Steampunk Gaming Partnership

The Chicago Steampunk Exposition is the new sister show to the International Steampunk Symposium (est. 2012) and for September 2019 is poised to draw thousands of attendees from Chicago, the Steampunk fandom, and beyond.

Our Gaming Track is dedicated to promoting games that fit the themes of Steampunk, the Victorian & Edwardian era, and other such similar aesthetics, and we are excited to offer opportunities for gaming businesses to join the convention with our Gaming Partnership package.

The package comes with a number of features that are part exhibitor, part sponsor, and part program partner; a booth in the Exhibitor Hall, an ad in the program book, logo and link on the Expo website, and your own boardroom for scheduling games in a more focused environment.

The vendor space in the Grand Ballroom follows the hours of the Exhibitor Hall, but your Gaming Room on the Lower Level can run throughout the weekend for whatever times you wish to schedule during the convention’s programming hours; you can also sell products from your Gaming Room.

Gaming Rooms are in Wabash, Wells, Washington, Burton, and Banks with open gaming in Sherman/Seneca – click image to enlarge

The Chicago Steampunk Exposition has programming scheduled that utilizes all the meeting rooms that the Westin O’Hare has to offer. The Exhibitor Hall is always a big draw for attendees with vendors, exhibitors, entertainers, and displays, but the Lower Level (which is additionally connected by an escalator, giving a very open feel between both floors) features several of our panel rooms for presentations.

We are very excited by all the fun gaming opportunities this package has to offer, and hope that your business will join us for this great weekend.
