ConDB came about because an author tried to find conventions to approach for panelist services. The best collection he found had around 100 conventions listed, including many now-defunct events.
The hapless author then did something stupid — he began to research and dig through the web to find as many conventions as possible. Time that should have been spent working on his next novel ended up going towards a massive listing of over 600 conventions worldwide. Once this treasure trove of data was collected, he had to decide what to do with it.
The answer is ConDB, which should be one of the most comprehensive assemblies of convention listings on the Internet. As a service to his fellow authors, he decided to include contact information for programming directors, plus links to each convention’s anti-harassment policies and special services offered.
I hope you find this convention listing useful, and thank you for visiting. If you are curious about my work as an author, please visit my author page at GuyAnthonyDeMarco.com or my listing on Wikipedia.
