Welcome to the VCON Online Convention Floor!
We wanted VCON Online to give you all the opportunities you can get in the meat (real-life) version. The chance to see some people talk about Science Fiction, rub elbows with some famous people, play some games, pick up some gear, and last but foremost, have fun with your friends past and future.

VCON News! Are we or aren’t we??
Short Answer: Yes!
Are we or aren’t we running a live convention in October? I answer yes, because we are making every plan to have as many attendees as we are permitted at the time. We are also planning for the potential that we will still be locked down, or otherwise unable to host the event as we would like to see it. We are building a fully online event to run in parallel with the live event and feature all the guests and content that you would expect of a live event. Our Prime Minister has said that he expects to have half of Canadians vaccinated by the end of the summer. Dr Henry has said that we should expect to see vaccines at the end of 2021. We’re right in the middle of that grey area, so we have to plan for both options. The online event is something that was already planned, and it will become a permanent part of VCON from here on as it only benefits our attendees and VCON.
Will all the regular stuff be there? YES! we think… it is planned for all the normal things that VCON usually has will be there, Art Show, Dealer’s room, Panels, Workshops, Room Parties, Hospitality etc. We have the opportunity if ticket sales and conditions justify it, to spread out across THREE hotels! We are also looking at working with the Burnaby Public Library, Metropolis, Crystal Mall, Indigo etc leading up to the convention. We will also be featuring more technical panels on how to present your SF/Fantasy idea in forms other than written, like comics and graphics novels, or computer games, digital art, board games…. or MOVIES! Vancouver is one of the largest production centres in the world, and best known for our SF movie capability. Let’s talk to these people and get more ideas out there!
