Vendor's Hall & Artist Alley
Thank you for showing interest in becoming a Dealer or Artist at Anime Iwai: Rush
At Anime Iwai, all exhibitor applications are juried to make sure we do not over saturate any particular type of merchandise. This allows all exhibitors to profit as much as possible while ensuring diversity at our convention for our attendees.
We are providing an online status page at the bottom of this page to show the progress of applications. DO NOT contact us asking when your application will move to the next step. The nature of a juried exhibition hall is that if we have too many applicants from one category of art/merchandise we will approve applications from other categories first regardless of the application date. When you apply for a space, please be sure to include a portfolio of you wares/art (Instagram, twitter, website, photos, etc).
* Please note, failure to provide a portfolio will result in instant disqualification for an exhibitor space *
All spaces are approved in 3 waves. The first approval date is is is May 31st. After approval, you will be sent an email and you have TWO WEEKS to pay for your booth or the approval will be rescinded.
The 2nd round of approval will be July. After approval, you will be sent an email and you have TWO WEEKS to pay for your booth or the approval will be rescinded.

Adult material (i.e., any material that suggests mature themes, content, nature, or styles) are permitted to be sold. Due to the mixed audience that will be attending the convention, any material that can be considered "adult/18+" must be properly covered or concealed, and it is the responsibility of the exhibitor to ensure that those who purchase such material are of legal age by checking for proper identification.
