Welcome to the information page for tabletop game booths here at Cecil Con 2019. Below is information about participating at our convention. Tabletop Game Booths are FREE to those individuals, organizations, and studios that wish to promote their alpha/beta games, finished games, and demos. This type of space is NOT for selling merchandise. Applications are online only. Please read through everything before applying and don’t hesitate to contact us to ask any questions that may not already be addressed below.

Selection Information


All tabletop game applications are reviewed by the Cecil Con staff and Game Master Matt. We have a more limited number of card and board game booths so we encourage you to apply early. These booths are to promote game studios and their creations.

After the application is received Cecil Con staff will immediately deliberate and inform the main contact person of acceptance, as long as space permits. If space fills up at our convention prior to receiving your application you will be placed on the waitlist. If there are any dropouts at any time before the convention we will contact the next group on the waitlist to fill the space.

We ask that you fill out the form in its entirety. Please make sure you do not skip over any questions. Please include a photo of a past booth setup, a link to your website, and a detailed description of the information you’d like to share.

General Tabletop Game Booth Information

The Tabletop Game Center is in the Phys Ed Building on the 1st floor, by the Artist Alley/Vendor’s Hall.


It is the responsibility of the card & board game booth’s main contact person and their helper to keep an eye on their table/space during their time at our convention. Cecil Con staff will be on duty and making rounds during the convention at all times but we will not be able to sit at tables to relieve you. We strongly encourage you to bring a table helper if you feel you will need relief. Cecil College assumes no responsibility for injuries, missing items or damages at any time.

Wall Displays

Because of facility regulations, special approved tape must be used to tape things to the walls of any College building. If you have wall space and wish to display on the wall something you MUST check with the Cecil Con staff before doing so.


Outlets are only provided for those card and board game booths who request it. We do our best to provide power to tables that make a request for it, but it may not be guaranteed. However, if a participant brings an extension cord and power strip we may be able to make power accessible to your table even if it’s not immediately placed by an outlet.
