Imagicon: what makes us Different?

Imagicon is not a fair. Imagicon is not an expo. Imagicon isn’t an even with Big Stars. Imagicon is a convention. Imagicon is a meeting place for all fans of SF, Fantasy, Horror and Comics. At Imagicon there are a lot of activities that cater to the tastes of each fan. Enjoy our fan film program, listen to stories, place a bid in our charity auction, participate in the Galaxy Masquerade (our cosplay contest) or our Imagicon Fan Film Awards, get to know your favorite authors and illustrators, try out board and console games, buy your favorite items and meet a lot of other fans! The program at Imagicon, put together by fans for fans, is by far the most important part of our convention. Fans are at the heart of our event and we offer a varied program in which everyone will be able to find something to his or her liking. In our program we offer different program lines and invite our visitors to think about and discuss various topics. Of course it’s also possible to simply take a seat in the audience and enjoy everything there is to see and hear, but if you want, you can keep yourself busy the entire day with everything and anything. If you want more than ‘just’ an active day, you can help by suggesting panel topics, organizing a workshop, submit a fan film for the film program, participate in one our contests, take a seat in one of our panels as a panelist, or give a lecture about your favorite character, show, movie, book, comic or something else. And when you’re curious as to how a convention is put together behind the scene you can sign up as a volunteer.Nothing’s mandatory, anything goes! Additionally Imagicon also has a very beautiful and spacious exhibition floor where associations, fans and commercial shops will be selling their wares. Do you create your own fan-made stuff or are you a member of an association that fits the target group of Imagicon? Then you’re more than welcome to join the exhibition floor by hiring a stand. What’s the difference with all the other events that you might know or have heard about? Trade shows, expos and fairs are events where buying (fan-)articles is the main activity. Such events often consist of a large exhibition floor with some activities, like having your picture taking with a celebrity or getting someone’s autograph. Sometimes the celebrities hold a lecture or a Q&A- session. At the fairs you can buy stuff, hang out and listen to music, lectures or even follow a workshop. Sociability is top priority. At fairs, expos and fairs the focus is on selling stuff. That’s not our convention’s main focus, though. Imagicon is a nonprofit organization that relies on volunteers to help our during the convention. In turn we raise funds for the Reading and Writing Foundation by organizing various activites during Imagicon. Fans can contribute their own articles to be sold at the charity auction. Every single penny that’s raised in this way will go to the Reading and Writing Foundation. Above all Imagicon is a day organized by fans, for fans, of which we hope everyone will say, at the end of the day: “This was great! Let’s do it again next year!”
