We couldn’t begin to dive into the changes for 2013 without recapping the successes of our past. Since opening our doors in 1987 as an outgrowth/evolvement of a local SF and Gaming group, we have proudly grown from 1,400 fans to over 52,000 last year. We are currently listed by the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau as the 6th largest convention in the City of Atlanta with the largest parade on Atlanta’s streets. We are proud to offer over 3,500 hours of non-stop programming, concerts, a film festival, the South’s largest costume contest, and the largest Art Show in all of fandom. Each year we review the highs and lows of the past and make changes to help support the show. We are happy to share with you some of the planned changes for the 2013 convention, which is sure to be the biggest and best yet thanks to our amazing fans and volunteers.
Since you are here, you have obviously found our first change for the 2013 convention. For your convenience and viewing pleasure, we have completely redesigned our website for our tech savvy and wonderfully imaginative fans. It is designed around three primary questions: Who to See? What to Do? Where to Go? After all, what else do you need to know when checking things out, showing off the convention, or preparing for the convention? You will also notice a much more visual feel of the site, with the goal of giving anyone who visits a mini “con experience” – allowing you to either reminisce about the great times from past conventions or check out all the cool things that are in store for you if you have not yet joined us for the best Labor Day party around. All the content from our old site is here, categorized into simplified groupings to help navigate through the site with ease. We hope you enjoy and check back often for updates!
