Registration

Eurofurence 25 Dealer Registration starts on March 1, 2019!

How Do I Register As a Dealer?

Before applying for dealer space, you must register for the Eurofurence convention. On March 1, 2019, we will open the Dealer Registration for which you will need your Eurofurence registration number, nickname and password. When registering, you will be asked to provide information about the estimated table space you require and what type of goods you will be selling. Furthermore, we would like you to provide some information about yourself.

Table sizes are:

  • Half Table (90 × 80 cm / 35.5″ × 31.5″)
  • Single Table (180 × 80 cm / 71″ × 31.5″)
  • Large Table (270 × 80 cm / 106.5″ × 31.5″)
  • Double Table (360 × 80 cm / 141.5″ × 31.5″)

You will get an e-mail notification once we have received your application. This notification is NOT a confirmation for the Dealers' Den!

Dealer registration ends on April 17, 2019! Registered dealers will receive written confirmation of any table space that has been assigned to them, together with the first layout of the seating plan, within two weeks after this deadline. Dealers must pay their convention fee in full before April 17, 2019 to become eligible for any table space. Your registration date neither influences the amount of table space nor the chance of any space being allocated to you at all.

Dealers registering after the deadline will be put on the waiting list and processed on short notice as space permits.

What Does it Cost?

Dealer table space is free of charge! However, we reserve the right to limit the space available for each individual dealer, or reject applications entirely, to balance demand with available space.

Every registered guest of the convention may apply for table space, provided the convention fee has been fully paid until April 17, 2019.

Deadline

Tables are not assigned on a first come, first served basis. All available table space will be distributed among all applications within two weeks after the dealer registration deadline. The time of your registration does neither influence the amount of table space, nor the chance of getting any table space at all, provided you apply before the deadline.

The deadline for dealer registrations is April 17, 2019; later applications will be put on the waiting list.

Opening Times

The Dealers' Den will be open to customers daily each afternoon from Thursday to Saturday, usually from 12:00 to 18:00 during Eurofurence. Dealers will be able to set up and tear down their points of sale outside of these times. The exact times will be announced in the conbook. Outside of the opening times, security will guard the room, allowing you to leave your table and merchandise in relative safety overnight if you wish. Eurofurence e.V. as the host of the convention cannot be held responsible for any damaged, lost or stolen goods or money, and it is entirely up to you to take reasonable precautions yourself.

Types of Merchandise

Preferred Merchandise

Because we're a furry convention, your goods or services should be of interest to furry fans. We know that it's hard to draw a strict line, so we'll leave it at saying that sellers of furry merchandise will be preferred. Typical items for sale are, for example, (badge) commissions, original furry artwork and prints, CDs and DVDs with artwork, pieces of furry-themed jewelry and fursuit materials as well as plushies made out of faux fur.

Fan Art - that is, art based on TV series, games, or other intellectual property of a third party - can only be displayed and sold subject to some limitations. Ideally, the dealer can provide a legal agreement with the rights holder granting them the right to use the intellectual property in question. Failing this, any use of third-party intellectual property must be within the limits of Fair Use / Free Use or equivalent regulations. In any case, the dealers are responsible that the merchandise they offer does not violate copyright, trade law, or other applicable law.

Prohibited Merchandise

The Dealers' Den is an adults-only area, so adult-oriented material may be sold. However, we would like to ask our dealers to apply some common sense. Some items must never be sold:

  • Anything that violates German Law, including, but not limited to: weapons, weapon look-alikes, all kind of Nazi symbols, illegal drugs or pornography depicting pedophilia or zoophilia, racist and religious content, all kind of excessive violence or cruelty even in non-sexual content, rape, toilet activities.
  • Items made of real fur or animal body parts, such as taxidermy animals, clothing or accessories (leather may be excepted).
  • Additionally, we do not allow the sale of sex toys, fetish gear, and other items that the management of the Dealers' Room deems inappropriate.
  • Copyrighted material (see the subject “Fan Art” above) might be displayed but not for sale!
  • Hotel regulations prohibit selling food or beverages. The sale of beverages or food in closed containers may be permitted in special cases, with explicit permission from the Dealers' Den Management.

The members of the Dealers' Den team are allowed to check and, if necessary, remove items and artwork from your table at the convention itself if we think it breaches the rules.

If you are unsure if your merchandise might fall into any of these categories, please drop us an email and ask! :)
