    A positive word of mouth was spread by celebrities on their own websites and media accounts regarding not just Fort Con but the area and town of Fort William itself.

    Fort Con 2 is estimated to reach much higher levels of tickets sold from further afield and have a much higher attendance. The level of interest on Fort Con 2 is much higher this year and as such provides a good level of return on sponsorship.

    The new volunteer association running the event this year is on a not-for-profit basis which means the more tickets we sell and more sponsorship we get, the better we can make the event and the more people will have access to and see the marketing efforts we put in for our sponsors. 

    Fort Con is growing in size and becoming mroe known in the region and as such, now is a perfect time to get in on the funding of the event.
