A-Kon® 28 Partners with the City of Fort Worth

That's right everyone we're growing again! For our 28th anniverary we are taking over downtown Fort Worth. With this change we are excited announce our new partnership with the City of Fort Worth and the surrounding hotels, who together, are making this our biggest venue to date!

The Fort Worth Convention Center is within walking distance of thousands of downtown Fort Worth hotel rooms, a variety of delicious restaurants and fabulous shopping. It offers more than 250,000 square feet of exhibit space, nearly 60,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, an impressive 28,160 square-foot ballroom, a 13,500 person events arena, and a 55,000 square foot events plaza that connects to the one-of-a-kind Fort Worth Water Gardens.

The Fort Worth Water Gardens is a beautiful and oasis adjacent to the Fort Worth Convention Center. Designed by Phillip Johnson, the Fort Worth Water Gardens is an architectural and engineering marvel. With tons of scenery for amazing photo shoots, several large areas to congregate and it's own ampitheater we are excited to say that this year will open up new opportunities for cosplayers, groups, social communities and fans alike.

For those of you wanting more programming just wait. Our new partnership with the surrounding hotels have provided us with a multitude of phenominal options for additional programming, allowing us to provide content through most of downtown Fort Worth.

In addition to extended programming, our new partnership brings with it the ability to offer something new for everyone - "Active" and "Good Night" hotels. "Active" hotels are hotels that may contain late night programming, welcome late night activity or are "social" friendly at all hours during the convention. While "Good Night" hotels are hotels that are structured to provide quiet hours from 12am to 8am for guests, families and fans who need to catch a good night's sleep before jumping into activites the next day.

There's plenty more to come so stay tuned and make sure to Register Now before pricing goes up on October 17th.
