Do they even have them in the US? You mean like Comic Con? Cause there is the MCM Expo in London and it is coming to Manchester. Or do you mean a convention about Futurama ONLY?

I think a convention for Futurama (wherever it was held) would probably be a hard sell. Most conventions straddle multiple things and only the biggest are really profitable.

A sci-fi convention with a Futurama booth, though... I can see that happening. Sometime. Somewhere.

I have seen posters for a True Blood convention and a Glee convention here in the UK, but they cost about 80 quid for the most basic ticket. 

We did have Lauren Tom, Billy West and a few other people here at the last london expo, but I missed them by ten minutes.  Stupid line to get in.  Stupid London Transport always having engineering works on a bank holiday.

The nearest is probably an AGI I'd imagine? Other than that I don't see a convention solely for Futurama ever happening, sadly. Has it ever even happened for The Simpsons?...

Funnily enough, any time there's Futurama at an AGI, people get bored or fall asleep. In fact, we don't seem to watch Futurama at PEELathons either. I'm guessing it's the same at an AGI-Alia.

Comic Con is the the closest you'll get to a Futurama Convention. There are only a few things big enough to have their own conventions, like Star Wars.
Everything else goes to Comic Con.

There are "cons" in different cities in the US, for example the sci fi con in Seattle is in March. But the biggest one in US is definitely SDCC because it's big internationally. Don't know about UK.
