21 Weeks until Symposium 2019

Posted on Posted in Symposium Update

There are 21 WEEKS until the Symposium . . . so what’s new?

The 2019 schedule is coming together nicely with many exciting new presentations, some familiar introductory presentations for those new to Steampunk or needing a refresher, and several that relate to the theme of “Steamtastic Beasts.”

There will certainly be a lot to do at Symposium 2019, and our most frequent complaint is that there is too much on the schedule which then causes people the anxiety of having to choose between presentations that are going on at the same time. In response to this feedback we started something new with the 2017 Symposium which has been working out well since then; our featured speaker presentations, our core standard presentations, and other popular presentations are actually repeated throughout the weekend with two or three opportunities to attend. In addition to this we have many one off presentations, but with the repeated sessions it makes it easier to do both.

We are always looking for new ways to improve the Symposium and feedback from our attendees has always been valued, which is why every year (starting with the first Symposium in 2012) we hold a Symposium Feed Back session on the Sunday morning of the convention for you to meet with the show runners and share what you enjoyed and what you would like to see improved. While we can’t grant every request, we certainly take that information into consideration when planning the next year’s Symposium 🙂


This week we continue to reveal some more of the programming that you can expect this March.

We shall continue to add more and more to the list as the weeks countdown to Symposium 2019.

Even though the initial review deadline has passed, we are still accepting proposals for panels, presentations, and workshops. Find our online application HERE if you are interested in presenting a session at the Symposium.
