Omnicon was a South Florida science fiction media convention started in 1979 by Paul Cordsmeyer. It was held in Miami for about eight years before trying to move to Orlando, Florida. In its later years it had some financial difficulties. Eventually it tried a couple of times to to run as a convention cruise.

The convention focused primarily on Doctor Who although it had many guests and programs on other media areas. It also kept a focus on literary science fiction by having an author guest each year.
