Geek Convention Roundup
I’m taking a trip to Cancun this week – so my blogging will be (and already is becoming) a little spotty. Here’s a quick entry, though, regarding all the geek goodness that has been going on.
- Florida Supercon is less than three weeks away. It’s is absolutely astounding to see how quickly this show has grown to the size it is in just a few short years. Just look at the guest list: http://www.supercon.tv/news/284-new-guest-additions-a-full-guest-list
- Botcon is the weekend after that (23 days away.) They still don’t have any of their events listed.
- Ancient City Con is just a couple of weeks after that in July. The team from ACC will also be coming down to South Florida to host gaming events at Florida Supercon. Very cool. Also, Rekha Sharma from Battlestar Galactica is a guest at Ancient City Con this year. Very, very cool.
- Gen Con is up after that – the first weekend in August. This will be my first time setting foot in Indianapolis, Indiana – and my first time at such a gamer-centric event. Luckily, I have Joey Snackpants as a tour guide.
- Star Wars Celebration is the weekend after that. Fun fact: I’ve already met George Lucas in person – so I’m on the fence as to whether or not to attend this event.
- Dragon*Con brings us to September… and we got our reservations for this a while ago. Zaniness (typically) ensues.
- Anime Weekend Atlanta is right after Dragon*Con, so things will be busy that month. Not sure what we’re doing for that yet – but odds are it’ll be interesting.
As for the rest of 2010… nothing in stone (yet.) There are rumors of something horror related in October. Stay tuned.
After that – InvaderCON is going full steam. I’ve been amazed at the response for this “little show that could.” This will post on the official site later this week, but we’ve already sold tickets for InvaderCON 2011 in the following locations:
- New York
- Nova Scotia (Canada!)
- Washington, DC
The best part? We haven’t even started any heavy advertising… yet. Thus the power of the Interwebz.

- So I got some fan mail (sarcasm) from @Botcon in my inbox! Check it out:
- Oh @BotCon. You never fail to amuse. (#BotFAIL Phones It In Another Year.)
