  • Where can I find these pins during Awesome Con? Pins can be found at participating vendor booths on the Show Floor in Expo Hall C, at participating Artist Alley tables in Expo Hall B, at the official Awesome Con Show Store in Hall A, and in Tabletop Gaming in Room 140AB, and of course – on our staff members! See above for more specific location details. Every participating vendor and artist will have a flag on their table, designating their participation, and they will also have a printed checklist you can have to keep track of how your collection is growing!
  • How do I trade someone for a pin? Follow our simple pin trading rules and you’ll do great!
    • Pins must be traded one at a time
    • Only Pin Bazaar / Official Awesome Con 2021 pins are eligible to be traded.
    • Pins should have their pin back on them when trading, so no one gets poked!
    • Please ask politely before attempting a pin trade. Be mindful of people’s personal space and be kind! Always say please and thank you! Don’t touch another fan or staff member’s lanyard or pins without their permission. Please keep our Covid-19 protocols in mind, and sanitize before and after your pin trade.
    • Staff members cannot decline to trade with you as long as you are willing to trade an Official Awesome Con 2021 pin or Pin Bazaar pin, but fans can decline. Please respect the person’s decision.
