Sci-fi/fantasy film, television and young adult book convention returns to Orlando July 30-Aug. 2


NEW YORK, March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Thousands of self-proclaimed “geeks” will descend upon Orlando this summer to celebrate their individuality and obsession with everything nerdy at the seventh annual GeekyCon, one of the largest and most recognized conventions for fans of fantasy films, television shows and young adult books. GeekyCon will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida July 30-Aug. 2. Tickets are on sale now at www.GeekyCon.com.

The event will give attendees an opportunity to meet celebrities from their favorite movies and television shows and authors of bestselling books, as well as offering four full days of programming, including special events, panel discussions, Q&A sessions, workshops, live performances, music concerts and a marketplace. Unlike other fandom events, attendees do not have to pay for autographs or photos from celebrities participating in the event.

Special guests at previous events have included actors, writers and other creative talent from movies and television shows such as the Harry Potter films, “Supernatural,” “Game of Thrones,” “Doctor Who,” “The Hobbit,” “The Huger Games,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries,” “Glee” and many more films and television shows as well as authors of some of the top young adult books.

“GeekyCon is a celebration of fandom, and we go out of our way to make it as much about the experience of coming together with others who have similar interests as we do about compelling programming, exciting events and popular celebrities,” said Melissa Anelli, co-executive director of Mischief Management, which operates the event. “This is about being in a positive environment where attendees can enjoy themselves and each other and be inspired in the process.”

GeekyCon is one of the largest and most recognized annual fandom conventions in the world and is attended every year by thousands of fantasy film and television fans as well as book enthusiasts. The event was started in 2009 as LeakyCon, a conference for Harry Potter fans and has since grown to include fans of some of the most popular films and television shows such as “Doctor Who,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Hunger Games,” “Supernatural,” “The Hobbit,” and many others. The event also offers fans a literary track that draws some of the biggest authors in the young adult genre, as well as programming with personalities from YouTube and top Web shows. Past events have been held in Boston, Orlando, Chicago, Portland and London. More information is available at www.GeekyCon.com.
