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 invariably licensed by the studios that own the series that we honor and that requires that all merchandise sold be completed vetted by us, the convention licensee for these properties.
FOR VENDORS THAT WISH TO ATTEND SUPERNATURAL, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES/THE ORIGINALS, and/or STARGATE CONVENTIONS:
As a potential vendor that means the following rules must be followed to attend our SUPERNATURAL, VAMPIRE DIARIES, and/or STARGATE 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 with a few notable exceptions. At the Vampire Diaries Conventions we can only not allow the sale or promotion of non The Vampire Diaries or Originals.
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 ON UNLICENSED CRAFT TYPE ITEMS which would include studio owned logos, names, images, or sayings. Please do not bring these types of things, including t-shirts, posters, bags, etc.
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 Stargate. 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 or The Originals please contact us via email@example.com for approval to sell such item(s).
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.
ALL VAMPIRE DIARIES, STARGATE and SUPERNATURAL CONVENTIONS IN ALL CITIES:
TABLES ARE $300 EACH (for the entire weekend) and include 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.
Set-Up times are available at the top of each convention website the last few weeks prior to the convention. 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).
ALL STAR TREK CONVENTIONS:
The Las Vegas Convention is discussed below. ALL STAR TREK CONVENTIONS are priced at $350 a table for the 2016th 50th Anniversary Year. They are 2 /2 by 6 feet and generally include two chairs and a table cloth. Because these conventions are likely to sell out your vendors admission does not allow attendance in the theatre unless it is available. Set-Up times are available at the top of each convention website the last few weeks prior to the convention.
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. Vendors are not allowed to sell un-autographed photographs of any STAR TREK character.
In order to sell at any California convention you must have a sales tax license.

IMPORTANT VENDOR INFORMATION
CREATION ENTERTAINMENT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DENY VENDOR ACCESS TO ANY EVENT IF THE COMPANY FEELS THAT PARTICIPATION BY A GROUP OR INDIVIDUAL WILL HARM THE EVENT OR OUR COMPANY IN ANY MANNER. CREATION ENTERTAINMENT WILL BE THE FINAL ARBITER IN THESE CASES.
When buying a vendors table you are purchasing 2 1/2 feet by 6 feet of tabletop
space to sell from.
It is not acceptable, due to studio rules, to sell prints of your artwork of the characters that are owned by the series studios. Also, our venues to do NOT allow the sale of food products as they consider them competitive.
Creation only allows the sale of licensed merchandise (including videotapes) at its events. Exhibitors are responsible for the legality of the items they sell, as well as government and/or tax licenses, and insurance. We do not allow the sale of pornographic materials at our events and please keep in mind that Creation events do attract children of all ages.
The sale of photographs or postcards of characters played by guests appearing at the convention is prohibited as are cast shots featuring said characters. Pre- Autographed photos are acceptable for display and sale.
Vendors may also not distribute literature promoting other genre events without pre-written confirmation by Creation Entertainment. Although we often allow this to occur at our sole discretion, if the event you wish to promote is directly competitive to existing or planned Creation events, unfortunately we can not allow promotion of said conventions. Distribution of promotional flyers for sci-fi or other genre conventions without permission will result in your booth being closed without refund.
Vendors may not collect names and addresses (e-mail or otherwise) of event attendees without written approval from promoter.
Exhibitors agree to hold harmless Creation Entertainment and any of its production partners from loss or damage of merchandise or injury sustained during attendance at its events. Exhibit rooms are watched by security or locked by the facilities during non-show hours. Creation takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen during these hours: it is up to vendors to carry insurance for their goods.
Please keep your area neat and clean. Kindly bring along a trash bag to collect your garbage and food left-overs. Your help in keeping the facility clean allows us to come back next time!
All tables come with up to two complimentary VENDOR PASSES, most often in the form of speciallly coded wristbands that allow you into the vendors room during set up and close down periods. It is necessary for us to physically place these wristbands on, no exceptions. Please make sure to wear them throughout the weekend as we can not replace them. WRISTBANDS will be given out generally the first morning before opening.
Vendors may not "sublet" their space to other companies or persons.
