The Providence Biltmore - Providence, RI
Download 2008 Program
"The Temple of Steam" would mark the first year of TempleCon officially celebrating all things retro-futurism! Choosing Steampunk as a focus theme for 2008, TempleCon took over the historic Providence Biltmore hotel and ran a massive event in an uncommonly luxurious venue!
With the Biltmore providing more space for the convention than ever before, TempleCon was able to not only blow event numbers from 2007 away, but also better use this space to run a massive variety of different events and panels. Our video gaming area would grow significantly, as did our roster of attending guest artists and gaming industry professionals. In addition to all of this, the Steampunk theme was impossible to miss, as first class costumers arrived geared up and looking great. Last but not least, a number of charity events were held, including an auction of some pretty awesome items, and TempleCon leveraged its new-found energy to do some serious good!
