ConnectiCon is a fan-run, membership based organization for fans of sequential art (web comics, anime, comic books, etc.), hobby games (tabletop miniatures, roleplaying, board games, etc.), electronic gaming (consoles, PC, arcade, etc.), science fiction, fantasy, horror and related genres. ConnectiCon's mission is to enable fans and creators, to bring a broader understanding of the industries and hobbies represented by the fans and professionals within our organization.
This year Connecticon's annual convention will occur from Friday July 9 through Sunday July 11, 2010 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.
To make attending the convention more affordable, ConnectiCon has reserved a room block at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, conveniently connected to the convention center, at a rate of $145/night for double or king-bed rooms, with a maximum of 4 occupants per room. The room block is limited and typically sells out quickly, if the room block sells out information regarding overflow hotels will be posted on the Connecticon website.
