Submitting a Vendor Application does not guarantee acceptance or a specific space assignment. Vending is not assigned on a first come, first served basis. Southwest Leather Conference selects its vendors based on a commitment to offer a diverse and unique selection of products to our attendees. Space is limited and we would like to have as many different vendors as possible. For those reasons we are limiting space size and only allowing one space per vendor.
