Vendors from all over Europe and some even farther away will sell their J-POP, anime, manga and cosplay-related merchandise in the Dealer Room. This has always been an important part of our festival and a huge attraction for our guests. It really is the easiest way to shop for anime and manga products in one single spot anywhere in the Benelux countries! The Dealer Room will be open on every day the festival is running.
With a new venue comes a new location for our Dealer Room. More information about the new Dealer Room will follow soon. With several hundred tables with items to choose from we advise you to come with enough cash in your pockets, but pin and PayPal are becoming more popular options these days.
The merchandise offered by the vendors will be monitored by J-POP Foundation Staff, in cooperation with Fake is Sad, to make sure no bootleg material is being sold. All merchants are forbidden to bring and sell bootleg material. Despite our best efforts some bootlegs might slip through. If you see any, please contact the Dealer Room staff. For people that don’t know what we’re talking about, bootleg means: an illicitly-produced, distributed or sold product.
We expect a queue, because of the large volume of people wanting to access the Dealer Room and the time they want to spend in there. It may take some time before you can access the area. There is really no practical way to avoid this, so please don’t be too upset about it. Access will be on a first-come, first-served basis; except that disabled people and crew have priority entry to the area.
In the Dealer Room
In our Dealer Room you cannot just buy goods from our Dealers, you can also sell your old items at the Bring & Buy. You will also find many self-publishing manga and comics artists, usually working together in a group as a Doujinshi Circle. If you think just three days of festival a year is not enough, visit one of the other conventions that have a booth in our Dealer Room and buy a ticket from them.
Saturday: 11:00 - 19:30
Sunday: 11:00 - 17:00
Miatzy's Bring & Buy
The Bring & Buy is a part of the festival where you, (only) as a Whole Weekend visitor, can hand us your used anime and manga-related items and we will (try) to sell them for you in our Dealer Room. All festival visitors can buy these submitted items at the Bring & Buy table but only Whole Weekend visitors can submit items to be sold.
