Yes, it's true, Shore Leave is still going strong after 36 successful years! We've had so much fun we are going to hold it for the 37th time this August!! If you weren't aware, Shore Leave is a yearly science fiction convention held by The Star Trek Association of Towson, Inc. (STAT). Our fan-run, all volunteer staff offer a wide range of activities during the convention covering everything from: an art show and auction, actor guests, a blood drive, science guests with science based tracks, a masquerade contest, panel discussions, writer guests, gaming and a wide variety of programming.
Shore Leave will be held at the newly renovated Wyndham Grand of Hunt Valley located in Hunt Valley, Maryland (just north of Baltimore). Table pricing is as follows: $225.00 per table in the Maryland Room and hallways and $175.00 for the Garden Room. The first table comes with two convention memberships and each additional table comes with one convention membership. With this Welcome letter you should receive a list of Dealers' Room Rules and a Dealer Registration form. These forms are a bit different than previous years, so please be sure to review these before submitting your information.
Shore Leave welcomes new and interesting Vendors to our Dealers' Rooms. We are specifically looking for those who have unusual, unique, and interesting wares that are beyond the norm of what can be found in the mundane world. If you are new to Shore Leave and are interested in attending, please send us an email with a description of what you are selling and pictures of your merchandise and/or your set-up at another event.
This year we are actively seeking vendors would might like to participate in a panel discussion or perhaps even a demonstration. The panels last about 55 minutes and we will cover your table for you if you'd like.
There are several methods for paying. Please see the Dealers Room Registration Form for complete information. After I receive notification from our registration team that your table(s) are paid for then I will then send you an email confirmation with further information.
Whether you attend or not, you can always advertise in our program book. Any Dealer interested in placing an ad in the Shore Leave Program Book please contact Joe Dorffner, our Program Book Ad Coordinator
