Accessibility

We want to make sure that GeekGirlCon is a great experience filled with excitement, education, and fun for all. We strive to create an event that works for every attendee—we think inclusively about the range of our attendees needs, employ the best practices to continually review our spaces, improve as we are able, and learn from our mistakes.

All public areas, lobbies, exhibit halls, and meeting rooms within the SCC are ADA accessible. You can read more about the features and resources that will be available over the weekend—it’s extremely important to us that GeekGirlCon is a safe and comfortable environment for everyone!

Panels and Workshops

Each year our programming content is a mix of community-organized submissions and staff-curated content, including content featuring industry guests. Look for panels on a variety of topics, as well as workshops to get hands-on.

Exhibitors

Who doesn’t love a little bit of shopping? We definitely do, and we’re beyond for you to see all of the goodies that our exhibitors will be bringing to this year’s convention.

Every exhibitor at GeekGirlCon is hand-selected—from artists to artisans, shop a variety of hand-crafted wares and the like. From t-shirts and fashionable accessories, to art prints and stickers, there’s bound to be a little something for every geek.

Gaming

Calling all rogues, bards, warlocks—prepare your favorite dice and pack your controllers, the gaming floor at GeekGirlCon is expanding and bigger than ever before! This year, we’ll be hosting two rooms filled to the brim with your favorite games. To optimize your gaming experience, we’ll have one room dedicated to tabletop and one specifically for video games.

Each year, our gaming team works hard to bring you the joy and discovery of storytelling, role-playing, worldbuilding, strategizing, and exploration.
