|GenreCon is a convention celebrating the quadrumvirate of geek culture, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Action. It is a three day long event happening November 16 - 18 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Conference Centre in Guelph ON.|
There are other conventions out there, we admit it. So what sets GenreCon apart?
GenreCon will be combining the best parts of both fan-run conventions and trade show/expo. A fan-run convention is an event that brings together a community of like-minded individuals to celebrate their passions for geek culture, while a trade show brings in industry experts, choice exhibitors and dealers, publishing houses and media companies.
In keeping with the quadrumvirate of genres, the convention will also be highlighting four mediums in which those stories are told, Literature, Film, Music and Gaming.
You can expect GenreCon to provide for its ticket holders:
•workshops and panel discussions
•a cosplay competition
•a film festival
•media guests offering autographs, photo sessions and Q&As
•a dealers room filled with merchandise
•video game competitions
•a living universe roleplaying campaign
•card and board game competitions
•book readings and signings
•official elemental parties
We want people to celebrate and bask in their geekdom. The aim of GenreCon is to provide a place to meet fellow geeks, share their ideas, their LOVE of their favourite genre.
