What is Converge Con?
Converge Con is a conference that originated with a desire to build sex positive communities, and start a dialogue around sexuality, relationships and activism.
We intend to create an open and safe space for participants of all genders and backgrounds to connect with likeminded folk; a space which will spark conversations and foster the growth of new ideas.
Where is it held?
In Vancouver, Canada at the Holiday Inn Vancouver-Centre (Broadway).
When is it?
It will be held April 6-8, 2018.
Are you looking for volunteers?
If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to email@example.com.
Who is coming?
We want to bring together all kinds of people - sex educators, sex therapists, bloggers/vloggers, activists, authors, social workers, really anyone who is up for talking about making our world more sex positive.
Will there be gender neutral washrooms?
We did speak to the hotel about having gender neutral washrooms, but because they are located in the lobby it is not possible.
Is this a scent reduced event?
The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions. To help keep the air healthy for everyone, please do not wear perfume, cologne, aftershave and other fragrances.
FYI - The Holiday Inn participates in 'scent marketing'. This means they are required to have a scent in the lobby. They are unable to turn this off for the weekend, but there will be no scents in any other room. We do have one side of the ballroom blocked off this year for socializing, so hopefully no one will have to spend much time in the lobby!
- Please note this is a scent reduced event. The chemicals in some products can adversely effect some people, please keep the air fragrance free.
- The hotel has accessible rooms for rent, please see the Venue page for further info.
- The hotel and the rooms where the presentations are held are wheelchair accessible.
- If you would like to attend the event and require an attendant or ASL interpreter, or have other accessibility requirements, please contact Kale at firstname.lastname@example.org for further info.
Can I be a presenter?
Presenter submissions are closed! Please join our mailing list to hear when submissions open for 2019.
Will the presenters be compensated?
We would absolutely love to pay our presenters for all their hard work, but at this point we don't have the funds to do so. All presenters will receive full weekend access to Converge Con.
Who can attend?
Everyone is welcome, as long as they are 19+.
Is this an event for sex?
This is an event about sex, but not a sex event. There will be no organized play spaces. That being said, it will be held in a hotel, so what you do in your own room is up to you (as long as you're following hotel policy).
