Our company is GottaCon Conventions and we host an annual hobby based gaming event called GottaCon. After a third successful year, GottaCon 2012 is set to take place on February 3rd to 5th, 2012 at the Pearkes Recreation centre in Victoria, BC. The 2011 show saw an increase in attendance which exceeded 1,100 attendees and attendance for the 2012 show is expected to continue to grow.
GottaCon is a three-day broad spectrum gaming convention that is held annually on the first weekend in February in Victoria, British Columbia. GottaCon celebrates the science fiction and fantasy genres, covers many related hobbies and offers a one stop experience for the fans and enthusiasts of those genres.
The vision of GottaCon is to host something for everyone including free-play and tournaments in board games, collectible/non-collectible miniatures, collectible trading cards, role-playing games, and electronic gaming as well as demonstrations, contests, information sessions, workshops, a variety of exhibitors.
Our goal is to deliver a high quality and exciting environment that will establish GottaCon as an annual destination that participants will return to for years to come. Our 2012 event is called GottaCon 2012. The convention doors open at 5:00pm Friday and do not close until 7:00pm Sunday (around the clock gaming for an entire weekend).
