The BoroughCon team keeps moving forward!
As you can tell, we’ve done a lot of fine tuning and content publication on this web site. Thank you all for your comments and letting us know where you ran into glitches! We intend to keep making these pages more user-friendly as well as informative. We definitely have seen a spike in downloads of our vendor and artist forms!
We’ve also been posting premium content, to which we hope you subscribe. It’s more for con-runners than the broader public. Still, if you’re an entrepreneur or just a fan-of-fandom who wants an Inside Baseball view of how the magic happens, you’ll get a lot out of it. We put together the first searchable, filterable table of all the pop culture conventions in the United States with 10,000 or more attendees, then we wrote a separate article featuring leaderboards for the biggest cons, the biggest second-tier cons, the busiest weekends for conrunners, the most competitive weekends for talent and the cities with the most major cons. Just this morning, we dropped a how-to guide for constructing the kind of business plan that will help you raise money for your event. More to come.
All this content is free (for now at least). We do ask that, if you would like to see this business-y stuff, you share your name and email address with us and permit us to send you a periodic newsletter updating you on all things BoroughCon, including news and features exclusive to our subscribers. Even if you don’t care for the premium content, you can still subscribe to the newsletter. You can also view all the insightful comic/film/gaming reviews and irreverent blog posts we’ve been putting up here.
Matt will be back from his East Asian adventure soon, and Victor will be returning from his month-long lost weekend on a beach in Mexico. They’re the ones tasked with securing the talent and vendors so, once they settle back in here, we’ll be making a bunch of announcements. Stay tuned!
