ConnectiCon is a member-based, pop-culture fan convention. It is organized by a dedicated volunteer staff of fans, for other fans. ConnectiCon's attendance has grown more than 10x the amount since it's first convention held at the University of Hartford in 2003. It was most recently attended by over 12,000 fans of pop-culture, the majority of which are from the North Eastern United States, but hail from around the globe. Member ratios are nearly even between male and female, and the majority of participants are between the ages of 13 and 32.
