The Crew of the Expo Staff continues to grow and we are pleased to announce that Steampunk convention veterans Greg Jensen and Andre Malone-Mahdi have joined the team.

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.

Get Involved

Despite already having several Featured Speakers, vendors, and Entertainers lined up for 2019, and we invite you join us to Vend, to Present, and to Volunteer at the convention.
