A Recap & Ranking Of Conventions I Attended In 2016

This is a continuation of a post I first made at the conclusion of 2014, where I ranked and reviewed the conventions I’d attended in 2014 and compared them against one another, as well as giving some general advice and information about conventions and ticket types in the United Kingdom. As I’ve written extensively detailed reviews of all of these conventions already, this will simply be a place to list the pros and cons of each event, as well as a place to make direct comparisons between them. It’ll cover some of the highlights of the convention year, some of the best guests, some of the biggest advantages and disadvantages of each company, and, of course, most importantly, the best convention of the year. So, theoretically, this will be much shorter than my average convention review or article.

So, theoretically, this will be much shorter than my average convention review or article, so you should be able to happily read this in one sitting.

A Recap & Ranking Of Conventions I Attended In 2014

So, halfway through my review of Buffy’s “Tabula Rasa”, I needed a break. Sometimes these really deep, intricate reviews can severely mentally drain you. Especially when you’re trying to juggle a full-time job, two part-time jobs, and two university modules at the same time. Therefore, to counteract all this work...I decided to create more for myself by writing this recap of my times on the convention scene in 2014, as well as giving some general advice and information about conventions and ticket types (primarily in the United Kingdom). Now, unlike my other convention-related posts, this one won’t be 20-25 A4-pages long. This is because, frankly, I’ve already written gigantic reviews of the conventions themselves, so most of the details are contained within those specific reviews. I will try to keep this post as brief as possible...but you know I get excited and fan-flailey, so bear that in mind. What this post will do is recap the year, talk about some of the highlights, talk about some of the best guests, and talk about advantages and disadvantages of different convention companies.
