I ran across an interesting article which surveyed more then a 100 vendors/talent at conventions.  The article went into the amt of money made at each con.

That's interesting to see. I skimmed the report. I might've missed it but I'm assuming the numbers are based on profits and not flat sales amounts? I'd like to see booth/table costs compared also.

I also don't think it said if they averaged the amount of days each show was. For instance, SDCC is a 4-5 day event when other shows are only 1-2 days.

It's teh lil one! Sent while on the move!!

I was reading that article a couple of days ago, and one thing that struck me was how little these small artists make. Even at the top cons, it was something like $1,000 to $2,000 per show, and that's before all of their costs. It's really not very much, and it brought home to me how much they appreciate any business they can get.

I'm surprise by how much they make. At SDCC I walk around in artist alley while people are fighting over free swag. I wonder around and  just talk to the vendors. Some will be sitting there looking bored, I'll ask them questions about their booth and boy do they light up and go on about their books, art and clothing. Just to listen to them and their passion it's pretty darn cool.

Chris:
Am I missing it or did the article mention how much the vendors have to pay for their booths at the various shows?

At smaller shows for example when they vendors only have to pay $100 for their booth, they bring lower cost stuff because they are less concerned about recouping their costs.

The profit they make per booth after costs would be interesting to have.
