WHAT WE'RE REALLY ALL ABOUT
KekCon was initially a demand amongst gamers ,but rolled over onto dedicated fans, and old school nerds. People who didn't have much of a voice and were being ignored. So an idea sparked. A gaming convention ,but old school. A 90's and early 2000's type-old. So thus KekCon was born. The name having rooted from that older generation of gaming but also some added humor as the it translated to 'lol' in a fantasy game from that era.
At the time Atlanta seemed to have had no conventions dedicated to gaming. Any gaming tracks were being downsized and many beloved franchises were being casted aside for corporate interest rather than that of the fan. The con scene was becoming something that was no longer meant for nerds. Slowly losing more and more fandom related content. We wanted to not only prevent this decline but offer an environment to expose the new generation of quality, older gen games. Games that break the monetization barrier and allow an opportunity for good times, education and learning about technology. All in an effort to teach about the industry, good ethical business practice and pursuing technological advancement to help advance society rather than regress it. We were wonderfully surprised by the positive reception and helped spark a booming renaissance in more than just our community, but those in the industry as well. More and more people are coming on board and other organizations are taking after us. We created a boom in the gaming scene in Atlanta just by our emergence alone. Currently, many Internet users are expressing their concern for the gaming, comic, and entertainment industry and now its being brought to life. A place where actual fans can have discussions and freedom from those who seek to tear down our communities socially and financially. As well as discuss our rights on the internet. We brought hope and excitement to members of the community whom have been around for decades, along with younglings who will be the content creators of tomorrow. We're ecstatic to say welcome Atlanta. Welcome to our #DigitalRevolution. Won't you take part?
