Alec Baldwin, Zachary Levi, Katee Sackhoff

There will be cosplay contests, vendors and panels. (The panels have not yet been finalized.)

Dan Farr, who runs comparable conventions in Salt Lake City, Utah; Tampa, Florida; and Indianapolis, Indiana, said he doesn’t see this as competition to the larger and longer running Dragon Con, which runs Labor Day weekend in multiple hotels in downtown Atlanta.

“I don’t want to take away a single person from Dragon Con,” Farr said. “I like the idea of people going to both. I think the world is big enough for both of us.”

He said about 20,000 people attended last year and he hopes to hit 25,000 this year.
