I attended GeekGirlCon last year, and it was so awesome it became my #1 show choice for 2012. I’ve attended other conventions, but there was just something different about the feel of GeekGirlCon. It had a positive energy, an openness, and a friendliness to it that I absolutely loved. I was also highly impressed with how well it was run, especially considering it was a brand new convention! I was sad when it was over (2 days was not enough!), but I’d made some new friends and was very eager for 2012.
As a vendor this year I won’t be able to see as much of the Con as I would like (I wish I could both vend and attend!), but I love what I do and I get to meet so many more awesome people than when I’m hurrying on my way from one panel to the next. I am hoping to be able to attend a panel or two since there will be a special helper in the booth (the very person who got me started in jewelry!). Here’s my panel/activity wishlist:
- Friday, August 10th
- Kickoff: Wizard of Oz Outdoor Screening
- Saturday, August 11th
- How to Do Your Own Kickstarter
- Art as Business Online
- Once More, with Feeling Sing-Along
- Sunday, August 12th
- Really Make Your Own Videoblog
- How to Be a Negotiation Ninja
- Closing Celebration
If you have a smartphone, I highly recommend downloading the Guidebook app for free. It’s super handy, and I’ve used it at several conventions.
Still need to get your pass(es)? Do it here. Don’t rely on being able to get in at the door. Last year GeekGirlCon sold out!
Last, but not least, remember to RSVP to our Facebook event so you can stay in the loop!
See you at booth 215!
