Advertise with Cecil Con

Thank you for your interest in advertising with Cecil Con 2018. You’ve made a great first step toward reaching our audience, which is ages 14-45 in the tri-state area of MD, DE, and PA.

This is Cecil Con’s fourth year running and we plan on having over 800 attendees this year. Our budget has always been modest, and we’ve made do with what we can do in the past, but this year we’d like to seek additional funding by offering print and web advertising to professional individuals, local businesses, groups, and organizations.

Collected funds will be used to improve upon the convention booklet and larger advertisement and visibility of the convention, which in turn, will gain you and/or your business more exposure. The better the advertisement the more attendees we will have, which will help grow the convention and widen our reach in the area.

Currently, and in the past, we have worked really hard to ensure the maximum exposure possible for our contributing Artists, Authors, Vendors, Panelists, and Workshop Instructors. We’ve achieved that by utilizing the tools available to us such as social media, our website, convention booklet, rack cards, postcards, and flyers. But we understand that not everyone has the time and/or ability to physically contribute to Cecil Con to gain that exposure. So this year we have opened up print and web advertising to everyone.

Level up!

We have several pricing options suited for different budgets, and advertisers can level up to become Sponsors at any time. Becoming a sponsor unlocks new abilities (such as gaining con tickets and other incentives). For more information, visit the sponsor page.
