration for the T-MODE Otaku Bazaar opens July 1, 2014. I’m really excited because we have huge changes this year.

1. More room!
The Otaku Bazaar is now located in the Plaza Ballroom. That means we have more merchant spaces available. Much more! It also means that we will no longer impose a space limit. Merchants can purchase as many spaces as they want.

2. All spaces are $150.
Getting a larger room means we have to increase rates to help cover the higher costs.

3. Receive 2 complimentary 3-Day memberships.
To help with the rate increase, each booth space will receive two complimentary 3-Day memberships!

4. All booth spaces are 6′ x 6′.
Booths include one 6′ x 3′ table and two chairs. If you’re used to a bigger booth size, you can purchase two 6′ x 6′ spaces to create one big 12′ x 6′ booth for only $300. Plus you’ll get 4 complimentary memberships with your space. Remember, you can purchase as many spaces as you want to create an even bigger booth.

Everyone selling something at T-MODE is considered a merchant. We still don’t distinguish between artists or vendors, so that hasn’t changed. This is also a great opportunity to take advantage of our fantastic $89/night hotel rate to make selling at T-MODE even more convenient.

We’ll announce when Otaku Bazaar registration is active on July 1. Feel free to email us with any questions, or connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.
