Long Island TCG Show Vendor Policy

All vendors who book one or more tables agree to abide by the vendor policy below:

 

1. Sales Policy:

 

   - To purchase a table for our event, vendors must be 18 years of age or older. Once a vendor purchases a table for the event, all sales are considered final, and no refunds will be honored under any circumstances. Attempting to receive a credit back or canceling the charge with your credit card company after purchasing a table may result in being barred from future shows. Vendors are responsible for carefully considering their participation and table needs before completing their purchase. Vendors are strictly prohibited from reselling or transferring their tables to any other individual or entity. The business or entity that purchased the table must be the sole occupant of the table at the event. Any attempt to resell or transfer tables without the explicit consent of the Long Island TCG Show staff is strictly prohibited and may result in penalties, including but not limited to: being barred from future participation in our events, cancellation, and forfeiture of payment. Vendors may only purchase tables directly from the Long Island TCG Show staff. Any purchase of tables from individuals or entities other than the Long Island TCG Show staff is strictly prohibited. This policy is in place to ensure transparency, fairness, and accountability in all transactions related to vendor participation in our events. Dealer understands the payment policy and agrees to pay the fees as listed. No tables are guaranteed until payment is received. Checks with insufficient funds will be charged a $25.00 service fee. Vendors will not sell any unlicensed or bootleg material. The Promoter has the right to eject vendors from the event without refund.
