RavenCon is a fan-run event and we’re not the only fan group out there. Not by a long shot. When you’re at the convention, stop by and talk to some of the other fan groups that will be here to promote their organizations. We have an entire hall dedicated to promoting these groups.
If you are interested in bringing your fan group to RavenCon 11 in 2016, please fill out a Fan Table Application form.
