It should be a blast, and tick­ets are still on sale. Details from their Press Release are below:

ANNOUNCING FLORIDA’S FIRST STEAMPUNK CONVENTION

The first of a three – part con­ven­tion series is sched­uled at Day­tona Beach

The Flori­da Steam­punk Soci­ety will spon­sor and host Florida’s first all-­Steam­punk con­ven­tion April 1315, 2012 in Day­tona Beach.

Steam­punk is a sub-­?genre of sci­ence fic­tion based on a Vic­to­ri­an vision of a future run by steam pow­er and clock­work, where fan­tas­ti­cal machines inspired by the likes of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells are com­mon­place. The lit­er­a­ture has inspired an entire sub­cul­ture and fash­ion, as well as an emerg­ing musi­cal scene.

Flori­da Steam­punk Exhi­bi­tion East will be a gath­er­ing of world-­?class and internationally-­?recognized artists, includ­ing the quin­tes­sen­tial Steam­punk band, Abney Park, the rau­cous and infec­tious sing-­?along stylings of the Bawdy Boys, and the unbri­dled ener­gy of the one-­?of-­?a-­?kind per­for­mance artist, Perego LIVE!

Aside from per­for­mances, exhi­bi­tion atten­dees will be invit­ed to shop at the Merchant’s Grand Bizarre for Steam­punk crafts, gear and more, attend break­out work­shops on DIY gear, hear keynote speak­ers and authors, and enjoy the musi­cians, magi­cians, and mis­chief mak­ers who will be wan­der­ing the hall­ways.

Oth­er high­lights include demon­stra­tions by Air­ship Isabel­la, read­ings at the High Tea host­ed by highly-­?acclaimed author O.M. Grey, the time-­?traveling Steam­punk musi­cal mus­ings by Flori­da band, The Cog is Dead, and per­for­mances by Cup­cake Bur­lesque.

Tick­et and hotel infor­ma­tion can be found at the exhibition’s Eventbrite web­site or
con­tact the Direc­tor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Dayli­na Miller, by the email or cell num­ber list­ed above.
