Geekonomicon is a family friendly sci-fi & fandom convention that will be held December 9-11, 2016 at the MS Coast Convention Center in Biloxi.  Last year was the convention's second year and there were approximately 2500 people who attended.  We are planning to make this year's convention even bigger and better than last year.  Our anticipated attendance this year is 3500 attendees!  We are a very proud supporter of "Cosplay is NOT Consent" and will not hesitate to remove anyone that violates our rules and policies.  We want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves in a fun and safe environment.  We also had an anti-bullying campaign hosted by the Louisiana Fur De Lis.

We will have a huge gaming area at Geekonomicon this year.  There will literally be something for everyone including: board games, play to win games, trading card games (like Pokémon, Magic: The Gathering, Dragon Ball Z, Yu Gi Oh, etc.), miniature games (such as Warhammer 40K, X-Wing, Blood Bowl, Hero Clix, etc.), role-playing games (like Pathfinder, D & D, Mekton Zeta, etc.), video games (Xbox, Xbox One, Wii, Wii-U, 3DS, PC, etc.), Social Deduction (Ultimate Werewolf, The Resistance, Coup, etc.), Cards Against Humanity (after 10:00 pm), LARP and much more.  We will have many gaming groups at Geekonomicon as well, including: Pathfinder Society, D&D Adventurer’s League, Gulf Coast Wargaming Alliance, SMG Wargamers, South Alabama War Gaming Group, Gulf Coast Pokémon Players, SOLAR Cerroneth, SOLAR Mississippi, Louisiana D20 Girls, Gulf Coast Board Gaming Group, and many more.

 

At Geekonomicon we have a dedicated kid's track with fun age appropriate activities for children of all ages.  We will have an educational track featuring many educational items, sports guest of honor, screening rooms where independent films will be shown throughout the weekend, and many panel rooms with tons of awesome topics to choose from.

 

There will be many fan groups sharing their interests with others, including: Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Steampunk, Diesel Punk, Furries, LARP, Gaming groups, Horror, Anime, Cosplay, Once Upon A Time, Buffy, Firefly, Homestuck and many more.  There will be many famous celebrities signing autographs and taking pictures with people, a charity auction to raise money for the USO, artists, authors, panel rooms, a cosplay contest and much more.

 

We have a large vendor room that we hope to keep packed with attendees throughout the weekend.  We will have many quality wares in our vendor room so that the thousands of attendees will not have to leave the convention without finding that special item that they have always wanted and needed, even if they didn't know that they needed it.  Our vendor spaces are available until the last space has been filled.  If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please feel free to contact us and we will send you a vendor packet.
