Attend SavCon, A New Event For Transformers Fans

The Romantic Inns of Savannah welcome you as our guests during the first Savannah SavCon Transformers Convention!  This first installment of what we hope will become an annual area event for fans of the Transformers Franchise.

Held from June 22, 2012 through June 24, 2012 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Savannah, the event features Hollywood stars and voice actors from the Transformers entertainment industry.  Event activities include autograph sessions, dealer booths, an art contest, costume contests, and a variety of panel sessions.  Of course, you will see the amazing costumes of the general attendees each day (costumes optional for attendees).

This year's special guests include a team of voice actors including Neil Kaplan, Daniel Ross, Greg Berger, and Lee Tockar (meet them at autograph sessions).  Pre-registrants have the opportunity to attend a concert featuring Tailirine Irene, a Savannah Native who entertains with techno-geek rock/rap/musical performances.

Panel speakers/topics include:

- Cosplay for a Cure, showcasing costumes and taking donations for Cancer awareness.
- East Coast Cosplayers, discussing costume creation and implementation.
- Transcostumers, discussing the creation of costumes seen all over the country.
- Ragin Nation "LIVE", discussing movie direction and video vlogging, among other topics.
- "Randall Ng, My Animated Life: Blood, Sweat, and Gears," regarding Randall's career in gaming and animation.
- Voice Acting Panel, all about careers in voice acting, by voice actors Neil Kaplan, Daniel Ross, Greg Berger, and Lee Tockar.
- "Transforming Transformers: Making Transformers Funny," featuring Transformers humor by Jon Bailey Crumpton, a voice-over artist and impressionist.

While rooms may be available at the Hilton, we find that many convention-goers prefer to get away to a more hospitable and relaxing atmosphere of a Savannah bed and breakfast inn.  So book your room now to enjoy both great Savannah lodging and an unforgettable SavCon Convention!
