Conventions and Fan Clubs in Australia and elsewhere

I cannot personally recommend all of the clubs and events listed here, but I have been to a fair number of them, and know people involved in most at some level. If you troll through my photos you'll quickly get an idea of where I've been and who I know. Many of the overseas events remain on my list of things to do when I win the lottery, or can otherwise afford to chuck my job in (which is difficult when you are self employed…).

Victorian Groups and Events

First Contact Conventions run a wide variety of events in Melbourne. These include standard conventions (talks, photos and autographs) covering all sci-fi genres, and events in conjunction with the Astor Cinema. I'm biased of course, but I think Scotty (who IS First Contact Conventions) runs the best events in the country!!

Oh, and if you live in Melbourne you really should check out the Astor Cinema. They have an amazing program of movies, old-faves, re-runs, new prints of restored movies and frequent double-headers catering for all age groups and movies tastes. Its got a huge screen with state of the art digital sound, and is one of the few cinemas capable of playing true 70mm prints - so the movies look even better. Check them out, download a calendar from the website or visit them to get a printed calendar.

Armageddon NZ is new Zealand event that runs mainly out of Auckland and Wellington a few times each year.

Creation Entertainment have the convention scene in the USA for most of the big franchises locked up. Depending on your pont of view, this makes them either a very cool place to be umpteen times a year, or a complete waste of time and money…

Collectormania and its related events throughout the United Kingdom are huge autograph events and trade shows. Their guest lists are unparalleled - and a must for the serious autograph hound.

The London Movie\Comics\Media Expo is another huge autograph events and trade show in the United Kingdom. Their guest lists are also pretty darn cool - and a must for the serious autograph hound.

Fan Expo - Toronto, Canada is a huge show along similar lines to Aramgeddon and Supanova - but imagine a show 4 times larger, in booth space, guests and crowds!!! Like many bigger North American shows, this attracts a lot of sponsorship from studios, comic companies. It also sports the biggest Artist Alley that I've ever seen with a huge variety of products and memorabelia being sold.

DragonCon is one of the granddaddy annual events in the USA. No matter what esoteric subject in sci-fi, fantasy, game play…etc you are into, you'll probably find several thousand other fans here who like it too. I was there in 2010 and its everything good people say it is, and more...

Comic Con is pretty much the biggest US trade show now for film and fan related things. The major studios now gear their publicity campaigns around these events. There are several shows run by these guys each year, but the really big one is in San Diego.

FedCon Europe is pretty much the biggest European Sci-fi convention. Check out their sister events in Europe for Lord of the Rings, and other fan stuff… (Note: Don't confuse them with FedCon USA).
