This year's convention is July 12-14 at the Hilton Bayfront in St. Petersburg.

Three day membership is $40 but daily memberships are also available.

Brit Track

This year we're hosting one entire track on Saturday of panels and events devoted to British TV!

Doctor Who
And Now for Something Completely Different-British Comedy & More
Steampunk Fashion & Costuming
Beyond Sherlock: Crime & Drama in the UK
The Next Invasion: British Actors in Hollywood
Holmesian Tea Party (trivia, games, prizes, and more!)

As a BritTrack attendee you will have access to SoMeCon's well stocked con suite, and other programming tracts. Come for the day, stay for the vid show and Vogon Prose!

And for the first time in SoMeCon history we are hosting - a costume contest / talent show! Come as your favorite TV/movie/comic/anime character, alien, steampunk persona, alternate universe detective or original character. Come sing a filk song or recite Shakespere as your favorite Doctor would, or... whatever! The costume contest will be a featured event on Saturday afternoon, leaving plenty of time for fans to gather for the traditional, wonderful Italian buffet dinner.

We are currently taking suggestions for panels. Panels are scheduled for Friday afternoon, all day Saturday, and Sunday until 3pm. We run two concurrent panel tracks each day. There will be one panel track opposite of the all day Brit Track on Saturday.

More information about the convention with registration and hotel information is available at the Southern Media Con website.
