20 Weeks Until Symposium 2020

Posted on Posted in Symposium Update

In Twenty weeks time there will be a myriad of strange and wonderful sights at the 2020 Symposium, and many mysteries around each corner . . .

We have many themed presentations in addition to an array of Steampunk sessions, and the Steampunk Olympiad is going to be bigger than ever with the new Fleet Admirals!

To find out more about special guests, please visit our Featured Presenters list, and the Entertainment page.


This Week’s Presentation Preview

Between now and March we are building the schedule of presentations, and here is a preview of some of what to expect at the 2020 Steampunk Symposium:

A broader list of confirmed presentations, special events, entertainment, and more can be found on our Program Page.

Over the next few months we will be adding more previews of the presentations that will be at this year’s Symposium, but we are also still on the look out for more presenters. The Symposium needs charismatic presenters to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise in its panels, presentations, and workshops.
