Artist Alley Changes

I want to thank the hundreds of people who took the time to fill out last year’s survey. I personally went through each and every one. We will be making changes throughout the months coming up to the con to make this year even better. You’ll see when you start registering later this month that we have a new registration system that’s more mobile friendly and easier to navigate. Additionally, you may notice a new section for Artist Alley and that’s what I’m here to tell you about.

You spoke! We listened! After reading the surveys, talking with a large number of artists and dealers as well as reading hundreds of write ups on Dealers Dens and Artist Alleys throughout the world our staff have been working together to try make our artist alley better. I am happy to announce a new hybrid approach to the Megaplex Artist Alley.

A majority of Artist Alley slots will be available for booking as part of your convention registration. Time slots are half day segments. You can Pre-Purchase up to 2 slots for yourself. Once those are gone they are gone. Fear not if you can’t get a guaranteed slot. Onsite, we will still be offering, for free, half day slots which will be issued via a lottery selection model every morning.


So how do I Pre-Purchase a slot?

Easy! When filling out your registration look for a checkbox asking you if you’re interested in artist alley. By checking that it will allow you to add up to 2 half day time slots, depending on availability, at the cost of $10 per time slot.

How do I participate in onsite selection?

Be at the Artist Alley 1 hour prior to the opening of Dealers Den and sign up and stick around! Thirty minutes prior to opening the selection will be made via a lottery system and the slots for the day will be announced. You MUST be present at the time of selection.


We know this is a bit different than we have done it before but we believe this will help provide our artists and attendees with a better overall experience. We look forward to seeing everyone at Megaplex 2018! For more details visit
