Swap Meet

Bel Air Room - Friday and Saturday: 6:30 PM to 11:30 PM

Do you want to sell your collection of anime, manga, lolita clothes, jrock/jpop CDs, urban vinyl or anything that's related to Asian pop culture? Sell your collectibles at our Swap Meet!

Swap Meet Basic Information

The PMX Swap Meet will be located in the Bel Air Room, just off the main lobby of the LAX Hilton (next to the hotel restaurant). It will be open both Friday and Saturday from 6:30 PM to 11:30 PM each night. Setup time is 30 minutes prior to opening each day, and teardown time is 30 minutes after closing, so the room is available to vendors from 6 PM to midnight each day.

A total of 16 Full Table (or 32 Half Table) spaces are available each day and are sold separately, so vendors who want to sell on both days must purchase each day separately. Standard pricing for tables purchased online before the convention is as follows: a Half Table is 2.5 x 3 feet with one chair and costs $10 per day; a Full Table is 2.5 x 6 feet with two chairs and costs $20 per day. In the event of unsold spaces or no-shows at the convention, at-con tables may be sold at a 50% premium ($15 per Half Table per day, $30 per Full Table per day). One table is located at the end of the room and is designated as a Premium Table; it costs double the standard rate. Click here for a layout diagram of the room and tables.

Saturday is FULL. Friday has perhaps one table left. (as of 6:30 PM, Monday 11/5)
