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 a Kickstarter?

As with any first-time event, MGSCON needs to cover it's expenses and ensure enough fans will be able to attend. We want to make this a great fan experience, and raising funds will help us bring more guests and talent to our show. We are building this convention from the ground up and need whatever support we can get. 

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 :) 

Where can I find updates?
