We’re In This Together
To the GeekGirlCon Community,
The safety, security, and health of our attendees are of the utmost importance to GeekGirlCon. Beyond the scope of the convention, we want to make sure that you feel supported during the COVID-19 outbreak. We will take on each day as a community and communicate all updates should they arise.
During this time of uncertainty, we recognize that late October feels like the distant future. However, we wanted to reach out and let you know that as of this time we are still planning on GeekGirlCon 2020 happening as scheduled. Passes are now available and we are actively accepting applications for exhibitors, sponsors, and programming content. We look forward to seeing you there!
In the interim, we are taking several precautions to ensure a safe and successful convention this fall and to support the community today:
- We are working closely with the Washington State Convention Center to ensure that we can count on a safe and hygienic convention. The Convention Center is committed to the standards set by the Center for Disease Control and have protocols in place for everyone’s protection.
- We understand that this is a difficult time for many of the contributors and attendees who are small independent businesses. We would like to work with you to help you promote your business during this downtime by highlighting and sharing your work with our community on social media. Let’s help one another continue to build community during the quarantine.
Our staff is committed to monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and will keep you informed if any changes are in order. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and the GeekGirlCon blog for live updates as we continue to watch and assess the situation.
Thank you to those who have already purchased tickets, submitted their applications, and committed to attending in 2020. Your support allows us to continue our mission during this time of uncertainty. As a grassroots, all-volunteer organization, we will continue our efforts to ensure that all geeks are supported, welcomed, and encouraged to pursue what they love.
Stay healthy, stay safe, and practice social distancing. We’ll get through this together.
