I’m not sure if I’ll be accepted into Dream Con 2023’s Exhibit Hall. How should I go about securing my pass?

We recommend purchasing a badge during the public release if you would like to guarantee entry to Dream Con in the event you are not chosen to participate as a Vendor/Artist. If you are not selected to be a vendor, Dream Con is not able to offer ticket purchases outside of the general public ticket drops.

Upon being approved to exhibit as a Vendor/Artist in the Dream Con 2023 Exhibit Hall, our team will prompt you to respond with your Order Number so that we may issue a ticket exchange. In the event you do not receive a confirmation email, contact exhibitors@dreamconvention.com to verify your Exhibit Hall acceptance status.

Do you have tips for improving my application odds?

I’m interested in using Dream Con and/or RDC assets/trademarks in a product idea. How can I go about doing that?

Any exhibitors with intent to use the trademarks, likeness, or intellectual property of RDCWorld or Dream Con must submit requests to exhibitors@dreamconvention.com, receive written approval, and agree to the additional licensing terms no later than 60 days prior to Dream Con 2023.

Failure to do so may result in Dream Con staff not permitting the display or sale of those respective items at the convention. Deliberate violations or attempts to circumvent this protocol with unauthorized goods and services may result in an exhibitor’s removal from Dream Con or attendance restrictions for future events at staff discretion.
