SWAP MEET 2019 OFFICIAL INFORMATION THREAD

Ok awesome thank you! Looking forward to it!

Hi!

My two friends and I want to split two Swap Meet spaces. Is this allowed? We all have badges already and we would basically be purchasing two spaces and splitting it three-way (both spaces next to each other).

Another edit: Actually, I think I was pretty unclear. A better question is, will the three of us (all registered and everything) be able to sell our stuff mixed in two different spaces that are next to each other? This means that we want to be able to freely move between the two spaces since our stuff will be mixed in either space. Technically, it will be two people registering for one space and the third single person buying another space next to it, and then the three of us just put our stuff in either space.

Thanks!

Ftwyn:
Are there specific dimensions to a "long box"?

I'm sure Zelyhon will post an official response shortly, but I thought I'd go ahead and post my reply from years of participating in swap meet.

edit: and if this is allowed, can one person purchase 2 spaces with the intention of sharing it three way?

It's a maximum of two people per space, and both must not only have their own Fanime badge to participate, both people must be registered for that spot at swap meet.  Zelyhon will have the swap meet registration information posted a little closer to the con.  Also, each person can only sign up for one space per night.  This is to prevent people from registering two spaces and combing them together to make one large spot.  For three people, you will need to either register for two or three separate spaces.  Two people can share one and the third in the other, or all three people would have their own spot.  And remember, if you're going to get three different spaces, all three people would need to register independently.

You know it's funny, after all this time I've only ever seen it referred to as a long box and never with any specific dimensions.  I've always taken it to mean a long comic box (they come in "long" and "short") for storing traditional comic books.  That doesn't mean you have to specifically use a long comic box - I very rarely see people use them - you're just restricted to a covered box no bigger than the equivalent size.  For reference, a long box is roughly 8"x11"x28" and you can find them at your local comic shop or order them online.  Or use any covered box, just so you can't see the contents without opening it, that happens to be the same dimensions or smaller.
