Advertising with MechaCon

Beginning as a convention to bridge the genres of Anime and Transformers with Japanese cultural exhibits, panels and presentations, MechaCon has expanded to include a broader variety of content including Sci-fi and Fantasy. With a large number of our attendees choosing MechaCon as their very first convention experience, MechaCon offers advertisers a virtually untapped market of potential customers eager to partake in your wares and/or services.

Previously located in Louisiana’s “Hub City”, Lafayette, on the I-10 corridor between New Orleans, Louisiana and Houston, MechaCon became immensely popular and outgrew its home city in just five short years. For our sixth annual MechaCon, MechaCon found a new home in New Orleans, Louisiana and is happy to say we are here to stay for our 9th annual convention and beyond. Being a convention held in the “Crescent City”, MechaCon is easily accessible for fans joining us from not only south, central and north Louisiana, but east Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. With confirmed attendees joining us from across the country and even from Mexico and Canada, it is easy to see why MechaCon promises to continue to be a well-attended event from all fronts.

MechaCon continues to grow year after year. Now is your chance to have your name associated with this unique event! Placing an ad in the official MechaCon Program Book will help introduce our attendees to your store, service, business, or company. Even if you cannot attend the event, ads are a great way to show support for our local effort. Your business need not be local, although while in town many MechaCon attendees travel to various businesses represented in the program book just to see places of interest while in New Orleans. They want to shop, eat in restaurants, and do things they can only do here in New Orleans. Local fans learn about businesses new to them in their own neighborhoods, and can become loyal repeat customers. Some become mail order customers, once they are made aware of your goods or services.
