Intervention is an awesome 3 day conference for people who enjoy learning amazing things and collaborating with other motivated people on a wide variety of projects targeted at the Internet generation.
Our name is the combination of the words “Internet” and “Convention” but the significance is deeper than that. The entire idea of this event is to Intervene and Inspire everyone to live a more creative, geeky, and fun life.
Run by the same people who brought you the critically-acclaimed (Re)Generation Who Doctor Who Convention, Intervention has a similar fun scope to a comicon. This means we have video gaming, performances, board gaming, a Film Festival, and a full Children’s Department.
Past participants in Intervention have gone on to achieve prestigious jobs, higher salaries, and formed successful full time small businesses of their own. Our community is made of intelligent self-starters who are looking for people to collaborate with them on the next big thing.
“It’s the best con I know of that’s geared toward independent creators and helping people get their work out there, among other things (there are plenty of nerd culture cons, but this one is the most con-goer friendly if that makes sense) And there’s no air of superiority/holier-than-thou-ness from the staff of the con.”

What is Onezumi Events?
Onezumi Events was founded in 2010 by Oni Hartstein and James Harknell. Onezumi Events immediately became synonymous with running events that are higher quality, welcoming to all people, and based in positive community.
Our experienced staff really cares that you have a great time and it shows. We believe in not just running events, but providing positive things for families to do together. Positive community changes lives.
We were one of the first major organizations to roll out an anti-harassment policy and to provide a safe space for all families, all genders. We’ve simplified and raised the bar on customer service at events.
Examples of what happens at our event:
I’ll let our track record speak for itself. Scroll back up and click the buttons on the right nav bar to get more information on what we do.
The best part? What we do changes and gets better every year. If you have something to contribute, you could be presenting. We are about the community – never about elitism. Elitism is for people who aren’t good at what they do.
This is how the next generation of Geeks get their party on.
