Heading out to a convention this weekend?

We’d love to see your photos (especially your cosplay photos). When you upload your convention photos to social media this weekend, tag @GeekDads on Twitter and GeekDad on Facebook–we just might share your photos on our social media accounts.

Are you a convention organizer who would like your con featured in an upcoming Convention Connection?

E-mail joey@geekdad.com at least two weeks before the convention’s start date with details you would like shared with our readers. Submission of details does not guarantee that we’ll highlight your convention, but it certainly helps your chances. If you are willing to participate in an online or phone interview promoting your convention, we can arrange an interview no later than one week prior to the convention start date. Audio interviews will be included in future Convention Connections.

Are you a convention organizer who would like your con attended and covered by GeekDad?

E-mail joey@geekdad.com at least two months before the convention’s start date with details. Submission of details does not guarantee that we’ll cover your convention, but it certainly helps your chances. Coverage depends on contributor availability for the convention. If you are willing to assist with travel and lodging for a GeekDad contributor covering your convention, please note that in the e-mail.

Are you a convention organizer who would like to give away entry to your convention (tickets, badges, etc.) on GeekDad?

Contact joey@geekdad.com at least one month before first date with ticket giveaway details. Submission of details does not guarantee that we’ll run a giveaway for entry to your convention, but it certainly helps your chances.

Final Thought

There is no way we can cover every convention every weekend. If there is a convention not covered above that you plan to attend this weekend, feel free to post the name of the convention, dates, location, and link to the convention’s website in the comments below.
