FIRST WAVE OF VENDOR INTEREST FORMS DUE SEPTEMBER 15
CONsole Room is pleased to present both a Dealers Room and Artist Alley. For consideration in either room, please fill out your vendor interest form no later than September 15.
Learn more about our vending spaces on our Artist Alley and Dealers Room page.
HOTEL ROOM BLOCK IS OPEN!
CONsole Room returns to the HILTON MSP AIRPORT/MALL OF AMERICA HOTEL and our room block is currently open!
Staying at the hotel is a great way to help the convention, but also gives you a home base for the weekend, a place to watch virtual panels, and easy access to local amenities
Staying at the convention hotel puts you within arm’s reach (so to speak) of everything the convention has to offer, cozy and relaxing hotel amenities, and more.
Early morning? You’re already at the con.
Late night of dancing or conversation? You’re within steps of a place to sleep.
Don’t want to deal with possible snow? You can hang out with Whovians all weekend long without ever having to step outside – and have easy access to mass or shared transit if you do.
Our room block is open until a couple weeks before the convention or until full, whichever comes first. Book your home away from now!
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: JOIN OUR CONVENTION COMMITTEE
Did you know CONsole Room Events is a Minnesota-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization? We are truly an event created by the fans for the fans – and we’re looking for additional volunteers to join our team! Whether you’re new to volunteering or a convention veteran, we’d love to hear from you.
Some of the roles that are currently open can be found below:
- Art Show Team Members: Partner with the Art Show Lead to assist with running the Art Show experience, including pre-event set-up, at-con set-up and take-down, and sales during the convention.

We’ll be sharing all kinds of updates, announcements, and Whovian fun over the coming months while we ramp up to our 11th annual convention.
