With the large number of conventions and Attendees that Utah has every year, it’s no wonder that we were deemed the nerdiest state in the US in an Estatly Blog post in 2014.
The big one “FanX” is just around the corner and we only have until September to prepare. How much preparation do you need? Well, that might all depend on what kind of attendee you are. Find out what kind of attendee you are in this fun survey.

Pop Culture Appreciator
Events like these give you a good reason to get out and meet people who enjoy the same things that you do. You are a fan of most things represented at the event whether it be Sci-Fi authors, video game cosplayers, or meeting the star of your favorite show. You don’t usually dress up in cosplay, but you wear something more subtle to show your fandom.
Star Struck Fan
Your attendance is solely based on the announcement of your favorite celebrity. You have done everything possible so that you can be the first in line and would love to camp out. Dressing up isn’t really your thing, but you hope to see someone dressed up as the character from your favorite TV show.
You spend most of your time playing games at this event. Your t-shirt shows the where your loyalties lie in terms of gaming consoles. Meeting your favorite voice actor might also draw your attention, but to be honest, you are really searching the vendor floor for that one of a kind special edition controller for your favorite gaming system.
Best Mom or Dad Ever
Your kids are your top priority. The event is fun for you but most of your joy comes from seeing your children experience the magic of the event. You spend most of your time there helping your kids make crafts and just making sure they have fun.
