I am going to Hanami con in Ludwigshafen and noticed that they did not have an Artist Alley, or from what I could tell, (Google Translate is sometimes quite confusing XD) even a Dealer's Room! I was pretty shocked, even after hearing that it was a relatively small convention. Every convention I've been to in the U.S. has had both, so I thought they would have them here as well. I tried looking up which conventions have Artist Alleys in them, and found only two conventions in all of DE had them.
(scroll down for Europe)
Is this list wrong? Why do so few conventions allow Artist Alleys? If the convention has no Artist Alley, but they have a Dealer's Room, what would an aspiring seller have to do to get a slot?
Thanks for any answers you can provide. ^___^
