Con of Thrones is planned for Nashville next year.  The event, being organized by the group behind BroadwayCon, the Game of Thrones fan website Watchers on the Wall and the Game of Thrones fan podcast Game of Owns.   The convention is set for June 30-July 2, 2017, although no venue has been announced.

Organizers promise panels, autograph and photo opportunities, meet-and-greets, concerts and an Ice and Fire Marketplace with merchandise and memorabilia from various exhibitors and vendors.

“This will be a celebration of all George R.R. Martin has given to the world and what HBO and we the people have created because of it, said Zack Luye, co-director of Watchers on the Wall and Game of Owns, in a statement. “The event will be led by die-hard fans of the series and no detail will go unnoticed; the time is right to celebrate with the people who love Game of Thrones most.”
