We are once again utilizing our ticketing platform, Eventbrite, to allow a more sufficient and organized way of sign-up.  

You should have received an e-mails from us confirming your place at our 2018 convention.  Please contact us if you have not.

For all other Exhibitors or Artists who are interested in signing up for our 2018 convention. please read on.  Registration links are now available.



Exhibitor Waiting List

All of our previous Exhibitors have signed up to return to Chicago TARDIS in 2018.  This means that Exhibitor spaces for any new vendors is extremely limited.  If you would still like to sign-up to exhibit at our 2018 convention, please sign-up to be on our waiting list.  Once we begin configuring our exhibitor area for 2018, we will be in touch on a first come, first serve basis.  

Who do we consider an Exhibitor?  An Exhibitor is someone who primarily sells pre-made or licensed product at conventions.  Please join our Artist Alley if you are selling handmade items.  

Please note that you will not be asked for payment when you put yourself on this waiting list.  Payment will be expected in full upon being contacted about admission into our convention.  You will also be expected to fill out our liability paperwork.

Artist Alley 

If you are interested in joining our Artist Alley for 2018, applications are now open!  

Who do we consider an Artist?  If you are a vendor who makes handmade goods and does not sell licensed, pre-made product, we will ask you to join our lineup in Artist Alley.  Upon paying and signing up to join our Artist Alley, you will be contacted by e-mail to fill out and return our liability paperwork.  When our spots in Artist Alley fill up, we will begin a waiting list for 2019.

A key difference from the past few years is that our Artists guests will be featured in the same space alongside our Artist Alley participants.  This is so we can drive as much traffic as possible into our Artist Alley area and get more attendees engaged in the different kinds of art showcased and being sold at Chicago TARDIS.
