Promote it at WisCon!

  • contact:  promos@wiscon.net

WisCon is a convention with an annual membership in the neighborhood of 800-1,000 fans who are equally passionate about feminism and social justice as they are about the next awesome work of science fiction (or fantasy or horror, et cetera) they’re going to read, watch, or listen to.

Which means WisCon could be the perfect place to promote your project.  We have several ways that you can get information about your book, podcast, call for submission, fan group (and so on) into the hands of our members.  WisCon is an especially great venue for you to promote your own upcoming convention!

Advertising

WisCon offers paid advertising opportunities in our Souvenir Book and sponsorship of our Pocket Program Book.  Members eyes’ will be glued to our PPB all weekend long, and the Souvenir Book is a beloved item that’s taken home and enjoyed after the convention ends.  Each is a great way to get your message to our members in a memorable way.

Fan Tables

Our Fan Tables are locations that your group staffs during the weekend.  This is a great opportunity to actually interact with interested WisCon members and answer questions (and sign up new members!) on the spot.

Freebie Tables

When WisCon did away with swag bags (to reduce waste as part of our sustainability initiatives), we introduced our freebie tables.  The freebie tables are something of a smorgasbord of flyers, promotional items like bookmarks, buttons, and fake tattoos, and the occasional cache of advanced reader copies.  If you were hoping to send us the sort of small promotional item that would normally go into a convention swag bag, check out the information about our Freebie Tables.
