Dragonsteel Nexus 2024

Prepare to step into a realm where imagination knows no bounds, for this December, the eagerly anticipated DragonSteel Nexus 2024 (December 5-7) at Salt Lake City's Utah Convention Center is set to transport fans on an unforgettable journey through the boundless landscapes of fantasy. Organized by the visionary author Brandon Sanderson himself, this event promises to be a celebration unlike any other, where fans from all walks of life come together to revel in the wonders of storytelling and creativity.

Nestled in the heart of a vibrant metropolis, the DragonSteel Nexus serves as a nexus point for fans of Brandon Sanderson's expansive literary universe and beyond. From the iconic worlds of the Cosmere to the far-flung realms of epic fantasy and science fiction, attendees will have the opportunity to explore the rich tapestry of Sanderson's imagination, as well as discover new worlds and stories that capture the essence of adventure and discovery.

Patrons will find themselves immersed in a breathtaking spectacle of sights and sounds. Elaborate displays and art that bring to life the iconic locations and characters from Sanderson's novels, offering fans a chance to walk in the footsteps of their favorite heroes and heroines. From the towering spires of Roshar to the mist-shrouded streets of Scadrial, every corner of the Nexus is steeped in the rich lore and history of Sanderson's literary creations.

At the heart of this event lies a gathering place for fans and creators alike to share their passion for storytelling and world-building. Panels and workshops led by renowned authors, artists, and industry professionals offer insights into the craft of writing, character design, and world-building, providing attendees with the tools and inspiration to embark on their own creative journeys.

But perhaps the true magic of the DragonSteel Nexus lies in its sense of community and camaraderie. From lively debates and spirited discussions to impromptu cosplay meetups and gaming sessions, the Nexus buzzes with the energy of like-minded fans coming together to celebrate their shared love of fantasy and science fiction. Friendships are forged, memories are made, and lifelong bonds are formed as attendees unite in their passion for the written word and the power of imagination. 

If you want proof of the event's popularity, consider this: when ticket sales opened, it took less than an hour (50 minutes) for all 1,500 VIP and 10,000 general admission tickets to sell out. Hopefully, more tickets will become available, and I hope to see you there so we can celebrate the release of the highly anticipated Stormlight 5: Wind and Truth together.
