What is a Hall table?
A Hall Table is a free table given to promote a fan group (fan clubs, podcasts, local authors, other conventions, etc.), staffed by badge-holding representatives of the organization. This table is in an open area, usually a hallway, with no expectation of exclusivity or security of personal items.
Table sizes vary according to what is available but typically are 6’ long. Tables are often shared and are assigned by our Hall Table coordinator, up to two people at a time depending on availability. Decisions about who shares and why are made by Starbase Indy and are final.
If you are interested in having a Hall Table, please contact us.
Types of Hall Tables
Author tables are offered in order to showcase the author, not to market the author’s work. While sales are permitted at the author table, it is not a substitute for a vendor booth. There is to be no upright material - books, pricing signage, or graphics. Books may be stacked on the table but overstock should be kept to a minimum.
Authors are encouraged to use this opportunity to reach the greatest audience possible by spending ample time at their table as well as taking advantage of the ability to schedule a time for an Author Reading during the weekend. Contact Programming to get your reading time on the official scheduling grid.
Fan organizations are offered tables for their use throughout the weekend. Everyone working the table must have a badge.For any activities outside of general information and recruiting, please contact Programming.
