A new and exciting Fantasy & Sci-Fi convention coming to Western Massachusetts! Join us August 15-17, 2014 for an amazing time!
This venture is looking to bring to Western Massachusetts an exciting new sci-fi and fantasy convention that is run by fans and for fans! There's a group of us working on this -- some with previous convention running experience, and some of us with just love and enthusiasm to share -- and we all have one goal: to create a successful and fun convention for geeks, gamers, nerds, and genre enthusiasts of all sorts to come together in fellowship and celebration of the things that they enjoy!
We've already got a hotel lined up, located in Northampton, Massachusetts. We've got guests booked, and are still looking at getting a few more. There will be vendors, panels, games, contests, and more! (To see what we've got lined up thus far, please check out our website!)
As a fan run venture, however, we are looking for assistance from you -- our fellow geeks, nerds, and enthusiasts -- in making this all happen. We've got a good start at things, but the more of a foundation we can build now, the better an end product our event will be for everyone!
So join us in building the first year of In-CON-Ceivable. Together, we can make our event's first year a tremendous success and put us on the road for further years to come.
With your support, we will be able to be sure to have all of the equipment and supplies we need, better take care of our attendees and our guests, and have the ability to better get the word out to the community about our event.
If we are able to surpass our goal, we may even be able to plan more elaborate things to happen at the convention, get better prizes for things such as our Cosplay Contest and Magic: The Gathering tournament, or perhaps even look at securing more guests! If it looks like this is a possibility of happening, we'll be back to update you with information about possible stretch goals!

Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges are simple. We're looking to build a strong foundation for our event, so that it can be a great success and continue on for years to come. A big part of that is keeping the cost down for our attendees. The less they have to spend at the door to get in, the more fun they can have at the event itself.
But this all means we need some capitol on the front end, so that we can rely less on recouping things on the back end, and keep our ticket prices low. And, if there is anything left on the back end, that will put us in a better position for year two and beyond!
No matter what, In-CON-Ceivable 2014 is happening. But how great a success it is, and if it leads to further In-CON-Ceivable events, depends greatly upon your support. Thank you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
