The Swap Meet Seller's Agreement has been approved for FanimeCon 2017.  The rules are substantially the same as last year with only a few minor tweaks regarding asking for refunds.  I will update the first post with the relevant info, but here's the most pertinent details:

-Swap Meet will have 120 spaces available, which should be more than enough based on previous years.

-Swap Meet spaces will cost $40 per space per day, same as last year.

-Swap Meet spaces will be 14' x 6'

-Standard rules against standing displays, bootlegs, metal weapons, excessive uncovered adult materials, and so forth are the same as always.

-We don't yet have a date for registration to open, but more info will be forthcoming.

I remember two years ago we weren't able to bring it wheeled carts, will that still be the case?

hey wait a second.. I remember two years ago people DID bring wheel like carts into the set!.. and  it's only allowed as long as it doesnt block traffic to those who walk in....!!!!

I'm sure Zelyhon will post all the official rules (soon?) but from my experience with swap meet, hand trucks, dollies and the like are not permitted INSIDE South Hall or any other Fanime venue. 

BUT the sidewalk leading to South Hall is a public throughway.  It shouldn't be a problem using carts to transport your stuff up to the doors, but once you're checked in you're supposed to bring everything in by hand.  I kept trying to find clever ways to transport stuff on wheeled luggage, lots of rope and straps.  Anything to technically not violate the union rules that are the root of all these concerns.  But after hearing that all that stuff is fine until you hit the threshold, heck, I'm going for a furniture dolly to push all my used manga right up to the doors.
That's fundamentally correct.  Once inside South Hall and other Convention Center property, there's specific union rules that prohibit the use of such things as hand trucks or dollies or the like.  However, outside of South Hall is public property, without such restrictions.  You will be able to use them to transport things to the front of South Hall, but not inside it.

And I will have the official rules up once they pass through the final reviews that are taking place.

I thought this was true until I saw literally 3 people in front of me go in with hand trucks. Are these not being enforced at the time or how can I report it?
We'll be trying to keep an eye on it during he convention.  However, if there are any problems that you notice with it, just flag me down.  I'll be the either near the front of the hall or wandering the floor during Swap Meet and Emory likely checking forms for check-in.  Speaking of...

I will be doing Rurouni Kenshin and Yuyuhakusho, and I have a friend who might do Shenmue or something else old school. I'd like to join!

I suggest this because the time i went for a tournament last year, the headset used did not block out all the noise of the gaming room and communications between my teammates were just hard to hear. Also for tournaments in any game, Can the random free agent people NOT be put up against premade teams that already know each other? putting up a team that already know each other against a rag tag group of randos is not how you should run a tournament. game in question is Overwatch btw but this is just a suggestion.
