  • Planet Con Rep Said:
I first became interested in Anime and Comic conventions when I attended my first convention this year Comic Con.

  • Planet Con Rep Said:
This is were I need your help to create a spectacular convention in the City of Aurora.

Why are you trying to start a new convention there? The Denver area has THREE new cons in the last couple years. Why not join an existing con and make that better? At the very least, you'd get valuable staffing experience before trying it on your own. You'd also meet a lot of other people who you might be able to recruit if you still wanted to start one later.

Starting a con after just attending one and with no convention staffing experience seems like a really, REALLY bad idea. I can assure you that running a fan convention is FAR different than managing weddings, concerts, or comedy shows.

If this is an attempt to get rich off of running a fan convention, boy are you in for a rude awakening...
