Fandom conventions and events are celebrations of geek and popular culture. From local festivals of a few hundred people to gigantic international attractions of wonder (such as San Diego Comic-Con International, Dragon*Con, South x Southwest, E3), these fan gatherings exist to build community and promote the subject matter the fans enjoy.
Conventions I work with:

Established in 1999, MTAC has been steadily growing annual event based in Nashville, Tennessee. MTAC operates entirely on a volunteer basis.
