There are now 39 weeks left . . . we’ve been stoking the steam, and things are about to move into a higher gear!

Professional graphic designer, and captain of the Airship Caduceus, Jennifer Noran has been working on a new logo for the Exposition. Professional web designer, and senior admin of Chicagoland Steampunk Society, Eduardo Miguel Questell has been working on a new look for the Exposition website. Currently the magic and the mojo of both are being mixed in our giant Exposition boilers and we are set to reveal our new look in 2019!

Also for January 2019, we shall be able to reveal the first wave of vendors and artists who will be selling their fine wares in the Exposition Exhibitor Hall this September.

We are VERY excited for 2019, as this is when we truly begin to bring the Exposition together and show you all the amazing things that the convention will have to offer 😀

We invite you join us to Vend, to Present, and to Volunteer at the convention.

Staying in Chicago can be expensive, but we have managed to secure discounted rooms at the Westin O’Hare Hotel starting at $129 per night (plus taxes & fees)

Suites are also available for $179 per night (plus taxes & fees)

Links are coming soon, and we shall post them as soon as the hotel has them finalized, but in the meantime you can book your rooms by calling (800) 937-8461 or (847) 698-6000 and requesting the Steampunk Block when giving the dates of your reservation.
