Dealer room

Vendors from all over Europe and some even further away will be selling their j-pop, anime, manga and cosplay related merchandise in the dealer room. This has always been an important part of our festival and a huge attraction to our guests. It really is the easiest way to shop for anime and manga products in one single spot anywhere in the Benelux countries! The dealer room will be open on every day the festival is running.

The huge Beethovenzaal will be overflowing with vendors. With over a hundred tables with items to choose from we advise you to come with enough cash in your pockets! Yes, seriously! Most vendors can accept cash only.

The merchandise offered by the vendors will be monitored by J-POP Foundation Staff to make sure no bootleg material is being sold. All merchants are forbidden to bring and sell bootleg material. For people that don't know what we're talking about, bootleg means: an illicitly produced, distributed or sold product.

Because of the large volume of people wanting to access the dealer area and the time they want to spend in there, we expect a queue and it may take some time before you can access the area. There is really no practical way to avoid this, so please don't be too upset about it. Access will be on a first-come, first-served basis; except that handicapped people and crew have priority entrance to the area.
