GenreCon is a convention.
GenreCon is a three day event that will be held on October 17 – 19, 2014 weekend, at the Delta Guelph Hotel and Conference Centre.
Just another convention? Really?
Of course there are other conventions out there, so what sets GenreCon apart?
The soul of GenreCon is a celebration of geek culture in Action, Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction. An idea that geeks can come together, anytime, anywhere, to enjoy and revel in what it means to truly be a fan.
I guess you could say our mandate is “Bringing fans together to be the best fans they can be!”
GenreCon will be bringing together our community, all of us like-minded individuals passionate about celebrating “what makes us geek?” Included in the party are invited guests… artists, actors, cosplayers, musicians, film producers, authors & writers… just about anybody in industry experts that we enjoy the what they contribute to geek culture. Add in some choice exhibitors and dealers, publishing houses and media companies, and the wheels that make the geek industry tick.
Every event has its focus, and GenreCon likes to highlight the four mediums of Literature, Film, Music, and Gaming. That’s why, when you buy your ticket for GenreCon, you’re paying for the experience of:
- workshops and panel discussions
- a cosplay competition
- a film festival
- media guests offering autographs, photo sessions and Q&As
- a dealers room filled with fun geek stuff
- video game competitions
- card and board game competitions
- book readings and signings
- room parties
- official elemental parties
- and more…
We want to celebrate what joins us all together… fandom. And we want our friends in the fan community, both old and new, to come share in their passions in geek culture.
