The annual event attracts thousands of fans and professionals with exceptional consumer and product awareness. Finncon attendants range in age from 10 to 80 years.

The professional profile of Finncon attendants speaks for itself: they are highly educated and often work in the IT industry, education or research, creative professions, arts and culture, and as designers, testers, and users of technology. The nationwide network of fans is international and had a significant role in introducing anime and manga to Finland, for example.

Finncon has always had high media visibility both in nationwide media sources as well as in regional and specialist publications and also internationally.Finncon is a circulating event: in Jyväskylä it is organized as part of the Jyväskylän Kesä festival that also advertises the event throughout Finland. The science fiction and fantasy genres have taken over all media to such extent that research proves them to be a part of mainstream culture already.
