Artist Alley tables for Animé Los Angeles 2019 are currently SOLD OUT.

All tables have been sold. Confirmation emails have been sent to everyone who has a confirmed table space. Please check your spam/junk mail folders as needed.

If you were charged in error or were charged more then once for your table space, you will need to contact our payment vendor directly. Unfortunately Anime Los Angeles has no access to their system and we cannot assist with any payment issues. All payment issues must be directed to Member Solutions:

While there is a wait list, at this time it is extremely unlikely there will be any further openings for the 2019 convention. The wait list is full and closed at this time.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we attempt to have these issues addressed and resolved as quickly as possible.

4) Will artists be able to move-in and set-up on Thursday, January 10th, 2019 in the morning?
To avoid artists having to go through security with all their materials (which may take a considerable amount of time depending on the amount of materials to be checked) on Thursday morning, it is strongly recommended and encouraged that artists plan on arriving on Wednesday for move-in and set-up. Artists arriving Thursday morning may miss the check-in time depending on security lines and the amount of materials each artist have to be checked.

5) Can artists share a table with another artist? (updated 08/10/2018)
Yes. Please note however each table space is only provided two badges (see next question).

6) Can artists buy additional convention badges (beyond the 2 provided with the artist table space)?
No additional Artist Alley badges may be purchased. Any additional badges (beyond the 2 provided with the Artist Alley table space) must be purchased as regular attendee badges at the current registration rate.

7) What is the cost of the Artist Alley table space?
Each Artist Alley table space (limit one per artist) will consist of one 6’ table; 2 chairs; 2 Artist Alley badges at a cost of $300.00

8) Can artist choose the location of their table in Artist Alley?
No. Unfortunately due to the number of spaces, table placement will be assigned randomly. However artists will have the option to request placement next to other artists (requests are not guaranteed and assume all artists have successfully purchased table space in Artist Alley).

9) How will table spaces be sold?
Artist Alley table spaces will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

10) Will we be able to list an Artist name for display?
Yes. You will also be asked to list an Artist Display Name (i.e.: “Art by Swordfish”, etc.). This is what will be listed (as opposed to real names or badge names) in the various listings of AA tables on our website, publications, etc.
