When Things Go Wrong...
Come explore the diversity of smofdom! The art of running a great convention is
not limited to any one size or type. Small conventions and large ones share many
of the same problems and opportunities--and lessons learned cross all
boundaries. Our theme will reflect the interactivity of the "Smofcon Game" with
emphasis on subjects like "What to Do When Things Go Wrong", "Trust and Team
Building", "Bringing Technology to Conventions--and When Not To!", "So-And-So
Forgot to Be Told About X", "Green Eggs and Ham (or, Bad Food at Banquets)", and
"Problem Solving Without Assigning Blame".
We promise you new and exciting interactive activities, terrific food,
fascinating convention horror stories, a cornucopia of chocolate, an awesome
program, a wonderful con suite at the hub of the convention, and great
restaurants in a marvelous city. (Did we mention food?) Come and smof till
