Prior to setting up your table, all artists must check-in with the Artists Alley Coordinator. Here, you will obtain the finalized location of your table and your badge(s). More details about this will be provided to accepted artists closer to the convention weekend.
Artists are solely responsible for moving in all necessary merchandise and equipment. The Artists Alley is located on the lower level of the Blair County Convention Center. It is recommended that you park for unloading and loading inside the parking garage of the venue. There is an elevator available for use in the parking garage. There is no guarantee that the venue or Setsucon can provide hand trucks or dollies during load-in and load-out.
Check-in must be done prior to 09:00:00 AM ET on Saturday, January 14, 2023. Any tables that have not been claimed by that time will be forfeited without refund and become available for general purchase starting on Saturday morning. Artists Alley will be open Saturday 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Sunday 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. While we do have minimal programming occurring during the evening of Friday, January 13, 2023, Friday will be exclusively for set-up and there will be no public hours during this time.
Artists will have until 7:30 PM on Sunday, January 15, 2023 to completely clear out any and all merchandise and equipment brought into the venue.
