As I am sure you know, GeekGirlCon ‘17 is just around the corner. And by just around the corner I mean 224 days away. That’s practically no time at all.
One of the first steps of any avid con-goer’s preparation is determining what their involvement will look like this time around. Maybe you’ve thought of exactly the panel or special event GeekGirlCon’s been missing. Perhaps you’ll join our team of Agents and sign up for this mailing list. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re interested in being an Exhibitor.
And, lucky you, Exhibitor applications are now open on our website. This is your chance to get your geeky artwork, plushies, cosmetics, games, socks, or whatever else you have to sell out into the world and into the hands of the most enthusiastic, welcoming, and all-around lovable crowd of nerds Seattle’s ever seen.
To get you into the exhibiting spirit, here’s a delightful collection of pictures from GeekGirlCons past. And don’t forget to check out the application!
If one of your resolutions for the new year* was to support a nonprofit that supports women and girls in STEAM fields, comics, games, and other geekdoms, now’s the chance to act on it.
GeekGirlCon is looking for volunteers for 2017! With our well-documented convention expansion last year, we were looking to hire more Agents than ever before, and we’ve also brought on more staff to support the organization year-round.

We have even loftier plans for 2017, and bigger plans means a bigger army of dedicated, awesome volunteers. We’d love for you to join us for a whole plethora of reasons. Because we’re an amazing organization and an even better community. Because we’re dedicated to being able to make room for what we love doing. Because the representation of women and girls in all forms of geekery matters. Because we’re going to need all the help we can get.
Hope you’ve had enough time to recover from GeekGirlCon ‘16, because it’s official—GeekGirlCon ‘17 is coming!
On September 30 and October 1, 2017, join us at the Conference Center at the Washington State Convention Center for another two days of geeky goodness. We’ll have everything from cosplay and panels to exhibitors and musical guests. We can’t wait to see you!
