There are now 46 weeks left until the opening of the Chicago Steampunk Exposition, and we are drawing closer to the December 1st, 2018 Vendor Application deadline for those wishing to be on our Priority List when we conduct the first wave of vendor reviews. Applications received after the first deadline will be placed on our Waiting List and be subject to availability of booths remaining.

Main Floor of the Exposition

Vendors will be located along with other exhibitors in our Exhibitor Hall which will occupy all three sections of the Grand Ballroom.

Next weekend we shall have a table at Teslacon in Madison, WI, so if you are that convention, please do stop by to say hello, and we can answer all sorts of questions that you may have about the Chicago Steampunk Exposition.

Hotel Rooms

[espro-slider id=459]

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.

If you are planning on vending at the Exposition, we have a separate block of rooms reserved for you. Upon acceptance to the show and settlement of vendor fees, details and instructions for booking a room in the Vendor Block will be emailed to you.
