Stable connection and fast fingers?
I've never failed to get into a FCFS, and had my spot in the A-kon app saved in two seconds.
Know what they're going to be asking for (If it's Texas, studio name and tax ID), and keep it on hand. There are apps that let you copy and paste multiple things at once so you can just unload long strings of info that take too long to type, and probably wouldn't get picked up by autofill.
Copied the info from last year. It migjt not be the exact same, but it might help? They sent it out through email so it's a good idea to be subscribed to the mailing list.
>People can start signing in for a chance at a table, starting at 5:00pm on Thursday. People will be added to an onsite list, and the following information will be taken: Name, Business name, website, phone number.
>We will be using the website to jury the business, just to make sure that it fits in the alley. If it passes (which is not hard to do) then we will call the number and invite the person to pay for a table and as many extra badges as they need. Payment will be either cash, check, or via PayPal.
>Please note that onsite sign-ups for potential tables are on a first come, first served basis.
>I should not have to say it, but there is a very good chance that there may not be any onsite sign-ups. Unfortunately, this year has been tighter than usual, in that there was almost zero movement from the wait list. However, if you are going to be at the convention anyway, and if you want to give it a try, there may be an opportunity.
