Vending at the Conference
Our attendees are looking for businesses, organizations and resources relevant to their needs. You can reach people from across the continent at the often sold out Gender Odyssey vendor fair. One vendor had this to say:
Our experience at Gender Odyssey has always been positive and profitable. While we sell books at many conferences and outside events, the Gender Odyssey conference is far and above the most successful. We find that the transgender community is an incredibly loyal customer base — dedicated to spending their money with businesses that respect them and their community. The Gender Odyssey conference has always been an event we’re proud to participate in. — Michael Wells, Bailey Coy Books
For inclusion in the program book, please check back for application submission dates for GO Los Angeles and GO Seattle. We will accept applications as space allows. We usually sell out all available spaces.
Advertising with Gender Odyssey
Conference Program Book
Placing an ad in the Gender Odyssey conference program book is a great way to reach a large audience of trans and gender non-conforming people, their friends, families, and a wide array of health providers. Attendees carry it with them throughout the conference, peruse it over the weekend, and take it home with them as a keepsake. Hundreds of people will see your ad — people who are specifically looking for resources, services, and organizations that are friendly to their needs.
We offer a variety of formats and prices to fit your budget. We encourage you to get your ad in early for best placement. For ad specifications and prices, see below. Please check back for advertisement due dates for the Gender Odyssey Los Angeles and Gender Odyssey Seattle books.
