 How many attendees can be in one photo?

 What if I have a complaint? 

Please don't hesitate to locate the nearest MGSCON Staff if you have an issue. We are here to help make this event safe and enjoyable for everyone. 

 Why Los Angeles? 

Many of the talented (English) voice actors featured in the Metal Gear franchise are local to Los Angeles and therefore more accessible. Plus the event coordinator lives nearby :)
