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 2013
- Display their wares for classic and current computing and gaming
equipment at the show. Please bring along whatever you like, but
you'd be wise to have plenty of classic computing and 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 an on site tavern that will handle the food
and drink for the entire show.)
- Have a link to their site is published on our home page.
(Optional. This link will remain for one month on the show's homepage then carry over to our
"Historical CCAG section for the show for one year after the show's date.)
- Contact information published in our show program.
(Optional. Only available for pre-registered vendors.)
- Allowed to have their literature distributed by CCAG staff to
attendees when they arrive. (Optional.)
- Receive a list of attendees who would like to be contacted outside of
the show. (Optional. The number of attendees "opting on"
this list will not be 100% of all attendees.)
The show will occur in June 22, 2013 from Noon to 8 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 4000 square feet of space, lots of chairs, and electrical
outlets to spare. However, we only have 50 tables, and based on last
year's show, they will go fast!
We have two rooms. One main room that will be "flea market" style and
one side room where vendors with stand-up displays and cabinets will go.
(This is because we need to keep a minimum distance between the rows in the
"flea market" area.) We have 50 tables in the main room and 4 "spaces"for
arcade style cabinets and displays in the second room.

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.
If your tables are not paid for then, they will go into the pool of open tables
and will be issued on a first come, first served basis on the day of the show at 10:00 AM.
In the email we send you confirming your reservation, we will also send you
information on how to pay. (Key sponsor Video 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 .
You may only pay for tables at the show by cash!
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 have their
hands stamped. 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. Your byline won't be as big as vendors who do appear, but
it will be here and in the hands of every attendee who walks through the door.
Just Contact Us and let's get you set up as a non-attending, door prize donating vendor.
