AthensCon is the first big convention held in Greece that is heavily influenced by worldwide Comic-Cons and conventions promoting popular interests of our times. It is a celebration of modern pop culture and hobbies related to it; a celebration of a culture originating from both society itself and the Arts, always touching people in a unique and profound way. Every one of us chooses a different way to enjoy life in their leisure time: some of us read books, graphic novels and comics, others watch movies and/or TV-series; some play video games and others board and role playing games. Many of us engage in more than one of those activities, on a daily basis. Why? Because those are some of the best mediums to bring out strong emotions and deep thoughts. AthensCon is all about that. It is a hub full of life and color, joy and laughter, awe and admiration. It is the place where you can experience grand feelings with every step you make and every exhibit you visit during this two-day-long festivity.
