Fandom Forum was created to provide an opportunity for fandom focused event organizers and industry partners to meet, network, and learn from one another, discover and innovate on best practices, and spread resources and connections to improve the industry as a whole and create opportunities for all events, big and small. This event coincides with the start of Dragon Con 2019, which will function as the backdrop to this first-ever Fandom Forum. Fandom focused events share similar sets of issues and opportunities, different in nature and scope from traditional conventions and trade shows, and as the industry evolves Fandom Forum is the premier place to share knowledge and learnings.
A fandom event is roughly defined as a publicly accessible gathering of people with a passion for specific elements of popular culture. This definition would cover the range between general comic cons and niche interest events. All events big and small in this space share a similar set of problems and have a unique set of industry-wide issues.
