Tell us about your business

WisCon is a feminist science fiction & fantasy convention that includes academic programming as well as many critical examinations of books and popular media. While general science fiction & fantasy related items are always appreciated by our attendees, we are particularly interested in items that include elements of feminism as well as the related subjects of gender, sexuality, race, class, and disability.


Space is allotted as 6' tables. Nominal use of space beyond the table surface subject to approval. Please choose the maximum amount you would use; vendors may be allocated less space than they apply for in order to increase the diversity of the Dealer's Room as a whole.
Vendors who need consistent access to electrical outlets will be given priority for the tables nearest to those outlets, to minimize tripping hazards and ease room setup.
