Groot. Ant Man. A Tribble. As fans of sci-fi and fantasy we all know that small can be powerful. When it comes to cons, we believe that small is absolutely for the best.
Why is smaller better? Let’s start with the most obvious reason: the lines are shorter. Anyone who has spent an entire night in the rain just to get an obstructed glimpse of a star-studded panel knows that the Big Con experience often isn’t worth the wait. Even the bathroom can become an “I-Hope-I-Can-Get-In” event.
At a smaller con you spend less time in line and more time seeing and doing. Which brings us to the second reason. At a smaller con you’ll see more of the type of stuff that you want to see. Big Cons are often burdened with serving a Hollywood agenda. A smaller con is free to seek out more interesting exhibitors and speakers. We are fans ourselves, and we’re inviting experts that we really want to hear from and get to know better.
Smaller also means more intimate. You have a better chance to interact with the speakers, exhibitors, and your fellow attendees more personally. Something we will encourage with our social lounges, contests, competitions, and parties. Think of it as a con where you come for the content and leave with a few new super friends.
If you do come to InterGalactiCon you’ll also discover some thoughtful little touches we’re adding to make your time with us more rewarding. We don’t want to spoil any surprises, but suffice it to say that we’ve got your back in ways a bigger con never would.
Want to really know why a smaller con is better? Come experience it for yourself. We promise that if you join us this year you’ll want to come back next year.
