Coffee Talk Going to Hartford's Comic Conference

We can meet around 1:30, giving us time to log in and register for the event.  I have trouble logging into their computers so it might take me a while.  Go up the stairs from the logging in area.  The next landing has a snack bar.  We can meet by the  snack bar.  I have never checked it out but I have seen it as I went to the third level from the log in floor to see more activities.

I will send you more information to those who RSVPed Yes around Wednesday or Thursday.

 

Overview

ConnectiCon is a membership-based organization, run by a very dedicated volunteer staff. ConnectiCon is New England's ONLY massively, multi-genre pop culture convention, the convention's focus is on all things pop culture and does every genre of pop culture in as big a way as possible. The event attracts over 10,000 people to the Hartford area annually, and plans to expand to other venues in downtown Hartford. ConnectiCon was the proud recipient of the Bring It Home Award from the Greater Hartford Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

In addition to hosting the annual members' convention held in Hartford each summer, ConnectiCon also offers MONTHLY member appreciation events at their headquarters in Newington, CT. These monthly events are held on the 2nd Saturday each month from 10am - 10pm and feature console gaming, screenings, tabletop role playing games, board gaming, Magic: the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh and other convention related events. It is a great venue for members and fans to get together on a more regular basis, and in a more intimate setting than a large convention.

Over 8,000 people attended ConnectiCon in 2011, 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, role playing games,

live action role playing, collectible card games, and horror.

ConnectiCon has "Everything but the kitchen sink!

You can wear a costume if you want to but you do not have to

wear a costume.    I will not be in costume.

I will contact those who RSVP Yes and go into more detail where

We can meet.  It is a very large area.

There are tables when you first enter where you have to log into a computer

before you get your Badge that you have to wear / carry to

go to come of the events.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
