Dragon Con 2104 kicked off with a bang this year. Tens of thousands of people have descended into downtown Atlanta for “the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction &fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe”.
According to Media Relations Director, Dan Carroll, it’s anticipated that 62,000 members will be in attendance this year. The convention now spans 5 hotels, 4 of which are 4 star hotels, utilizing all available conference and convention space available. Continuing with the change that was made last year, the vendor halls have moved to the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart. The convention is run by over 2,400 volunteers and offers over 3,000 hours of programming. This year over 400 guests were in attendance.
With the growth of the convention, the 40+ fan tracks, the events, the star-studded guest line-up, the workshops, art show, and so much more, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Scattered throughout every hotel are information booths. Take advantage of them, they will share a wealth of knowledge with you and point you in the correct direction.
