GeekGirlCon ’12 Welcomes You
Welcome to GeekGirlCon ’12! I’m blown away that we’re opening the doors on our second annual convention. I can’t believe it’s been less than a year since the first ever GeekGirlCon.
GeekGirlCon ’11 was a smashing success and sold out both days. Around 2,000 people came out each day to attend panels, workshops, a burlesque show, a Labyrinth sing-along, impromptu courtyard concerts, epic gaming sessions, fantastic geeky shopping, and artist/author signing sessions. Amazing.
Some awesome changes for GeekGirlCon ’12 – we’re in a bigger venue, The Conference Center, in downtown Seattle; we expect around 3,500 people per day; and there’s lots more programming, panels, workshops, and gaming (tabletop and console), as well as great performance events such as a nerdy comedy improv show, a geeky concert, and a fabulous evening masquerade.
Even with our phenomenal growth, we hold true to our mission statement of supporting and celebrating geeky women. We’re still created by geeky women for geeky women; still no “geek cred” required. Be you a Trek fanatic, an amazing LARPer, an FX artist, a scientist (mad or otherwise), a librarian, a hardcore gamer, a fanfic writer, a genre reader (or writer), or any kind of geek you want to be – you are welcome.
Enjoy GeekGirlCon ’12, and thank you for making this event awesome! See you again in 2013.
Live Long and Prosper,
