Con-G – Geeks@Home will be a free online convention running from February 19th, 2021 to February 21st, 2021 across our social media platforms, (facebook, youtube, twitter, twitch, instagram, discord). A weekend convention filled with standard convention stuff like a masquerade, panels, dealers room and other events….just online from the comfort of your home.
Con-G – Geeks@Home is an anime and geek culture convention. Some events will be live-streamed and put up to watch later, some will be prerecorded videos, some events will need attendee participation (that’s you!), but most importantly lets enjoy the weekend, relax and have fun together.
This question page will be updated as we receive inquiries from you so if you are confused about anything, feel free to contact us.
Q: Wait does this mean Con-G is back?
A: Con-G only exists as a virtual event. It will not be running any in person conventions because umm Covid!
Q: How does a Virtual Convention work?
A: Con-G has many social media platforms that will allow us to run events for everyone to enjoy and participate. Most events do not require signing up for anything.
