Should you be sponsoring Colorado’s longest running and best science fiction, fantasy, and horror literary convention? Does your business rely on science fiction, fantasy, and horror book sales, publishing, games or merchandise? If the answer is yes to any of these, then we have a sponsorship program that your organization should be interested in. This program will expose the name of your company to thousands of individuals interested in speculative literature, publishing, games and merchandise.

MileHiCon is Colorado’s longest running literary science fiction, fantasy, and horror convention with the goal of promoting speculative literature, publishing and education to the public. MileHiCon is a Colorado Not-For-Profit organization run by an all-volunteer committee and staff. No one on the committee or staff is paid a salary of any sort. The committee and staff are committed to the organization’s mission.

MileHiCon has occurred once a year for the past 54 years. 2022 will be the 54th year for this event. Over the three day event approximately 1500 people pass through the hotel doors and one of our goals is to increase this number dramatically. Your sponsorship can help with this goal and by sponsoring MileHiCon your company name will be placed in front of each attendee and contactee. This year the convention takes place on October 21, 22, and 23, 2022 at the Marriott Hotel – Tech Center, Denver, CO.

The activities at MileHiCon include: the largest science fiction/fantasy art show and auction in the rocky mountain area; the Literacy Auction (more about that below); over 200 panel discussions, presentations and demonstrations presented by over 100 authors and artists at the convention, and the legendary Critter Crunch (robotic sumo wrestling). Also, happening at the convention is a Vendors room, CosPlay, music concerts, hospitality suite, and gaming. Needless to say a lot goes on at MileHiCon.
