CCAG Vendor Information
Thank you for interest in attending CCAG as a vendor / exhibitor!
We are looking forward to you attending northern Ohio's only show dedicated to classic computing and gaming.
Please read this entire page, then feel free to ask questions and, of course, register to attend our popular show.
CCAG vendors receive the following benefits:
Date and Time of CCAGShow 2018
Display their wares for classic and current video gaming and pinball equipment at the show. Please bring along whatever you like, but you'd be wise to have plenty of classic video gaming items 'cause that's what we're all about and that's what people are coming to see. (Working displays people can interact with sell better than non-working displays, by the way.) Prohibited items for sale include, but are not limited to: unlawful items, items of questionable legality (such as hacking tools and 'archived' software), "adult oriented" items, and food and drink. (There is food and drink available at the show.)
The show will occur in Saturday July 21, 2018 & Sunday July 22, 2018 from Noon to 7 PM. Vendor setup is between 10:00 AM and noon. If you show up early, you will be turned away; so, do not show up early. REPEAT! DO NOT SHOW UP EARLY! (Did we mention you shouldn't show up early?)
We have over 13000 square feet of space. However, we only have 91 tables, and based on last year's show, they will go fast!
We have two areas. One main room ( Giant Indoor Soccer Field ) that will be "flea market" style and one side room where vendors with arcade and pinball games will go. We have 82 tables in the main room and many "spaces" for arcade style cabinets and displays in the second area.

Vendors may choose their location, but the CCAG committee has the final decision on table reservations and vendor locations. (We can't have too many single tables dotting the place since most vendors take more than one table.)
Table rental cost which includes applicable Ohio Sales Tax is as follows:
8 foot table without electricity, $50.00. (Maximum of 4 per vendor)
8 foot table WITH electricity, $60.00. (Maximum of 4 per vendor)
Each table comes with 1 chair. Additional chairs can be rented at 1.00 each.
There are no curtains, backdrops, or "table skirts" available. You may not affix anything to the walls that may cause permanent damage.
Want Electricity? You Must rent a table with electricity. Let us know how many of your tables will be displaying items using electricity and bring at least one 25 foot extension cord and a power strip. You must use a power strip.
CCAG Setup: 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM. (This time is reserved for CCAG Committee Members to prepare the hall. If you show up during this time, you will find yourself drafted into helping, which would be much appreciated. No sales during this time. No vendors or attendees allowed in.)
Vendor Setup: 10:00 AM - Noon. (No sales during this time. No attendees allowed in. Staff will be on-hand to direct you to your table or Arcade Cabinet Space. Setup and tear down of your wares is your responsibility. Staff will not be on hand to "watch your tables" for during any personal breaks; make friends with nearby vendors or bring a helper. :)

Payment for Tables
All tables reserved by email on or at least a week before the show, must be paid for, which means the payment must clear our bank on or at least a week before the show.
In the email we send you confirming your reservation, we will also send you information on how to pay. (Key sponsor Video Game Connection is handling our billing this year.) You will receive a confirmation email from us when your payment clears that will be your receipt. There are no refunds after the first of the month prior to the show .
Sign-In and Registration
Upon arrival all vendors and their helpers must register their name, mailing address, and email address with the CCAG committee. If you do not register, you don't get in.
...And a Touch of Security
While on the grounds of the facility, all persons will wear wrist straps. No exceptions!
Vendors are not required to donate a door prize, but it would be nice if you did. Something small, something big, something unusual. It really doesn't matter. If you tell us what you're donating ahead of time, we will list it on our web site and on the program we will be passing out at the show. It will help us to defray the costs of holding the show even more.
Non-Attending Supporting Vendors
We realize that Cleveland, Ohio is pretty far for some vendors to attend, yet they'd like to support our show - and receive all of the benefits of being an attending vendor without the benefit of actually attending - with a door prize. If you'd like to do that, we will list you on our site an in the CCAG program as a non-attending, door prize donating vendor. Just Contact Us and let's get you set up as a non-attending, door prize donating vendor.
