Industry Exhibition

Industry Space/Booths

The Industry Room will be in Exhibit Hall C of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (WEWCC). Otakon members will enter the exhibition hall and pass through industry booths before they can move on to the adjoining Dealer's booths.

The intended audience for industry space is official licensors, license holders, and licensed distributors. Pricing is based on 10'x10' blocks. However, there are fewer restrictions on the layout and space usage.

Industry space is limited, and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and as necessary to maintain adequate flow and spacing throughout the room. We will try our best to accommodate your location preference. However, it may be necessary to relocate Industry areas, and we reserve the right to do so within reason.

Industry Space Rates

Industry room space is charged a base rate of $1,800 per 10'x10' space booked and paid at least four weeks before the convention. End cap placement is available for an additional $500 per end cap space.

Booth rates are negotiable.  We are willing to offer discount s in consideration of efforts by your organization on behalf of Otakon. Typical industry contributions would include providing guests of honor, providing significant programming content such as video premieres, and assisting with other promotional events that enrich the Otakon experience for our members.  Discounted rates, will be accompanied by a contractual agreement which will the amount of discount based on contribution(s) received by Otakon.

We welcome your suggestions and contributions, but please understand that our organization's basic philosophy prevents us from accepting certain types of contributions.
