Thanks to Everyone Who Came Out!

We had an amazing time this weekend at the first Nerd & Tie Expo, and we’re so glad you guys joined us! We want to thank each and every one of you who made our first convention such a success.

We fully plan on coming back next year, though we’re still hunting down a new venue for 2017 (with the pending demolition of the Plaza). We’ll let you know when we’re coming back in this space, so be ready!

The 2016 Nerd & Tie Expo Online Program Guide is Here!

The first ever Nerd & Tie Expo is coming up soon, and we’re happy to release our online program guide!

Our online guide is designed to look good on computers, tablets and smart phones, so no matter what device you have we guarantee you’ll have the most up to date schedule and information at your fingertips at all times.

(There will, of course, be paper guides too at the con — they’re just less exciting to talk about.)

You can access the online program guide right here, and we look forward to seeing you all in less than two weeks!

Volunteer for the Nerd & Tie Expo!

Did you know that if you’re willing to volunteer for the Nerd & Tie Expo, we’ll let you into the con for free? It’s true! If you’re willing to just give us ten hours of your time, you get into the event for nothing. I also have it on good authority that volunteering with make you taller, faster, stronger, possibly more attractive to the gender of your choice, and feed your very soul.

Of course, that last bit may just be a rumor.

All you have to do to volunteer is head on over to our Volunteer Page on the website, download the application, and email it to us. That’s it!

We look forward to hearing from you.
