ConGlomeration is an annual multigenre convention held in or around Louisville, Kentucky. ConGlomeration is an all-volunteer non-profit organization which, as part of its convention programming, conducts charitable fundraising activities on behalf of the American Cancer Society. With the unexpected closure of the convention's hotel in 2008, the operation of the convention was disrupted, but resumed in 2010. ConGlomeration 2017 will be held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Louisville on April 7–9, 2017.
ConGlomeration is a broad-based fan convention, incorporating aspects of a gaming convention, science fiction convention and, in 2006, 2007 and 2008, a writing workshop run by Apex Magazine. A 24-hour staffed game room, a LARP, tracked author programming, a costume masquerade, a dealer's room, and a genre art auction are regular components of ConGlomeration's official activities.
The convention mascot is a platypus that dons various disguises —- including a giant mecha robot, a homage to Gandalf, and King Kong—for his appearance on the official con T-shirt, which is given to staff and volunteers.
