[User Picture]05:04 pm - Attention Furry Artists and Dealers! Question as a con-staff for a growing outdoor con:

This is an official query to any and all dealers as a staff member of an outdoor convention, Wild Nights, akin to Camp Feral or Oklacon. Especially if you've been to any of the above listed events in the past.

We're considering having an official dealers den and/or artist's alley, and wanted to know your thoughts as a dealer; I'm asking since I know quite a few dealers on my friends list. :-) Several of these may sound stupid, but they were asked by other staffers so I'm forwarding the questions, even though that I'm quite sure will have 100% a specific type of answer. Bear in mind this is in mid-to-late April in Oklahoma near Tulsa, weather is very temperate and mild historically, edging on the cooler side still.

  1. Would any of you want a dealers den/artist's alley at all at a primarilly outdoor con?
  2. Would it be acceptable to do this in a semi-permanent open-side tent?
  3. Would it be acceptable to do this in a permanent but still open-sided structure?
  4. Would it be acceptable to do this in a fully enclosed, but not climate-controlled building?
  5. Would you rather it be dedicated event space for the entire weekend, or a one-shot event of 2-3 hours, with around an hour or setup before-hand and after-wards?
  6. If it's a dedicated one-shot event:

  7. Would you mind if we had other events going on during the dealers den event? I.E. Pred/Prey, or something like that?
  8. Would you mind if we had other events going on during the setup OR teardown time, but not both?
  9. Would you mind if we had other events going on during BOTH setup AND teardown?
  10. Would you rather setup, or teardown butt up against a meal period? (Wild Nights includes fresh-cooked food for all meals.)
