Become a Sponsor For No Brand Con 2020!

Did you know there’s a great way to help support No Brand Con while getting some pretty amazing perks for yourself? It’s true — with our limited “Sponsor” registration tier you can get the most out of the convention while helping us make sure the con can be as amazing as possible.

Sponsorships start at just $85, and with that package you get some pretty great stuff – including:

  • Your name printed in the program guide
  • This year’s T-Shirt and a grab bag of goodies
  • Priority seating at guest panels and the cosplay contest
  • Early access to the vendor room
  • Access to a sponsors only meet-and-greet panel

We limit each year to only twenty-five sponsor badges, but all you have to do to purchase one for yourself is to go to our registration page and select the sponsor tier. If you’ve already preregistered and would like to upgrade your badge, contact our registration team at sales@nobrandcon.org to make the upgrade.

Get your badge today, and have your best con possible!

Panel Applications For No Brand Con 2020 Are Now Open!

Panels are always a big part of any No Brand Con experience. Whether you want to plunge into in-depth analysis of your favorite series, hear bizarre industry stories you’d never expect, or just want some cosplay tips, it’s the a great way to spend your time. Many of our panels are actually provided by our attendees just like you too.

Fan run panels often provide the highlights of the convention, and we couldn’t do this without them. We also consider time hosting a panel as “double Volunteer hours,” which means hosting an hour long panel counts as two hours of volunteer time.

If you’re interested in submitting a panel for No Brand Con 2020, you can head on over to our Panels page. There you’ll find the rules along with our online submission form.

We’re excited to find out what you want to do!

Interested in Joining No Brand Con Staff? Come to Our Open Meeting This Week!

No Brand Con is a completely volunteer run event, and we’re always looking for more people to join the team. Conventions like ours don’t happen without ordinary people like you (and me) pitching in, and if you’ve ever wanted to staff a convention now’s a great time to start.

This week on Thursday, September 19th, No Brand Con is having an open staff meeting for new members in Eau Claire, WI. It starts at 8:00pm in the Menomonee room of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s Davies Center.

Joining staff has plenty of perks, and is frankly a ton of fun. Consider stopping by and becoming one of the No Brand Heroes!

(Regular meetings continue at 8pm on Thursday nights at other locations – if you can’t make this meeting and would like to join staff please email us for more information)

Artist and Vendor Registration for No Brand Con 2020 is Open!

The No Brand Con’s Vendor Room and Artist Alley are both now accepting applications for our 2020 convention! If you’re an artist or a vendor, this is the place to show off your talent and/or wares.

Pricing and policies for both of these areas can be found on our Vendors & Artists page, along with links to the applications. We want to provide a diverse, well rounded shopping experience for the attendees, so please don’t be shy in submitting an application.

As these are juried processes, Both Vendor Room and Artist Alley registration will be open until December 1st. After that our team will go through the applications, with confirmations following in the weeks after.

Thank You For an Amazing No Brand Con 2019!

No Brand Con wrapped for its 18th year last night, and we think it was one of the best ones yet. We’re so grateful for every single one of you guys who came out this year, both long time attendees and newcomers alike. You’re the best, and you’re the ones we do this for.

We always want to know what you think too — so with that in mind, we’re putting out our annual attendee survey to find out what you think. We want to know what you liked along with how we can improve the con for next year. We’re always looking for opportunities to improve.

We had a great time seeing all of you these last few days, and we can’t wait until we get to do so again next year.
