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 Atlantic room at the World Forum 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 and the line for the ATM at World Forum will be long.

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. Despite our best efforts we some bootlegs might slip through. If you see any please contact the dealer room staff. 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.


The Dealers, Doujinshi circles and other Conventions

In our dealer room you cannot just buy goods from our Dealers, participate in the Wacompetition computer drawing competion, sell your old items at the Bring & Buy, get your Cosplay on picture at the NoZLan stage and try out on-line games and computer drawing tools. Also you will find many self publishing manga and comics artists usually working together in a group as a Doujinshi Circle and if you think just three days of festival a year is not enough, just visit one of the other Conventions in our dealer room.
