Savcon Transformers Convention: an inclusive experience?

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on January 18, 2012 | Conventions |

Not everyone has attended a Transformers Convention, but they are becoming an essential part of the calendar for many Transformers fans. There is a big one happening in Savannah in Georgia in the United States later this year, called Savcon. It is taking place over the course of several summer days and will be held from the evening of Friday 22 June until a session at 5:00 pm on Sunday 24 June. The schedule is quite a busy one and there will be plenty of things to do for Transformers fans.

As with any Transformers convention, early registration is a must if you are to participate properly in the event. For example, there is a music show on the Friday night, which those who have not registered prior to May 1st will be excluded from. Attendance on the Friday night is probably the best way of getting to know other people before the con starts in earnest.

A diverse range of activities should make the Transformers convention one to remember for fans. Autograph sessions will permit fans to meet stars, get quotes and find out the insider stories on the many series. Charity events will permit fundraising for a good cause too, as is the case with most Transformers conventions. The art competitions sound fun, for those with a penchant for art (and a hankering to become comic artists themselves). There may be some fans who find the whole thing a bit expensive, but it seems that most of those lucky enough to go for the three days are in for a good time.

For UK fans, don’t forget we have our own convention here in Blighty in Birmingham. Find out more about Auto Assembly here.
