Exhibit Space Transfer

Exhibit Space Transfer Procedures for Planet Comicon Kansas City

To all exhibitors with paid exhibit space for the March 2020 Planet Comicon Kansas City

A message from Christopher Jackson, founder and CEO of PCKC, and the team at Planet Comicon Kansas City.  January 26, 2021

Current circumstances involving the pandemic require that we postpone Planet Comicon Kansas City from its currently scheduled dates of April 16-18, 2021 to new dates of August 20-22, 2021. New covid-19 infections and reported deaths from covid-19 are at new highs almost daily. The Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri has issued an executive order extending the state of emergency in our city through at least May 15, 2021.  It will not be possible to host any large events in Kansas City until at least after that date. The good news – with the beginnings of vaccine distribution and the hope that by June or July much of the population can be vaccinated, we have high hopes that Planet Comicon KC can have an event in August. 

This postponement of Planet Comicon Kansas City is regrettable, however we support this position of the city. The health and safety of those attending Planet Comicon Kansas City is paramount. PCKC has been providing quality entertainment to our fans for more than two decades. PCKC provides a venue for fans to meet their favorite creators and media celebrities, to shop for genre related or hard to find collectibles, to enjoy the amazing cosplay and props and displays, to game, to attend panels and presentations and nighttime activities, and so much more. It provides a safe venue for geeks to be themselves and to meet other like-minded geeks. We have developed a community of fans who enjoy and support our show. That support is greatly appreciated. Once it is safe for fans to gather again, we will be back stronger and better than ever.

EXHIBIT SPACE TRANSFER   

All exhibit space purchased for our March 2020 show was previously transferred to either our rescheduled August 2020 or April 2021 events (now both postponed).  Exhibitors may transfer their exhibit space to either August 20-22, 2021 OR our regular 2022 spring show now scheduled for April 22-24, 2022 (exhibitor’s choice).  This transfer is beneficial to paid exhibitors, as rates for purchase of new exhibit space at those shows will increase as follows:

Initial August 2021 and April 2022 exhibit space prices (when that space is offered for sale)
(Note: It is unlikely that additional space will be offered for sale at the August 2021 event.)

Corner booth – $1000

In-line booth – $800

Artists Alley corner space – $700

Artists alley space – $350

Crafter corner space – $725

Crafter space – $360

Exhibitors who have paid 2020 exhibit space will not to be subject to the price increases reflected above for their transferred, paid exhibit space (same booth configuration). All unpaid space will be billed at the new rates. No additional exhibit space will be sold at 2020 prices.  Please note:  It is unlikely any additional exhibit space will be sold for the August 2021 show.

BONUS:  Each exhibitor who has paid exhibit space for the PCKC 2020 will also receive a Planet Comicon Kansas City exclusive, limited edition, licensed “The Child” pin from The Mandalorian (commonly known as “Baby Yoda”).  This will be one pin per exhibit space order, not per booth or table and the pin will be provided to the exhibitor on site at PCKC.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding any aspect of exhibit space transfer, please contact Phil Lawrence at [email protected].
