CIL-Con 2019

More than an event... we are family!

First and foremost, if you are considering being a vendor for CIL-Con.... THANK YOU!   Without awesome people like you this event would not happen!   CIL-Con is more than Central Illinois Premiere Convention it is also a family!    If you are returning, welcome back!   If this will be your first time, welcome and prepare to be surrounded with new friends!

CIL-Con is held at the Cross County Mall in Mattoon, Illinois.     We are absolutely FREE to spectators which means they have more money to spend with our vendors.  :)   We pride ourselves on keeping the event free so that the community can afford to bring their entire family out and experience a ComicCon type atmosphere.    

Each vendor spot comes with 1 table, 2 chairs, and includes electricity.  Additional tables can be rented for $10 each, or you can bring your own.  Each vendor spot is $50.00.  Vendors may purchase more than one spot if more space is needed.    Here is some important items to remember:

  • Please bring an extension cord.   
  • Tableclothes ARE NOT included, so please bring your own. 
  •  Due to new rules with the mall you will not be able to attach promotional materials to the walls, so if you have banners, etc you will need to bring stands. 
  • Wi-Fi coverage is NOT guaranteed so please be prepared for your electronic transactions.
