2020 Vendor Room
2020 Vendor Room

Please read this information carefully before registering and purchasing your tables.

Contact Carleen Spry at carleen.spry@goldencrown.org with questions or for assistance.

We welcome all vendors, organizations, and individuals whose mission is related to lesbian-themed literature, lesbian life, or are a friend to lesbians and the LGBTQ community.

THE VENDOR ROOM

The Vendor Room is the nucleus of the GCLS Conference. It houses all our Vendors and organizations as well as round tables for attendees to eat lunch and socialize, thereby creating a friendly atmosphere. The official bookseller, GCLS Silent Auction and our general Information Table are also located there. As a result, we expect to have significant foot traffic into the Vendor Room this year.

We are expecting approximately 350 attendees this year. If your products or books capture the interest of lesbians, their families and/or friends - then this is your dedicated audience.

We look forward to having you as part of the heart of our conference!
