Savcon, now revamped for 2014, is catered to everyone. With us still being relatively new in Savannah, Georgia we want to make sure that all fans in and around our surrounding area as well as all over the country benefit from what we have to offer.
That being said, our show has incorporated 80's nostalgia, Anime, TF, GI Joe, Thundercats, TMNT, HeMan, Super Heroes etc. to become a pop culture convention. While still remaining true to our roots, which is Transformers, we will now offer something for all genre types so everyone can enjoy the weekend in 2014.
Here is but a glance of what we have to offer you for our show on June 27-29, 2014.

Shouldn't that be October 1, 2013?
Anyway, I went to Savcon last year, it was fun. It was small, but it was the 1st year, so it was understandable. Looking forward to next year and the changes made.

Absolutely! Thank you for noticing! I will correct it.
Preregister does open on October 1st 2013.

I'm glad you enjoyed our show. it seriously pained me to cancel the 2013 show, but with the tragic death of a family member and relocation to another state for a short period of time, I had no option.
Things will be a lot more spread out next year so we can have more people attend.

Thank you for the comment!

Motto: "Yesssssssss....."
Weapon: High Energy MASER Cannons
Apparently SavCon 2014 has been cancelled, and potentially all future SavCons. Their website is now blank, their facebook page and twitter account are both deleted, and a little googling gave me this post:
Yes the show has been cancelled. The hotel wanted to add some more charges and that would of put him way over budget. He could not see contacting dealers and paid registered people stating that they need to pay more money

This is very unfortunate to all Transformers fans in the southeast. Are there any other TF cons in this area?

Yes this show has been canceled. They were some changes that the hotel wanted to add into the contact after talks were started. It would of removed a 3rd of the tables from the dealer room. Their were also some benefits the hotel was going to give at the start of talks that they wanted to not honor after we started. It a shame as this show had a great fan based. We were going to set up at the show later this month. We will be at BOTCON and at TFCON. WE are know in talks with the Joe Atlanta show that is held in march each year. Hope to see our fans at that show
