“Fans of true crime are not ghoulish macabre fans of serial killers or psychopaths but instead are sympathetic and empathetic fans of justice who are intrigued by the mysteries.” – Nancy Baughen, CrimeCon UK
CrimeCon is a weekend-long event designed to deliver an immersive interactive two days for fans of true crime. Expert speakers, interactive panels, and opportunities to learn and discover, bringing together those who work in the range of different fields that span true crime and those with an interest in the genre.
When you’ve watched all the documentaries, read all the books but you still want to know more, learn more, and experience more? It’s time to go to CrimeCon.
For the first time ever this event came to the UK in September 2021. It was such a success it’s coming back! London 11-12 June 2022 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel & Spa in St Paul’s.

The days of people’s interest in true crime being seen as weird, grotesque and born from an attraction to gore or serial killers are very much long gone. And thankfully so. People have an interest in this genre for a wide range of reasons and very few fit into this old school stereotype.
Psychology, justice, the criminal mind, victimology, cold cases and forensic science…just a few of the areas that capture attention, intrigue and a desire to learn.
You see CrimeCon isn’t about gaping at crime scene photos and excitedly discussing the graphic crimes of the latest serial killer. It’s about learning and discovering, understanding, and connecting.
CrimeCon brings together experts from across this field to give talks, hold interactive discussions and breakout sessions, and introduce attendees to new aspects of crime investigation, criminal cases, the criminal mind, and forensic analysis.
“Partnering with true crime TV channel, Crime + Investigation®, CrimeCon UK will bring together renowned criminologists, pathologists, leading law enforcement representatives, top level documentary makers, investigative journalists, and prime podcasters, creating over 50 wide-ranging hours of compelling and informative content through live shows, panels, immersive experiences and podcast row.”
“CrimeCon visitors aren’t passive viewers, they participate themselves, joining leading criminologists to get inside the minds of serial killers and renowned forensics experts to help examine evidence. Pathologists will help attendees discover what it’s like to be a real-life CSI, getting hands-on by examining forensic evidence from a famous case. They’ll learn interrogation techniques, test their detective skills, meet police K9 counterparts, question reformed criminals, deep-dive into unsolved cases and, most importantly, meet survivors and victim’s families – ensuring that those whose lives have been impacted by crime are never forgotten.”
We as human beings are curious by what frightens us there is no doubt about it, but we also have a drive for fairness, for kindness and for justice. The minds of others are fascinating to many of us. The psychology of those who seek to harm others through physical violence or psychological abuse and coercion is something the majority of us don’t fully understand because we can’t imagine ourselves doing that to another human being. We are inquisitive, intrigued by those who do and do so willingly with a sense of purpose and enjoyment. These are just some of the reasons a lot of us are drawn to true crime. Why we are fascinated by case after case and why we have a yearning to know more and to understand more.
Some of the speakers lined up for London 2022: Chief Crown Prosecutor Nazir Afzal, Forensic Psychologist Kerry Daynes, high profile investigator Mark-Williams-Thomas, retired Cold Case Investigator Paul Holes, Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist and podcast host Dr Sohom Das, and former Senior Investigating Officer in the Metropolitan Police Colin Sutton.

CrimeCon provides a platform for like-minded people to get together. A place where experts, experienced investigators, forensic scientists, criminologists, and psychologists can come together. It’s a dedicated space for true crime talks, participation sessions and educational opportunities. Underlying it all is respect for the victims of crime and their families and advocacy for bringing them the justice they deserve.
“CrimeCon has always helped support the families, victims, survivors, and associated charities of crime. No-one is ever featured, no case talked about without the families of any survivors or victims being consulted and approving. It is often a place where families can keep their story in the public eye and can keep media attention drawn to their plight.”
