Dealers' Information

The Dealers' Room at ConJosé will be run by most of the same people who operated the Dealers' Rooms at Bucconeer, Chicon 2000 and The Millennium Philcon: Sally Kobee, Art Henderson and Becky Henderson (plus our fine supporting staff ). Located in the San José Convention Center, the Dealers' Room should have about 250 tables of varied SFnal merchandise within a spacious area featuring generous aisles for easy access.

As has been the case with all recent WorldCons, the ConJosé Dealers' Room will be a juried room. To ensure a balanced room with a variety of merchandise, ConJosé reserves the right to select dealers and to limit the amount of table space assigned. Such factors as promptness of response, clarity and accuracy of information, experience, and the nature of the merchandise offered will be considered, but the final decision will be ours.

Application forms were mailed to all interested dealers of record in mid-September 2001. The forms and the accompanying letter are also available for download here in PDF format.

The room is officially sold out, but we are maintaining a waiting list in the even of cancellations. Prospective dealers may still submit applications to be placed on the waiting list.

Seller's Permits

Dealers and anyone else selling merchandise (but not club or convention memberships) must collect and pay California sales tax (currently 8.25%). If you do not already have a California seller's permit, you can get a Temporary Seller's Permit from the California State Board of Equalization. The permit is free and you can find an application form here. The address and zip code for the convention center, which you will need when applying for this permit, is 408 S. Almaden Ave., San José, CA 95110.

The organizer of the event is San Francisco Science Fiction Conventions, Inc; the address is P.O. Box 61363, Sunnyvale, CA 94088-1363. The telephone number is 510-657-5705.
