The Olamot Convention for Science Fiction and Fantasy is an annual event which will take place on 23-24 April 2019 for the 14th time. It is a gathering of the Israeli science fiction and fantasy community that includes events for fans of all ages, and is highly anticipated every year.

This year's convention will consist of more than 130 events, including lectures, panel discussions, contests, professional workshops and even stage shows. It provides the different fandoms with a venue to celebrate their mutual passion for their favourite books, movies, TV shows, etc., while welcoming all newcomers to the thriving community.
Olamot is produced by non-profit organizations that work year-round to promote communities and creators of science fiction and fantasy, and strive to make these genres more accessible to the audience. We also take pride in providing a stage to independent Israeli authors, playwrights, filmmakers, and other artists creating within these genres.
Olamot Convention is the high point of a months-long endeavor, made possible thanks to the passion and hard work of hundreds of volunteers, from the convention director to every last staff member. Their only reward is the event itself, as all profits go back to the producing organizations and are used for to further the cause of science fiction and fantasy in Israel.
