Applying for Space

The LoneStarCon 3 Dealers' Room is sold out as of Friday, July 12, 2013. Any new dealers who apply will be placed on a wait list. There will be no charge to be on the wait list. If, due to a cancellation, you are accepted as a dealer, membership and dealer space fees will then apply.

If you would like to be placed on the wait list, please contact Steve Francis, Dealers' Room Manager, at dealers@LoneStarCon3.org.

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE PAYMENT EITHER BY POST OR ONLINE UNLESS YOUR SPACE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED.

We are now taking applications and deposits for the Dealers' Room. All applications (with deposit) will be handled as they are received. Any dealer making application after the room is sold out will be placed on the wait list. The room will be juried and the final decision as to who will be allowed to set up in the dealers' area will rest with Dealers' Room management.

To read the full terms and to apply for space, please go to the Dealers' Room Entry page.

The LoneStarCon 3 Dealers' Room manager is Steve Francis. Please write to Steve with any queries at dealers@LoneStarCon3.org

If you have been allocated space in the Dealers' Room, please remember that all dealers are required to have a valid, current Texas Sales Tax Permit on file with us before opening of business on Thursday, August 29, 2013. Permits can be obtained online. Please allow 3 weeks to complete the application.

NOTICE: Some Chicon 7 dealers have been receiving cold calls from a company claiming to be booking housing for the 2013 Worldcon. Other claims include that discounted dealers reservations are available at the Hyatt near the convention. Lonestarcon has no connection with this firm, the Hyatt is not a convention hotel, and there are no discounted dealers' room rates at the convention hotels. Chicon 7 did not release dealers' information; the material came from skimming the public information on the Chicon 7 dealers' page.
