In addition to the RainFurrest badge, Dealers and Assistants will be issued a ribbon which grants access to the Dealers Den. To be behind a table or in the Dealers Den during setup hours, you MUST have one of these ribbons on your badge. You cannot trade ribbons, but if you require additional ribbons for additional assistants, please let us know. If you do not have a ribbon and are found behind a table, you will be asked to leave the Dealer's Den.

Please be courteous.

Dealers may only post items on the walls and floor using materials approved by Hilton® Seattle Airport & Conference Center. Specifically, only gaff tape may be used on the floor, and only painter's tape may be used on the walls. You are responsible for any damages you incur by hanging items on the walls.
