20 nerd conventions for 2013Emerald City ComiconMaximumPCStar Trek uniform
Do you feel alone in your nerdiness, lost in a sea of fashionistas and sports fanatics who haven’t yet learned to appreciate the sexiness of a finely-honed mind or snug-fitting Star Trek uniform?
Then it’s time to check into this incredible list of must-see nerd conventions put together by MaximumPC to plan for a year of non-stop nerd action or at the very least add a few items to the bucket list.
Emerald City Comicon, March 1-3, 2013
If you live in the Seattle, Washington area and like comic books, you owe it to yourself to attend the Emerald City Comicon. You’ll find everything from discussion panels to celebrity signings, and even prize drawings. You might even spot a Storm Trooper.
Cebit, March 5-9, 2013
Friends, forget any silly chatter about the post-PC era. Conventions like Cebit prove that PCs are still very much relevant. It’s one of two expos in this gallery that takes place in Germany (Gamescom is the other).
PAX East, March 22-24, 2013
The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) saw such phenomenal growth since its inauguration that it now takes place in three locations. PAX East is held in Boston and is well worth a visit if you’re into PC gaming (aren’t we all?). Feel free to dress up in garb like these guys (see above).
Game Developers Conference (GDC), March 25-29, 2013
Billed as the largest and longest-running professionals-only game industry event, GDC is packed with over 22,500 attendees each year. It features hundreds of lectures, panels, tutorials, and round-table discussions.
