Accommodations fit for a Geek!

Once again, we’ve partnered up with Hotel Max to bring an awesome deal for all you con-goers*!

If you’re planning to stay in town for GeekGirlCon this October 27-28, we have a group rate especially for our convention attendees. For just $169 per night, you get a spacious modern hotel room with a king size bed, free wifi, waived facilities fees, and additional amenities! And, if you want to be extra fancy, valet parking is only an additional $30.

Hotel Max is just a safe, short jaunt down to the Conference Center at the Washington State Convention Center, so you’ll be able to be in the city right when the convention opens, and you’ll have a place to keep your cosplay in pristine condition, or store all your Artist Alley swag. And even after our convention doors close, you can continue getting your geek on with various events around the city, or just chilling in your hotel room and watching your favorite TV series.

And, bonus! One of the reasons why we’re so excited to partner with Hotel Max again is that Hotel Max supports our organizational mission–for every room night that gets booked, we get a $5.00 rebate! So you can make your dollar go further in supporting our organization, and also be right onsite for the convention! It’s a win-win situation, if you think about it.

To get in on this awesome deal, book online or contact Hotel Max on +1 866.833.6299 and make sure you mention that you want to book with the GeekGirlCon 18 rate. The group rate is good for October 25 through October 29.

Make sure you don’t miss out! See you in October!

Submit Your Panel Ideas for GeekGirlCon ’18!

Everyone! GeekGirlCon ’18 season is officially upon us!

On our part, we’re getting things organized and settled behind the scenes. But what we need from you all, what we need each year to make GeekGirlCon the most memorable and magical weekend we possibly can, is programming submissions. Specifically, we need the excellent panel ideas that we’ve come to expect from our GeekGirlCon family.

This year, your deadline to submit applications for all kinds of programming is April 30. You have some time, so use it to refine your applications and track down potential panelists. While you’re working, here are some FAQs about panel applications with answers from our very own Panel Program staffers.
