Art Show & Print Shop—Our Art Show includes a special exhibit of the works of our Official Artist Donato Giancola, plus about 90 panels and a dozen tables full of original SF and Fantasy artwork, most of which is available for sale by written bid at the con. For the second time at Boskone, we will allow previously-purchased art to be entered for resale. Also check out our Print Shop for many great items for immediate sale. The Art Show will be located on the second floor in the Back Bay Ballroom. For more details, please see our Art Show web page.

Hucksters' Room—The Hucksters' Room (aka the Dealers' Room) will feature a wide variety of science fiction, fantasy, and genre books, jewelry, clothing, and all manner of other fun stuff. We will be sending out mailing to Hucksters in October. The Hucksters' Room will be on the second floor in the Back Bay Ballroom, sharing space with the Art Show.

Con Suite—The Con Suite will be in the Commonwealth Room on the Program floor (third floor) in the center of the convention. Everyone is welcome to stop by for soda and munchies, to meet other fans (you might want to sign up for Birds of a Feather meetings with them!), or just to relax for awhile. Children may not be left unattended.

Gaming Room—This year's Game Room will feature lots of options for players of Magic: The Gathering, specialized board games, and people who want to play everything from checkers to Dungeons and Dragons. It will be in the Fairfax Room.

Information—Information will be at the open windows of the Meeting Planning Office across from the Constitution Ballroom on the second floor. Information is your place to find answers to your questions. You'll also be able to pre-register for a discussion group, a kaffeeklatsch, or other event that requires sign-up, to drop off items for the convention newsletter, and to get the latest copy of Helmuth. Stop by the Information office and see what we can do for you!
