The idea behind Ring*Con originates with Marcel Bülles of the Deutsche Tolkien Gesellschaft and Stefan Servos, founder of the well-know German fansite Herr-Der-Ringe-Film.de. The idea was to bring together fans, have them meet actors of the movies, and also provide a place to engage with scholars in panels and discussions.
The first convention was held November 22-24 2002 in Bonn, Germany. About 1500 fans found their way there.
