    Costume-Con 26 Sponsorship and Advertising Opportunities

    Posted: January 24, 2008

    Costume-Con 26 is a completely volunteer-run conference* operating almost entirely on funds raised by membership fees, which we'd prefer to keep reasonably low.

    We're therefore offering a number of unique opportunities for businesses and individuals to help us balance the budget without escalating the fees any further. Besides advertisements in our publications, there are other sponsorships through which you can help us promote the art of costume at our conference!

    *Organized under the auspices of the UnConventional Foundation, Inc., a California non-profit corporation.

Is your organization devoted to history, dance, or wearable arts? Or do you run a San Francisco Bay Area gem that visitors should know about?
