EXHIBIT WITH PHOENIX FAN FUSION

Bring your unique, geeky, pop culture product to our attendees
 

Exploring and shopping in our Exhibitor Hall is the #1 activity and highlight our attendees experience during their day (or weekend) at Fan Fusion.  We feature a curated exhibitor hall for those whose products or services cover pop culture.  Comic Books, Superheroes, Sci Fi, Horror, Anime, Gaming, and Fantasy are all accepted genres we celebrate.  

We seek to showcase those vendors and artists, authors, creators, and dealers who fit these genres and who offer a product, or in limited cases, a service, that is able to be redeemed by our attendees onsite.  We want our attendees to walk away with smiles and bags of purchased goodies that they can only get at Phoenix Fan Fusion.   

Phoenix Fan Fusion offers five types of space: four table (Artist, Author, Creator, Dealer) and one booth type.  You may only apply for one table type, though you may apply for one table type AND an Exhibitor Corner Booth if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining space within Phoenix Fan Fusion 2022. Please read the table type descriptions carefully, and email exhibitor@phoenixfanfusion.com with any questions.

We anticipate space will be extremely limited for our May 27-29, 2022 event.

We do not accept multi-level marketing, cosmetic, toiletries (which include bath or body related products), or food related creators or vendors.  The Phoenix Convention Center further restricts vendors from selling any airsoft replica guns, knives, swords, or live steel products.

Additional information on each type can be found on the application page for each listed below. 

ADVERTISING AND SPONSORSHIP

Looking for a targeted mass audience for your brand and your product or service does not fall within the pop culture genres we celebrate?

 

 

Our Advertising, Sponsorship, and Corporate Opportunity Packages will help you achieve your goals with onsite activations and digital, social, and print advertising.
