Why would you want to advertise with Albacon 2005?

  • You will be helping an organization that is active in promoting literacy in the Capital Region.
  • This is your opportunity to reach up to 750 people that may not be aware of your business or organization. Even more through the web site. Are your clients Science Fiction fans from the area? Apprise them of the advantages of doing business with you! Do you have hard to find inventory? Do you have events and/or specials coming up for Fall/Winter 2005?
  • You will be reaching a population that includes Professionals, Managers, Students, Teachers, Authors, Artists, Musicians, Parents, Retirees, and others over a variety of age groups. While most of our population is regional, it also includes an International representation.
  • Your donation may be tax deductible! You should check with your tax advisor for the benefits of donating to 501(c)(3) organizations.
  • Does your organization have an event coming up? Let people know about it. LASTSFA members and events cover many counties in and around the Capital Region. This includes counties like Albany, Saratoga, Montgomery, Fulton, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Schoharie, and more!
  • It's a great deal!!! For the money, the advertising that you get is amazing. By reserving your space by April 1st, you get advertising space in 2 mailings, the main program book, AND on the web site. Do you have fliers, promotional material, or other ad material you would like to display at the convention? Limited space would be available for that as well on a first come / first served basis. The Mailings offer coverage for about 1 cent per potential customer!!!
