We're so excited for our second annual convention! Last year we launched to great attendance and even better community support. We'd like to thank everyone who came out and gave our first year a chance, and we're determined to make 2017 even better!

Our executive staff has nearly 40 years of combined experience putting on more than 85 events across the country. Last year, we proved we know how to run a fun, safe and organized convention. We've taken all your feedback into account and can't wait to show you what we have planned for the future!
