Do smaller mom and pop comic vendors sell there? I don't see a link for the cost of a vendor's booth: 8' x 8' or 10' x 10'. I like the design of the Puyallup blue gate hall. Lots of parking across the street. :nyah:

Found info for vendor booth rates ...

i might look in going there as a fan because of the comic artists in the list, will see about getting some books signed and hopefully a few sketches.  My buddy cried at me to stop dangling this notice about the show in his face. He wants to go .... LOL 😂 

Now the trick of finding a place for one overnight near that show. Most hotels and motels hovers about $100 a night. 😓

About 2 years ago, I stayed at a hotel across from casino in Fife, WA which is south of Seattle. Complimentary basic breakfast, free parking; think it was still about $100 US/night. Puyallup good for getting quality sigs on vintage comics or Amazing World of DC mags.

Had booked a hotel for this show. Not bad for two persons, my cost is $60 CAD split. I got to cook my own food, free parking, my own bed and wifi.

Next is to buy tickets and I’m set to go for some fun in June. Hoping for good weather. :wishluck:

Bit less 2 weeks left to go. My friend and I got our wristbands in mail. My hotel reservation inform me they add WiFi as part of reservation :bigsmile:

So we are pretty much covering all what’s needed for the trip. Gathering the books I need for signatures in process. Got new comic art paper by mail,  I need them to get sketches from artists. Getting the interpreters while waiting for reply from the WA comic con staff. 

Hope to see you boardies if you are going there. Drive safely

It doesn't look like CGC will have a booth there? Will it possible to get witnessed signatures? I'm leaning to go because of great lineup of talent but not sure about the witness signature part.

Good question on witnesse signatures. CGC isn’t going to this show, but maybe one of local WA comic book stores is a authorized witness  with CGC ... someone might offer this there?

Any estimate as to how many comic vendors may show up? I did not see a vendor list on their WA website. 10' x 10' weekend :) booth cost at $350 is quite reasonable for the smaller vendor.
