RoundCon Expo 2013 Official Announcement
We are happy to announce that RoundCon Expo 2013 will take place August 2-4, 2013 at the Medallion Center located on Garner’s Ferry Road. Website will be updated by January 21st,2013.
Our staff has been hard at work choosing a venue that fit our methodology to entertainment. We also wanted to make sure that we had the key staff in place for continued quality programming. We listened carefully to all the feedback we were provided from the last three events.
One of the key changes to this year’s RoundCon Expo is the expansion of the table-top gaming programing. Contrary to rumor mill, we have never forgotten our roots in gaming. They were just misplaced for a time while we explored new programming. To facilitate a more comprehensive experience, we sought out the best individuals in the field to organize the massive gaming halls - Ron McClung and Jeff Smith. In addition we will have the folks from Storm Con helping out once again.
Anime and Cosplay Fans do not fret … we are also expanding our anime line up! The first and most exciting addition to the convention is a formal ball! We will also see the return of the AMV contest, game shows and a several live action events. Plus, we have several surprises in store that we are not ready to talk about.
We will also see the return of the film festival thanks to STIFF Magazine and Monster Con.
A lot is in the planning stages especially with the staff focused on the all new March event. Yes, you read that correctly. There is a new March event, which is just the first of many focused micro-events.
RoundCon Expo may have been quiet, but we have not been idle.

Goodnight RoundCon Expo 2012
There can only be two words to describe this year’s RoundCon Expo – SPECTACULAR, SPECTACULR!
For the past two years we have experimented with different programming arrangements as we looked to expand beyond table-top gaming. It was not easy, change never is. Along the way we stumbled. We were told that our efforts were futile by the naysayers. In the end we did more than just endure, we soared!
RoundCon Expo 2012 was our finest hour in the entire 26 year history of the convention! We had over 300 enthusiastic people come and enjoy themselves at the event.
Thank you everyone so much for attending!
We cannot wait to see you again in 2013!
My oh My, Updates!
Hotel rooms are still available. Remember with the Double Tree if you stay in the hotel they give you cookies! I am not joking about this!
