Lobby Table Submissions
Norwescon offers lobby tables to clubs, groups, conventions, and organizations that promote science, science fiction, fantasy, costuming, and other fannish pursuits. This provides an opportunity to share your enthusiasm with Norwescon members who have similar interests. Fannish groups are the heart and soul of our geeky culture, so there is no charge for the tables. However, everyone staffing a fan table must have a current Norwescon membership badge. For more information on lobby tables, the guidelines, and a registration form, please visit the Lobby Tables page on our website.
