Is there anything else I can do to get a table?

No.

Why did so few tables go on sale Feb 2nd 2019?

No.

Is my merchandise okay to sell at your event?

Products must be LEGO-related.  See the rules.

I'm a vendor, where do I setup?

Each vendor will select their tables in turn, primarily by size, largest to smallest.  You will be emailed a few weeks prior to the event.

My friend is a vendor already, I'm gonna buy one of his tables.

No you're not.  See the rules.  There is no circumventing the wait-list.  Everyone has the same fair chance to get tables.

When am I required to be at my table?

You are free to come and go, be open or closed for business, any time you wish.  Less than half the vendors, typically, arrive on opening (private) day for sales to AFOLs and to participate in AFOL fun.  Many more vendors arrive and set up on Friday to prepare for weekend public business.

The (private) event begins Wednesday, Jul 31st.  The move-in rule for all vendor and MOC areas is: No LEGO on the table until 12:00 noon.  Vendors are welcome to arrive as early as 9:00am to load-in boxes.
