Entering its’ second decade, Designer Con returns with a BANG in 2016, adding 20,00 sq ft of space and an additional venue! Among this year’s event plans, DCon is working with Adventures in Design to MC special panels, presenting an art show exhibit with 1000 toys from Japan, and teaming up with Crewest Studios for a Saturday night party! Last year, Designer Con geared up its’ time machine for a slight diversion to the ’80s. This year, the event’s soft theme will be the 90s! And, that’s not all — Designer Con 2016 has, even more surprises to be announced, so stay tuned. Be sure to pen November 19-20 in your calendar!
Designer Con Growth
Designer Con began in 2005 and took place in a 1100 square foot room at the Pasadena Civic Center. Each year the show grew in attendance, vendors, attractions, and space to hold it all; from 1100 sq ft, to 3000 sq ft, to 10000 sq ft, to 25000 sq ft and this year, to a whopping 100,000 sq ft of art, toys, customs, apparel and more!
The 2005 show featured 10 vendors. In 2016, Designer Con will host nearly 400 amazing companies and artists! This year the show is, for the first time, adding a venue. The Rose, which is across the street from the Pasadena Convention Center, will host panels with special guests, as well as the official Designer Con Saturday night party!
