FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Monday, February 6, 2012

Chicago, Illinois, USA - Chicon 7, the 70th World Science Fiction Convention ("Worldcon"), has announced the second deadline for vendors to apply for space in its Dealers' Room. This deadline is March 15, 2012. Vendors who did not apply during the first round submission period, which closed on January 15, 2012, are encouraged to sign up promptly to be sure of securing space.

The Dealers' Room is the Worldcon's shopping mall and the Chicon 7 Dealers' Room will include some 200 tables and booths selling a huge variety of genre-related items. In addition to numerous book sellers (both new and second-hand/antiquarian), a Worldcon Dealers' Room typically includes vendors selling DVDs, comics, art prints, clothing, model kits, and jewelry as well as more unusual and esoteric items.

With approximately 5,000 science fiction fans expected to attend, the Chicon 7 Dealers' Room is likely to be busy throughout the five days of the convention. 8' x 30" tables are available for just $250 for the run of the convention, while 10' x 10' exhibit booths can be rented for just $750. Dealers may reserve up to five tables or booths. All dealers and their staff will also need Chicon 7 attending memberships (not included within the space rental fee).
