What is a convention?
You're looking for the place where Captain Kirk and Luke Skywalker say good night? Or how do you do?

It may sound unlikely, but there is such a place or event. Once a year all borders in the science fiction universe are lifted, nothing is impossible.

FedCon - Meet your science fiction stars. A success story for 24 years now. Started as pure Star Trek convention all common fandoms are represented - from Star Wars, over Stargate, Firefly, Doctor Who, Torchwood and Battlestar Galactica...

... and there are more and more!

What is a convention?
But what else is FedCon? What do you do there, what is there to experience?

Many visitors see them as one thing above all: The possibility to meet like-minded people, to exchange ideas, to live out our common hobby.

This starts with numerous shopping opportunities in the so-called dealer room, where you can buy what your heart desires. It continues with workshops, exhibitions, fan campaigns, parties...

... there are no limits to your imagination.

What is a convention?
Special highlight however, that is undisputed: The Guest Stars!

In the past 20 years everything that has rank and name has been present at least once at FedCon, answered the questions of the fans and gave autographs. Every year, new, great stars are selected and the mix put together that should satisfy everyone, as it covers all fandoms equally.

We were allowed to William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols, Richard Dean Anderson, Dirk Benedict, Kate Mulgrew, Jonathan Frakes, Edward James Olmos, Summer Glau, Brent Spiner and many others more welcome us and keep trying to improve!

What is a convention?
Nowhere else do you have the opportunity to get autographs from the stars personally, to get signed on your favourite pieces, to have a short chat. An absolute highlight are also the photo sessions - a personal photo with your favourite actor as a reminder of an unforgettable weekend!

Some of our star guests like to mingle with the visitors during the day or at the parties and are happy to have personal contact with the fans! Many of them are already visible at breakfast in the hotel, so it is worth getting up early!

FedCon is an event by fans for fans. That makes them special. Because you can feel the joy of the organizers and volunteers in every little bit. That's what makes it special and hopefully captures you as much as it captures us!

We would be happy to welcome you at FedCon and guarantee that your first visit will not be the last! Because anyone who has ever been to FedCon will come back!
