So insert foot in my mouth! Sorry, If you want this to end. Then the Convention owners or managers need to vet the dealers and table buyers first before they sell them product/tables before the con opens up to the public. This method of selling tables to anybody that has money in hand, has to stop.
It's in their contract, they can't do it? Cool then enforce it.
I'm tired of articles like this. A con, if they really wanted to do this could stop it. We as fans have to be prepared for 30% to 50% less tables to look at.
Some of my closest friends own cons. They have a ton on their plate, so this isn't a primary subject for them. If you want it to be. Then you as a fan or as a dealer need to email them to let them know your concerns.
This isn't going away because of some disgruntle vendors or dealers. If you are from the inside looking out in this industry or the con scene. There is always disgruntle dealers and vendors, if it's not this it's something else.
