Major Events

Community Experience Exchange

Come meet our groups of experienced conrunners covering all different areas and ask them your specific questions! Share your knowledge! Get to know other members of the convention in an informal and social setting. This event and the Poster Session are in the same large function space without a divider for the evening. They are complementary events intended to happen at the same time.

Friday 8:30pm - 10:30pm

Poster Session

An opportunity for seated conventions, and fan-run nonprofit conventions within about 450 miles of Albuquerque, and bids for Worldcons, NASFiCs, Westercons, and SMOFCons to share information about themselves to the members of SMOFCon 37 and anyone else who happens by. 

For those unfamiliar with the kind of posters needed for a poster session, we have created a sample based on Bubonicon 52.

Groups wishing to participate in the Poster Session should contact us at before November 15, 2019.

Friday 8:30pm - 10:30pm

Fannish Inquisition or Question Time

On Saturday evening, we will hold our traditional time for bids for future SMOFCon, Worldcons and NASFiCs.  This is our usual highlight event, and will mostly be run as it has been in the recent past with written questions through our able moderators.

Groups wishing to present at the Fannish Inquisition will be required to have a representitive at the participants meeting earlier on Saturday, so be sure to check the final schedule.  If you have any questions about this or anything else, email us at

Saturday 8:30pm - 11:00pm
