Convention Survival Guide


Conventions are great! The buzz, the stalls, the celebs, the cosplay, the crowds...

They can also be bloody hard work!

We know, we've been there. Whether you're looking for a UK Gaming Convention or something more leftfield, we're working our way through conventions of all kinds to arm you with all the info needed to have the best comic con, gaming con, horror con, any kind of con, ever!

From small UK gaming conventions to the big boys like MCM Comic Con, San Diego Comic Con, PAX, DragonCon, Coaching for Geeks wants to do them all!
