ConnectiCon is a fan-run, membership based organization for fans of sequential art (web comics, anime, comic books, graphic novels, manga, cartoons, etc.), hobby games (tabletop miniatures, roleplaying, board games, card games, live action roleplaying games, paintball, airsoft, etc.), electronic gaming (consoles, PC, arcade, pinball, etc.), science fiction, fantasy, horror and related genres. ConnectiCon's mission is to enable fans and creators, and to bring a broader understanding of the industries and hobbies represented by the fans and professionals within our organization.
To attend ConnectiCon, you must become a member of our organization. Without our members and the annual dues they pay in support of the organization, ConnectiCon would be unable to run our year-round member's events (Membership Appreciation Days, AKA "MAD", private movie screenings, and other outings) and its annual membership conference hosted each summer at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. Annual memberships range in price based upon when you register to attend the convention, how many days you register to attend, and your age. Our annual membership year begins on October 1st and ends on September 30th. The earlier you become a member, the longer you get to enjoy membership benefits. Not to mention you'll save money, and you'll be able to skip the long registration line!
Aside from attending the convention, registered members receive many benefits. The membership benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Regular ConnectiCon newsletters, keeping you informed about what we're doing each month.
- Opportunity to attend our annual Members' Convention, ConnectiCon, for the day(s) you are registered.
- Opportunity to participate in our quarterly Member Appreciation Day(s) for the current membership year. For more information on Member Appreciation Days check our forums and Calendar!
- Save 20% on merchandise purchased at the ConnectiCon Tournament Center located in Newington, CT - and also when you see us on the road promoting and selling at other conventions throughout the year.
