Artists: Check the FAQ for setup times.

Notable Changes from Last Year:
  • Dedicated Staff: Fellow artists RosaleenDhu and RivetSPOOn will be managing the Artists Market.
  • Dedicated Room: Room will be locked when not in use. No more sharing with Swap Meet. (ever!)
  • Buddy up: Initially only Half Tables will be available. Last year's Table Friend system has been extended so you can also specify Table Buddies and Subsidiary Artists.
  • New Artists Market Agreement. All participants must abide by this agreement.

Artists Registration is open now! DO NOT PANIC as there are still some tables left.
  • Room layout diagram may be found here.
  • Note: you will need a Full PMX membership, which may not be privileged (eg. Industry or Press). Registration info here.
  • We were unable to get the hotel to extend the room block deadline, however cheap online rooms may still be available for $10 more than the con rate (they were in late October). Reg badge pricing was extended through the initial grace period and payment deadline but is now the full at-con price of $50 for the Full convention weekend.
  • There will most likely be a few tables available at-con but they will cost $10-20 more and we can only take cash.

Step-by-Step Instructions if you would like one of the last remaining tables:
  1. If you have not registered for PMX yet, do that first. Registration info is here. At the registration receipt page, use the Add tickets button instead of paying as you can pay for your badge and table together later on.
  2. Use PMX event ticket registration to create your Artist ID (You'll also need it to remit payment for your table later):
    • If you just registered and used Add tickets, write down your account information from the message box near the top of the screen and keep that in a safe place.
    • If you already registered for PMX, read down the login page for new account help. Please check your spam folder for your ticket purchase password email as our automated emails are apparently too suspicious looking for some services (especially Yahoo! Mail).
  3. From the event ticket registration main screen, use the Artist button to Create an artist ID and send yourself an artist password. Please check your spam folder for the password email as that tends to happen. (Sorry about all the complexity here, but it's intended to handle large group memberships securely, among other things. PMX IT is planning a major overhaul in the near future.)
  4. Once you are in Artists Market Registration (see the login link at bottom of this page), go to the row General Tables and select a Full 6' table for $80 or a Half 3' space for $40.
  5. To expedite invoicing, notify the Artists Market staff using the contact webform at the bottom of this page that you have signed up for a table space.
  6. PMX Artists Market staff will email you when your table space has been entered into PMX event ticket registration for payment. Please pay for your space ASAP after receiving that notice as time is short. You can also check your account in event ticket registration at any time to see if your table has been entered; look for a column in the middle titled Artists Market Table (All Days).
The following may be viewed from Artists Market Registration via the Show button.

General Information

  • The Artists Market is located in the La Jolla Ballroom of the LAX Hilton.
  • The room fits a total of 36 full tables (6' x 2.5'). Two are reserved (for Control Desk and an Industry Guest), leaving 34 full tables available for Artists.
  • General Half Tables are priced at $40 each. General Full Tables are $80 each.
  • Early pre-sales for PMX 2012 will be offered onsite the last day of con. We will be returning to the LAX Hilton in 2012.

Friends, Subsidiaries, and Helpers

  • Table Buddies will be at the same table if both have half table spots. Otherwise they will be treated as higher priority Friends.
  • Table Friends will be placed as close to each other as we can manage without disrupting the process.
  • Subsidiary Artists must be confirmed friends, not have their own table assignment, and have a valid Full membership and Artist ID.
  • Artist Helpers don't have an Artist ID. Artists without a designated Subsidiary will receive one Artist Helper badge.

Returning Artists

  • If you are a returning Artist, be sure to indicate the Last Year you were in the Artists Market. We will do our best to make sure that everyone from 2010 who claims a spot is able to get one, and then anyone whose last year was 2009 since that was the last time we were at this location.

Decisions of PMX staff will be final and binding on all matters related to artists market table sales.
