18 weeks left to go, just over four months, and it will time to open the Chicago Steampunk Exposition!
A lot is happening behind the scenes with building the program and setting up ticket sales for one day passes, high teas, and the other banquets that the Exposition has to offer. We are also working in collaboration with our exhibitors on an exciting promotion in which those who purchase tickets in advance are automatically entered into a fortnightly drawing to win prizes! More details coming before the end of May 2019.
This week we have continued to feature some of our amazing vendors, authors, and artists whom you will find in the Exhibitor Hall and Artist Alley, which is poised to be perhaps the BIGGEST collection of exhibitors at a Midwest Steampunk event!
As the weeks continue to countdown, we will bring you more profiles to highlight all the amazing things to see and buy at the Exposition. We do have a few spots left in the Exhibitor Hall and Artists’ Alley, so if you would like to apply please click HERE.
Hotel Rooms 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). CLICK HERE to book your rooms online, or call (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.
This month we are having a special event for our Volunteers to help run the Exposition; a convention is only as strong as its team of volunteers.
