The last 2 years I've missed submissions for getting a table at Artist Alley. I always end up checking to late and they're sold out. Can anyone tell me or help me out on when approx. they might be registering for 2012? Thanks for your time.

I'm not staff so this is in no way official, but I've been doing the AA since 2009s show. That said, it has opened on or around December 14th since then. My suggestion is to sign up for the Mailing List and if you can, follow ACEN's twitter. The Mailing List will be your best resource for information regarding the AA, Phillip is incredibly thorough and transparent with his alley :3

Watch the forums - the DH always posts info well before opening on how best to keep track of AA information including getting on the above mentioned mailing list. You'll see some threads update with new titles for 2012.

It is also correct that typically it opens in December - so you don't have to get too frantic until at least November for checking for updates. ;)

That said - the alley is more popular every year and does go FAST. You will want to mark your calendar and set aside time to apply.
2013 will be my 11th year at ACen! Staff for '09/'10/'11/'12/'13
Currently: Webmistress and Registration System Admin - my answers on them are as STAFF - PM if you need help

I always submit a deadline to our Webmaster and IT Department to release it on a certain date, and at a certain time in December. Unfortunately there has been technical problems and last minute codding, for some reason, these last 5 year, so it gets pushed back. Rest assured that Early December is a good time to keep a look out. Hopefully we can shatter our AA record of crashing the website 5 years running XD .

I know I am excited for this next year!!
