ConnectiCon XVIII has moved to September 9-12th 2021

ConnectiCon XVIII has moved to September 2021

We've been keeping a close eye on the pandemic and efforts to combat it for over a year now, and while we were looking forward to seeing you all in just 106 days or less in July, after some months of deliberation we've made the decision to see you all in 162 days or less to in September instead.

We've made this decision because we want all of our attendees, vendors, guests and event staff to be as safe as possible when attending the event, and we feel that the extra two months will give everyone a chance to get FULLY VACCINATED (you know the requisite 14 days after your final dose of a vaccine for COVID19).

September 9, 2021 is now less than 162 days away, when we will open the doors at the Connecticut Convention Center for badge pick-up, the Marriott Hartford Downtown will be hosting Thursday panels, and tabletop gaming, we're coordinating with Convivial Fest for some planned off-site events begin for ConnectiCon XVIII - September 9-12, 2021.
