Airships officially registered with the Symposium each receive:

  • Their own custom discount code that saves their crew 10% off regular tickets
    (plus additional discounts)
  • A 2 foot by 2 foot vinyl banner of the ship’s logo
  • A box of 1,000 business cards to promote the group

Official Airship Registration has a one time fee of $35, and airships only need register once; after that the group is automatically listed each year as a contender in the Steampunk Olympiad*. To learn more, and register, please email

While any individual or unregistered airship may compete in any game or competition of the Steampunk Olympiad by making a donation at the NAMI table*, only officially registered airships may use their points toward winning the Steampunk Olympiad Trophy and four weekend badges to the 2019 Symposium.

We are aware that several airships are currently training hard for the 2018 Steampunk Olympiad, so this year’s competition already promises excitement and tension, but all with good sportsmanship!

* Please note that regardless of registered or unregistered, all contestants for the Steampunk Olympiad need sign up and make their $5 per game donation at the NAMI charity table.

** Recruitment is measured by the number of tickets purchased using the airship’s discount code.
