Another Retro Con has come and gone! We’re still tallying up, but we definitely moved up another notch in attendance for 2016! Our favorite observation this year was seeing more of you taking advantage of our full range of features. We saw many more people taking in panels, participating in contests, and playing the games. We like to think of ourselves as more than just a toy/collectible show, and always encourage attendees to make the most of their time at the show!
We’d like to thank all of our amazing guests, the vendors with their impressive variety of retro and retro-inspired merchandise, all of our very spirited attendees, the sociable costume groups, our generous sponsors for the year (RetroDaze, Arnold’s Family Fun Center, American Treasures Tour, Cheeburger Cheeburger), our gaming exhibitors, the car owners, our excellent A/V crew, the press outlets that covered the show, Regal Cinema for lining up a movie for us, and everyone that helped add to the show by dressing up in costume! As we always like to say, we supply the sandbox, but it’s what YOU bring that gives the show its true atmosphere.
And of course an extra special thank you to all of our staffers and volunteers! This show would not be possible without your help and going the extra mile when run into snags. We feel very lucky to have such devoted friends in our corner.
We’ll be putting together a gallery of interesting sights around the show very soon, so stay tuned! But in the meantime check out this montage video from the show made by Bestow Productions! Thanks again to all that attended or supported Retro Con 2016!!
