We did this show on the recommendation of a friend, and boy howdy.... what a shit show. We were deceived by our placement, placed not in the vendor room but around a corner away from the main entrance and attendees. We got to play a lot of archery tag... not selling things.
My friend did photography at this show. The con runner (according to him) lied to him about his compensation. Lied to the guests about their compensation, Rooker almost quit according to him. He then stiffed my friend despite his costs upfront. The show runner is really sketchy, yet some people swear by him. I never understood why.
Also, this is at the nightmare convention center which makes us vendors and artists OPEN our cash boxes, for "security" to make sure we're not carrying guns or something, and exposing to the world we sometimes have cash and are free to rob.... yeah, well done.
