who are we?

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.
