Corporate Sponsorship


Every fantasy ecosystem needs Good Creatures to help the Heroes in their quest to defeat the Big Bad Evil Guy/Gal. VCON sponsorship levels offer a means for the Good Creatures of the fan-community ecosystem (i.e., organizations with their finger on the pulse of fandom) to provide aid to the Heroes of the VCON organizing committee in defeating the dreaded Event Expenses Monster!

The support of all our generous sponsors, at every level, helps us to create the best event possible and your assistance, whether as small as the pinch of magic dust from a helpful Faerie or as powerful as the ancient artifact proffered by a wise Gold Dragon, will find you rewarded with valuable benefits.

If your organization is interested in becoming an official VCON sponsor please send email to sponsors [at] wcsfa [dot] org with the following information:

  • The name of the organization that you represent
  • Any particular product or service that you offer that you would like to highlight
  • The level of sponsorship you are interested in
  • The type of sponsorship you would like to provide (monetary or in-kind contributions, in what dollar amount)

We will respond with details of available sponsorship options and work towards a mutually beneficial agreement of exchange.

Individuals who would like to offer additional financial support to VCON should visit our Individual Donors page.
