Went to this event as a goer when it first started in LA. It was so fun that I decided to apply for a table.
The first two emails were kind and professional. They took my credit card info, I asked them if I had a booth and they said “Yes!” so I took their word. That was the last email I’ve received from them. Then when they were sending out placement information, they didn’t send it to me and a few other vendors. They ignored my emails, up to the day before, day of, and after. They made vague posts about me and other vendors they were doing this to on Instagram, calling us “wannabes” and “we aren’t kanye west, we ain’t special” for questioning them. The event organizer even did a Instagram live story to tell us they weren’t going to respond cause “we ain’t special and they’re small business owners too” and argued with the chat. They deleted those posts off their Instagram.
Apply if you want, you’ll be lucky if they want to include you in their “special club”.

RUNAWAY! SCAM CON ALERT
Ricky, the con runner, is a terrible businessman. We book a booth for their show (MARCH 2020) then the pandemic hit. He never refunded our booth and used other vendor money to open up his brick and mortar store in Santa Ana! He plays favorites among artist and never help small artist in promotion. DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO THIS ORGANIZER!!!
