In the past decade, pockets of communities have emerged across the globe, with the Internet helping expand people’s minds and connect like-minded individuals everywhere. In this change, many conventions have risen to help bring people with similar interests together in one setting.
From conventions, such as ComicCon (exploring everything there is to do with the comic-book world) to K-Con (events and panels related to K-pop, korean culture, etc.), these places serve as a meeting point for people of similar interests to enjoy themselves. Amongst these is a more newer convention known as CombatCon – a place where history and fantasy meet.
