NEWCON PDX 2013
December 27th - 29th
Downtown Crowne Plaza
Just letting everyone out there know about Newcon. We’ve worked very hard to put together something amazing for you in our second year. This is a convention for celebrating everything in nerd culture, we want it to be a great way to celebrate the end of 2013.
We have Natalie Hoover, a rising Voice Actor. Natalie has had roles most recently in Magi and Sword Art Online. Natalie will join us for a number of panels on Voice Acting and the Industry.
We also have cosplayer, Crunchy Roll ambassador, and YouTube personality Meepy-Gal. In addition to hosting our cosplay contest, Meepy-Gal will be hosting panels on the industry, YouTube, and more.
For further entertainment we’ve turned to Conventional Improv. In addition to hosting their wildly funny Whose Line panels, they have a number of interactive game-shows for attendees.
We’ve also brought in the creative minds at Slightly Anime for their irreverent take on the dating game using costume audience members!
Let’s not forget that Newcon features not one, but TWO exciting electronic dances with local DJs Easter Island Head, Alex Young, and RoscoeTehClam. Paired with a live show from local rock group Sharks from Mars and a Ballroom Dance, the dance floor at night will be an exciting place.
This doesn’t include a very robust video game area, viewing room with a wide array of selections, and over 60 hours worth of panels about creation, entertainment, and more.
Check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/newconpdx and on the web at Newconpdx.com.
Hope to see you all there.
What art offers is s p a c e - a certain
breathing room for the spirit.
