Game of Thrones Convention ‘Con of Thrones’ Coming in 2017


The very active fan community Watchers on the Wall has announced that it will organize a convention dedicated to A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of ThronesCon of Thrones. The convention will take place on June 30th, 2017 in Nashville, TN.

Watchers on the Wall describe the event as “a celebration of all George R.R. Martin has given to the world, and what HBO and we the people have created because of it.” No sectarianism here, it won’t be an event dedicated to just one media or the other, but a celebration of the whole Game of Thrones universe. So far, the only precise thing we know is that it will be on a weekend. Watchers on the Wall has not revealed more information, for everything is still being prepared. However, the community has promised more news over the summer and the Con of Thrones’ website will launch in July at You can also follow the Con of Thrones Twitter account. Of course, we will keep you updated on the latest news of this exceptional event!

My name is Julie Escurignan, and as you can guess, I am a Fan and an Academic: a Fan of TV series and a PhD Student in Film and Television Studies at the University of Roehampton, London. I am passionate about TV series and fandom, that is why my PhD is on HBO-Game of Thrones' transnational fans and transmedia experience. Through my research, I am trying to understand what the experience of the fans of Game of Thrones is, i.e how we, as fans, experience the GoT universe, from the TV series to the online platforms, material creations and fans’ meetings.
