You can find online conventions and traditional get-out-the-flat-and-travel conventions in this calendar. Like a convention added? Spot any mistakes? Get in touch.
Geek Native’s convention calendar started in 2020 as pandemic restrictions forced events to cancel, propose or go online while also triggering a pleasant growth of virtual conventions.
RPG conventions were the only focus at the start, but that grew to include comic con events, anime, sci-fi, fantasy, specific franchises (like Star Wars or Doctor Who conventions) and then geeky tech.
It’s free to be listed on the calendar, and if you know of an event that you think might interest Geek Native’s audience of friendly gaming nerds, please suggest it.
Maintaining the convention calendar
The phrase “every effort” is misused. Plenty of effort is invested in keeping this calendar up to date, cancelled events removed and rescheduled conventions moved.
Please help by filing a report if you see a mistake.
There is no desire to promote events that give a platform to hate speech. If you’re aware of an RPG convention, or another event type, with a poor reputation for such offences that have made it to the calendar, please let me know.
Some of these conventions are huge! You can see a visual representation of scale and category in this related project.
