CatCon 2018 Prospective Exhibitor FAQ


When and where is CatCon 2018 taking place?

Saturday, August 4th, and Sunday, August 5th, 2018

The Pasadena Convention Center

300 E. Green Street, Pasadena, CA


How is CatCon different from other shows?

CatCon is the world’s largest convention for cat pop culture. We are a cash & carry consumer show that includes seminars, meet and greets, and engaging interactive experiences. We present a curated selection of brands and creators we love, work from creative minds that are debunking the cat-lady myth and putting forward unique artwork and innovative items that are high on design.  

The only cats allowed on-site are our guest talent and the cats available for adoption. (The celebrity Meet & Greets and Adoption Lounge are completely enclosed for the safety of the cats and our guests.)


What are you looking for in a prospective exhibitor?

Our committee is looking for stylish, chic, and unique offerings for cats and their people – companies and creators that embody the spirit and aesthetics of CatCon! We’re always on the hunt for great new cat products (accessories, furniture, toys, and more) and cat-centric products for people that are high-quality, stylishly smart, and created with care.

Check out our Gallery and YouTube Channel for pictures and videos of past CatCon exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, and activations, and don’t miss these terrific recaps of 2017’s show from The Pet Collective and The Ellen Show.


Can I choose where my exhibitor space is located?

As part of our curation of exhibitors, booth placement is assigned, but we can consider requests.


What options are available for non-profits?

Each year, we have a limited number of spaces available in our Awareness Pavilion for advocacy and educational organizations. Fundraising and direct sales during the show are not permitted in the Awareness Pavilion. Send an email to [email protected] with the subject “Awareness Pavilion” if your organization is interested in being considered.


All this sounds great! How do I apply to be an exhibitor?

Send an email to [email protected] to request an application. Include the name of your company, or DBA, and a link to your work online. To put together our curated presentation of exhibitors, each application is reviewed by our committee. Be prepared to submit additional product photos that represent the work you’ll be displaying at CatCon. The $25 application fee is non-refundable. Please note: submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance as a CatCon exhibitor.


I submitted my application. Now what?

You will hear from our exhibitor services team within 15 days of the receipt of your application and application fee. Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at CatCon, and good luck!
