Introducing Fan Meetups: Make a New Friend–or Fifty!

GeekGirlCon ‘16 can’t stop and won’t stop with the extra surprises and events for you, our favorite attendees. This time, we’re rolling out everyone’s favorite way to connect at a con: Fan Meetups!

For specific, glorious hours throughout the con, fans of different series, movies, books, and more can now easily meet other aficionados, hang out, and make some new friends. Fan meetups are con-organized events that are specifically organized to help you meet other people who are just like you. Go ahead and meetup!

    Ooh, is it too late to propose other fandom meetups? Undertale and Steven Universe would both be pretty great 🙂

      Oh, what wonderful ideas! Unfortunately, the official meetups are set. But maybe you could try to organize your own! Those can definitely be put on the list for next year.

    Next year a Whedon meetup would not go amiss.
