In addition to these two pieces of news, a new Dealer's Room and Artist's Alley has also been announced.

Canavan Arena is larger and has a higher capacity than where the Dealer's Room/Artist's Alley was previously held.

Those interested in attending CPAC this year as a vendor or artist should email [email protected] or [email protected] The staff recommends anyone who is planning on doing this should do so as soon as possible to avoid the waiting list that had to be implemented last year.
