Participation by vendors at Creation promoted conventions is strictly up to the sole discretion of Creation Entertainment. Unlike most other fan conventions, and certainly the vast “comic cons” Creation Conventions are meant to be smaller, feature more live entertainment and audience/celebrity interaction. They are most often officially licensed by the studios that own the series and we honor that which requires that all merchandise sold be completed licensed and when necessary vetted by us, the convention licensee for these properties.
FOR VENDORS THAT WISH TO ATTEND SUPERNATURAL, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES/THE ORIGINALS, and ONCE UPON A TIME OFFICIAL CONVENTIONS:
As a potential vendor that means the following rules must be followed to attend our SUPERNATURAL, VAMPIRE DIARIES, or ONCE UPON A TIME EVENTS. You are always allowed to sell product that might appeal to the audience that attends these conventions. It can be fantasy and genre art, jewelry, posters, novelties and items from other genre series or themes with a few notable exceptions. At the Vampire Diaries Conventions we can not allow the sale or promotion of non The Vampire Diaries or Originals merchandise.
Vendors may never sell PHOTOGRAPHS or SIGNABLE POSTERS or art of the actors or the actors appearing in character at the convention. Creation has a license for these items and can not have unlicensed or unauthorized images sold. Unfortunately this also includes ALL fan art representations of the characters, whether one original or prints made of such. On occasion we do allow pre-autographed items of characters/actors, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for permission to sell these items. WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE THE SALE of UNLICENSED CRAFT TYPE ITEMS which includes studio owned logos, names, images, or sayings. Please do not bring these types of things, including t-shirts, posters, bags, etc. as your table will be closed with no refunds being offered. Do not come if you plan on selling these types of items., any discussion of what is permissible will be decided by Creation Entertainment. If you wish to check you may write to us at email@example.com prior to the convention. Do not buy a table if your item is questionable. AT SUPERNATURAL CONVENTIONS VENDORS CAN NOT SELL THE "AMULET" AS FEATURED IN THE PROGRAM. DO NOT BRING ANY AS THEY WILL BE SHUT DOWN. THANKS!
The Supernatural Car may not be displayed on the hotel property in terms of money making ventures.
OUR VENUES DO NOT ALLOW THE SALE OF ANY TYPES OF EDIBLE ITEMS
Creation also holds the licenses for general souvenir merchandise for much of Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and Once Upon A Time. This would be photographs, apparel, hats, glassware, the amulet from Supernatural, etc. We also try to carry third person merchandise when we can. We are not looking for competition at the conventions because the vendors rooms are small. If this is your product line you will do far better at comic con situations and avoid the direct competition. If you have a STUDIO LICENSED item from Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon A Time, or The Originals please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for approval to sell such item(s). Anyone selling an item that we deem to be competitive to us that has not written to the email address given will be asked to eliminate that item from sale, even if it is the majority of their booth.
Exhibit tables (generally 2 1/2 by 6 feet, including two chairs) are available at most Creation events.
Tables must be ordered by Wednesday prior to the event. At certain conventions (generally at convention centers) electricity is extra and you will be required to pay the facility their fee at the convention. Wall table locations are given if requested, on a when paid basis. In certain cases wall locations are limited and we can not assure any specific location for our vendors. Best locations are assigned on a when paid basis as well.
OFFICIAL VAMPIRE DIARIES CONVENTION TABLE PRICES ARE $300 EACH
OFFICIAL SUPERNATURAL CONVENTION TABLE PRICES ARE - $400 EACH (expect Vancouver, $575, and Las Vegas, $500)
ONCE UPON A TIME CONVENTIONS - $350 EACH
All prices cover all the days of the convention and includes two general admissions to the convention vendors room. Because our shows have been selling out the vendors passes no longer can guarantee access into the theatre. You may request wall space but there is no guarantee. Wall space is given on a when paid basis so the earlier you purchase the better your location.
OFFICIAL ONCE UPON A TIME CONVENTIONS: We are thrilled to add a new series of fan convention events to our roster of shows, really ramping up in 2017. Our OUAT conventions are licensed by the studio and require that all vendors do not infringe upon the characters, sayings, logos or images owned by ABC. This includes photos and artwork of the characters unless done in parody form. Items of interest to this audience are of course allowed as well as licensed OUAT products. You may order your tables (2 1/2 by 6) now but if you break the above rules you will be asked to leave and your money will not be refunded, so if you have any questions prior please write to email@example.com. TABLES ARE $350 EACH FOR THE FULL CONVENTION.
Set-Up times are available at the top of each convention website the last week (usually on Tuesday or Wednesday but sometimes sooner) prior to the convention. Generally set up is done on the day prior to the convention beginning later in the day but leaving enough time for pre-registration. This is a general statement and may not apply to each convention depending on availability of the facility the day before. Additionally, vendors must have the appropriate government licenses (usually sales tax resale numbers that you can get on a temporary basis if you don't have one).
