Creation celebrates our many years of Convention Memories

William Shatner, Sir Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy
Our Vegas Star Trek Convention is ALWAYS full of surprises! Sir Patrick Stewart joins William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in this once in a lifetime moment! We're glad we were there!

Kirsten, Robert and Taylor
Three of the most popular actors on the planet graced our stages along with their The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director: Bill Condon, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner helped us make history at an official gan gathering done in conjunction with the press junket and in association with Summit Entertainment.

We even had time to publish 6 issues of a popular comic art fanzine called Infinity when we were teenagers. Back in the days before the internet, printed fanzines and conventions helped keep fandom connected.

When we ran The Official STAR WARS Convention we brought in Gene Roddenberry as a surprise and this moment in time was a true highlight. Gene was a great mentor of ours and he is always in our thoughts, especially when we gather for our Official STAR TREK Conventions.

LOST was one of the great TV series of all-time and we were proud to be an official licensee for the show. Here three of the stars, Ian Somerhalder, Evangeline Lilly and Naveen Andrews, grace our stages in a Creation Convention appearance.

A VERY special moment in Creation History

BILL SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY toasting the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek on the exact day, 4 decades later, that the original series began its TV run! Taken in Chicago at Creation's Salute to Star Trek's 40th! Thanks, Bill and Leonard for being such a big part of Creation Entertainment! Who would have thought that as kids that watched classic Trek, that one day we'd be working with these show biz legends!


History is made again at Creation when LEONARD NIMOY passes the ceremonial "#1 Vulcan" tee-shirt to the new Mr. Spock ZACHARY QUINTO. It all happened in front of the audience at Grand Slam XVI. Creation Conventions: it is ALL about making wonderful memories like this!

Jack Nicholson
Superstar Legend Jack Nicholson made the "Creation" scene, a definite ultra-cool moment in our 40 plus year history!

Patrick Macnee
Growing up watching THE AVENGERS was a particular joy so when Patrick Macnee joined the Creation line-up of stars it was a joyous occasion for us and his many fans!

Star Trek Captains
It's never happened before or after but it was another of our proudest moments: having four STAR TREK Captains share the stage. Let's hope we can pull it off again some day and add a few more?

Star Trek Captains
Long-time Creation friend (and early fan attendee turned superstar producer) DEAN DEVLIN brought along friends Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer to one of our shows. Dean is currently behind one of TV's greatest shows LEVERAGE!

Star Trek Captains
The impeccable Ricardo Montalban created Star Trek's most popular villian as Khan but in person he truly was one of a kind and his two appearances for us were definitely amongst the most memorable! He is sorely missed by all Trekkers and was indeed a Hollywood classic himself!

Star Trek Captains
Gracious and supportive to us as ever William Shatner made sure first time Creation guest star Joan Collins (in her only convention appearance) was comfortable on stage, reunited decades after their ultra-popular classic Trek appearance together!

Star Trek Captains
As promised, a seat for all! Here's a scene of the amazing theatre we used for years for our Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. At Creation shows: no waiting and worrying about seeing the stars!

Star Trek Captains
Pretty Cool we'd say to have welcomed the ultra talented Elijah Wood as Creation promoted several Official LORD OF THE RINGS events.

Here's some shots of Leonard Nimoy's last convention appearance (courtesy of Paul Harvath), taken at our Chicago 2011 Official STAR TREK Convention. Thank You Leonard for your three decade association with Creation: we've loved every minute of presenting you to your adoring fans (of which we number ourselves!):

VENDOR INFORMATION:

GENERAL

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 asponsor@creationent.com 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 asponsor@creationent.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 50 YEAR MISSION 2016 CONVENTIONS saluting the 50th Anniversary of STAR TREK are priced at $350 a table. 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 week prior to the convention with the complete convention schedule if not sooner. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
