Additionally, we will update you immediately of any new news (via email or other), so you are as prepared as possible to be successful at the show.
· This is a family-friendly show in a small shopping mall, so no adult or perceived offensive materials allowed, even if collectible/nostaglia (includes Playboys and anything similar).
