MegaCon, short for Mega Convention, is a large convention that caters to the comic book, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, gaming, and multi-genre community. MegaCon 2012 will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from February 17-19, 2012.
MegaCon attendees will find over 156,000 square feet (14,500 m2) of exhibit space with merchandise. Merchandise spans many age groups and genres. Events include Indy Film Festival, annual cosplay/costume contest, all genre costume contest, panels, and rave dances. MegaCon guests have included June Lockhart (Lost in Space), Lou Ferrigno (The Hulk), Ray Park (Star Wars), and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules).
As with many conventions, MegaCon attendees can volunteer to work a minimum of a four-hour shift to enjoy the remainder of that day free. Space is always limited, so planning ahead is suggested.
MegaCon also offers attendees the option of game playing. Current game systems offered are Dungeons & Dragons living campaigns, Living Forgotten Realms, Pathfinder Society and Legends of the Shining Jewel. Other non-campaign role playing games are offered. Magic the gathering is also offered in a card room, and board and strategic games are often on the dealer floor.
