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,
Erica McGillivray
GeekGirlCon President

    Thank you!! We are still basking in the glow of the awesomeness of GeekGirlCon 2012! We’ve been going to Emerald City ComicCon for years, but we’ve never had as much fun as we did at GeekGirl Con. We got to actually talk to venders, attend panels interesting to us, and enter the gaming area without feeling intimidated that we’re not hardcore gamers. Plus the mask making was a super fun activity for me to do with my younger daughter while my husband and older daughter played the new fluxx game they bought. I just wish GeekGirlCon had been around when I was growing up a girl geek in the 70’s and 80’s. Oh well, I am thrilled you are here now for my two geek girls! We can’t wait for GeekGirlCon 2013!
