Mischief Management CEO tells us about the return of Con of Thrones!


Great news, everyone: Con of Thrones is coming back! Put on by Mischief Management, Con of Thrones is the premiere unofficial Game of Thrones fan convention, where fans of everything ThronesA Song of Ice and Fire and now House of the Dragon gather to meet stars from the show(s), attend panels, debut amazing cosplay, sing, dance and generally nerd out!

I went to the first three Con of Thrones events before the convention took a pandemic-mandated break, so I’m thrilled to hear that it’s returning this year. Ahead of that glorious event, I was able to talk to Mischief Management CEO Melissa Anelli about what’s in store!

Watch our conversation below:

How is Con of Thrones different from the Official Game of Thrones Fan Convention?

Some of the topics we hit:

  • Why Con of Thrones is coming back after its three-year absence
  • How the focus on the fans sets Con of Thrones apart from the (still great) Official Game of Thrones Fan Convention put on by HBO
  • What kind of guests, panels and parties fans can expect
  • Why being an event planner is one of the most stressful jobs on Earth

Thanks very much to Melissa for taking the time to talk to us!
