Exhibitor Application for Chicago Steampunk Exposition 2023
Thank you for your interest in the 2023 Chicago Steampunk Exposition.
This is a vetted show. Applications are already being accepted and our first wave of reviews will occur in June 2022. The second wave of reviews will occur in August 2022. Late applications (after August 1st, 2022) will be placed on the Waiting List in order of submission and reviewed depending on any remaining spaces.
Acceptance notifications will be sent out in late June 2022 or late August 2022 depending on when we received your application; waiting list applications will be contacted if space is available.
Our choices for vendors will be made based on the following factors, in no particular order;
*How unique and well made your goods are. This means we need a valid website, Etsy, photographs or something similar in order to see your items.
*What you sell - This allows for the best sales opportunities for all vendors. In general, we will accept 2 vendors selling "like" goods.
*Our relationship with you, especially if we have worked with you before - Please understand that while we love, and are very grateful to vendors that have been with us are previous shows that does not mean you will be automatically accepted; variety from year to year to important to both vendors and attendees.
