GKE: NE Programming and Vending Applications are open!

GKE: New England is happening August 11-13, 2017 in Hartford, CT.

If you’d like to be a part of the event programming, or join us as a vendor – now is the time to apply!

Programming Application
This application is for presenters of all walks! We also welcome applications from performers such as burlesque troupes and sideshow/circus/fire performers, but please know that space for those is very limited. Please fill the application out as thoroughly as possible to best help us understand your needs, your skills, and what you are offering to the GKE:NE audience in our fourth year!

Acceptances and rejections will be made on a rolling basis, with a new crop of notifications at the end of each month. This application will close on June 15th, 2017 EST. Applicants replying after June 15 will be automatically waitlisted. All applicants will be responded to, be it acceptance, rejection, or request for more info, by midnight on July 1st, 2017 EST.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are applying to present, please DO NOT PURCHASE REGISTRATION AS AN ATTENDEE. We cannot guarantee refunds and it creates extra work and fees to switch registration types. If you are not selected for programming (or another department), you will have the opportunity to purchase your attendee registration after all notifications are out.


Vendor Application
We will be closing the application on April 15, 2017. Applications received after April 15 will be automatically waitlisted.
We will notify all applying vendors of their status by April 30, 2017–if we have accepted the application, wait listed the application, or declined the application. Wait listed vendors will be contacted in case of a vendor cancellation no later than August 1, 2017.

Vending fees begin at $265 and increase depending on space.
