About us

GenghisCon was born from forward thinking uni students' need for a more affordable Science Fiction, Fantasy and Gaming convention.

It all started in 2001 when a group of students got together to try to plan an affordable fun-filled convention – nothing in Perth filled that niche and people were getting restless about events becoming more expensive and commercial.

Since then, GenghisCon has been running a yearly sci-fi and fantasy convention in January. We host a range of activities at GenghisCon, including panels, workshops, cosplay, board gaming, RPGs, video gaming and more!

We look forward to seeing you at future GenghisCon events!
