A convention is an annual gathering of fans, collectors, and creators of various types of media. Common types of conventions spotlight toys, comic books, anime, sci-fi, and the like.
Transformer-themed conventions have been occurring regularly since the early 1990s, and continue to grow in popularity. These usually feature various guests, including voice actors, writers, comic & cartoon creators, and Hasbro representatives. They also include a stunning array of vendors buying & selling Transformers (and other non-TF transforming-robot) toys from every part of the world.
