Activities
 
ConQuesT is a general Science Fiction Convention with several tracks of programming, a dealers room (including several book dealers), art show & auction, masquerade, filking, gaming, video programing, dances, autograph sessions and children's programming (not a baby sitting service). The primary focus of ConQuesT is Written SF and Fantasy. Although the Closing Ceremony is late Sunday afternoon, it will be followed by a mass BBQ run and Sunday evening will have a dance, dead dog party and other activities. Most attendees stay through Monday.

Benefit Auction
 
Once again, the ConQuesT benefit auction will raise money for a exciting project - the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. Over the years, the ConQuesT benefit auction has developed a reputation as one of the best and most interesting events in midwest fandom. Our scouts search the countryside for rare and unusual items-manuscripts, first editions, artwork in all media and just plain bizarre stuff. This is auction as performance art!
 
The 1999 Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at ConQuesT 30. The induction will take place at the Campbell Conference Awards Ceremony in July at the University of Kansas Alumni Center in Lawrence, Kansas. The 1996 inductees were A. E. van Vogt, Jack Williamson, John W. Campbell Jr. and Hugo Gernsback. The 1997 inductees were Andre Norton, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov and H. G. Wells.The 1998 inductees are Frederick Pohl, Hal Clement, C. L. Moore and Robert A. Heinlein.
