Ring of Fire Con News

Rescheduling for Success!

ROFCON will be four days! October 8 – 11!

While we were planning for the Ring of Fire Convention to be on September 11 – 13 we were looking at the schedule and realized that we want to provide the best experience for everyone coming. To do that the RoF team discussed the technical requirements and opportunities for doing ROFCON later than announced. Since ROFCON will be virtual it has presented us with the opportunity to do more with a bit of extra time and investment. Postponing a virtual convention presents much less of a problem for guests, since there are no travel or hotel expenses or reservations involved, so we decided to be ambitious.

The 2020 Ring of Fire Convention will run for four days, from October 8th to October 11th with all of the guests we have announced thus far as well as some more surprises that are coming your way in future.

Come see the best in genre entertainment with panels, guests, and signing opportunities!

ATTENDANCE AT THE CONVENTION IS FREE—but you do need to register to attend. Once you register, you will be kept informed of news and developments as we approach the convention.
