Well, to get back on topic, there should be many of the smaller companies represented this year. If you really want to see a company there the best way to make it happen is to contact them and ask them, and get your friends to do so. If they know an event is that popular, and that people want them there, there is a good chance they will make an attempt to be there.
We have many vendors who want to take part in Living Legends this year who have already contacted us. We have been very focused making many changes this year to make LL better than ever and we have yet to finalize pricing for vendors. It is my plans for this week
