Some of the things you’ll find at 2D Con:
Alongside our main gaming events, our fans enjoy our cosplay contest, learn about the video game industry in our panels, or play one of many independent games at Indie Island.
We find it important that there is always something to do and are continually expanding our offerings. In 2021 we added our own Trading Card Game featuring our staff and special guests.
2D Con is ran by a group of volunteers who have been in the local esports, tournaments, and gaming scene and hosting tournaments and events since 2010. With varied backgrounds in game development, information technology, production, design, marketing, and event planning, we work hard to give our attendees an unforgettable event and our sponsors an engaged audience. We hold a firm belief that our attendees are our #1 priority.
