Inside The Exhibitors Room At Dragon*Con

I got the opportunity to look around at the exhibitor's room in the Marriot as they were setting up today. Lots of cardboard boxes, the smell of plastic, and dozens of hard working dealers trying to get their product to sell.

One such dealer, Doug D. representing the cartoon and web comic Atomsplit expressed the mood as "…hurry up and wait, but cautiously optimistic. Neighbors checking out neighbors, see if there's anyone from last year.

Doug D. said that they don't have to wait in registration lines. The hotel doesn't provide any handcarts, but most booths are set up in 4-6 hours so everybody can get a good night's sleep before opening at 1PM on Saturday. That is unless your at one of the mammoth booths that occupy the corner spots.

Look for more perspective from the dealers once they finish setting up.
