Convention with tradition

The German convention, which was held for the first time in 1992 - back then as a pure fan meeting with Walter Koenig as a guest - invites fans to experience their stars from TV and films up close.

The organizer, Fed Con GmbH, states that the convention is Europe's largest in the field of Star Trek and science fiction. Real fans shouldn't care anyway, because this event is well attended and “star-heavy” every year.

The visits of guest stars are only part of the convention: it's about meeting like-minded people, presenting your latest cosplay costumes or taking part in workshops, panels or special events. The lectures deal with special effects, toys, mystery, but also classic topics from fictional science, such as time travel or computer technologies. The Fed Con is more than just a “costume event”.
