Education made Entertaining

At Better Event Co., we believe that learning can be fun, and fun can be educational. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating entertaining events that seamlessly blend the worlds of entertainment and education. Our mission is to inspire, educate, and entertain, all while fostering a strong sense of community and collaboration.

Our Story

Better Event Co. was born out of a desire to transform traditional conventions into exciting, immersive experiences. We recognized that many people are passionate about entertainment, and we wanted to provide a platform where they could learn, connect, and grow within their fields of interest. Our journey began with a small team of like-minded individuals who shared a passion for learning and a love for all things entertainment. Today, we’re proud to bring you a wide range of events that cater to diverse interests and age groups.

What We Do

Conventions That Inspire: We curate conventions that offer something for everyone, whether you’re a die-hard fan of pop culture, a tech enthusiast, an artist, or a lifelong learner. Each event is designed to inspire and spark your curiosity.

Education and Entertainment: At Better Event Co, we believe that education should be enjoyable. Our conventions feature a harmonious blend of workshops, panel discussions, interactive sessions, and live performances. You can learn from experts, engage with your favorite creators, and have a blast while doing so.

Community and Collaboration: We provide a welcoming environment for people to come together, share their passions, and connect with like-minded individuals. Our conventions encourage collaboration and networking, helping you expand your horizons and build lasting relationships.

Previous Event: PhileFest

PhileFest, held in September 2023, emerged as the paramount X-Files-themed event to date. Boasting a stellar lineup of over two dozen actors, writers, and producers from the iconic show – including creator Chris Carter, Mitch Pileggi, Annabeth Gish, The Lone Gunmen, and many, many more – it stood as the ultimate tribute to the 30th anniversary of a series that reshaped television history. A global gathering of X-Philes, the event was filled with unforgettable moments, behind-the-scenes magic, and showcased the impact The X-Files had on the history of television.
