Sponsorship Drive 2015

The Play On Con Sponsorship Drive is Here!

sessionsponsorWait… “Sponsorship Drive”? Weren’t you fundraising at this point in time last year?

Yes… Yes, we were. We had needs without the funds to make them happen. This year, we’ve budgeted the needs that worked and ditched the ones that didn’t. If you’ve bought a badge and a room, you’ve helped us raise the funds we need, so “fundraiser” didn’t seem appropriate. Now we’re looking for sponsors.

Why do you need sponsors?

Because we still have dreams we’d like to make a reality. We may have what we need, but there’s still a few things we want. With Voltaire bringing in new faces and our internet exposure on the rise, we’d like to ensure we’re set to impress in every aspect of our weekend. Sponsors can help us up the ante.

HYPE! MOAR HYPE! Doing a membership drive at the same time as our sponsorship drive builds enthusiasm, and enthusiasm means more people take a look at what we’re offering. We have some great sponsorship opportunities that deserve more eyes. So all aboard the hype train! WooWoo!!!

What are the sponsorship rewards?

Our rewards are designed to offer good incentives, especially if you are not attending the event.

For attendees: You may purchase memberships at the lowest price they will be offered before the show!

Welcome, POCsters!

Play On Con 10 was held July 6-9, 2017 at the Alabama 4-H Center.  Thank you for joining us!

Our 2018 dates and location are still TBA.  We will first take a few months to review our current year, as always.


Play On Con (POC) is a family-friendly four day fantasy and science fiction fandom convention held each year in Birmingham, Alabama--the Magic City!

We focus on four main areas for our attendees:

  1. Shows: Interactive and energetic programming that welcomes new fans as well as old.
  2. Gaming: The best board, RPG, live action, video, and card gaming available.
  3. Parties: Nightly (and daily!) hospitality events thrown by award-winning party hosts.
  4. Community: Active personal involvement with related fandom events throughout the year.
