ABOUT CON COMMAND
Con Command's Goal:
to be the ultimate source for local convention listings on a global scale.
The way we get there is by the following:
- Offering completely free event listings with no strings attached
- Maintaining a timely and relevant database by removing outdated and useless content
- Protecting all private information
- Maintaining a secure and user friendly environment
- Expanding the database and search to cover events on a global scale
- Providing the most advanced search engine while maintaining ease-of-use
What Does It Cost?
The listing service is completely free with no strings attached, though we ask that you link to this website so that
search engines will drive more users to Con Command. Other planned services will be released that may have fees attached
to them, but the listing service will always be free.
Who Can List On Con Command?
Con Command has been initially designed for fandom as a whole, with emphasis on gaming, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, miniatures,
comics, sports, and other similar events. However, we invite anyone and everyone to use this database tool while your event
adheres to the following guidelines:
With the above restrictions in mind, Con Command encourages conventions, events, conferences, fairs, fan clubs, community groups,
gatherings, or parties to list their public events here.
- No Adult Content (please find another place to list this type of event)
- No Illegal Activities (duh!)
- No Terrorist Activities (they're illegal too...double duh!)
- No Exclusionary or Anti-(insert group here) Activities
- We reserve the right to add guidelines to this list as needed

How Current Are The Listings?
listings pending confirmation or approval
Listing contacts are asked to update their event listings in 3 month intervals. When a listing is 14 months old, and no updates
have been made, the listing is no longer active in the database.
Why 14 months? Since many conventions are annual events, this provides the contact with plenty of time to plan the next
