Connecticut Convention Center and Hartford Marriott Downtown
Over 7,000 people attended ConnectiCon in 2009, making it one of New England’s largest pop culture events. Why pop culture you ask? Well, because ConnectiCon doesn’t focus on just one element of fandom, the convention’s organizers are fans of a lot of different things, so we focus on all of the awesome stuff that we like including: web comics, anime, console games, board games, table top miniatures, science fiction, fantasy, comics books, roleplaying games, live action roleplaying, collectible card games, and horror. You name it we’ve probably got something related going on, even Madden Football, and spontaneous games of Twister while folks wait in line! ConnectiCon has “Everything but the kitchen sink!”
What can you expect to see and do at ConnectiCon? Here is a short list of what we’ve currently got planned for you:
* Three 24-hour screening rooms showing new releases, classic favorites and independent features from anime, sci-fi, fantasy, horror and related genres.
* Five panel rooms, three workshop rooms, a 2,500 seat main events hall. Packed with performances, guest speakers, hands on crafting, and discussion of your favorite genres.
* There will be nine 4-hour slots of roleplaying games showcasing mainstream and independent games for experienced players or beginners.
* Thanks to our sponsor, GameStop, Console gaming is going to explode featuring over 100 systems for free play and tournament use.
