My first EXPCon was seven years ago in 2010. At first, it wasn’t a particularly memorable convention, but I had a good enough time that I went back the following year, and even brought a friend along with me. It was that year, in 2011, and consequently, the convention’s last consecutive year, that I fell in love with EXPCon.
I have been attending conventions for ten years up and down the east coast, and I have yet to find another convention that puts as much dedication, drive, and heart into putting on the best show they can. Ryan Sweat, the con chair, and his staff are some of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. Their passion to provide the best experience possible shows in everything they do. From the late nights and early mornings, to the communication and professionalism, they have it all.
As for the convention itself, this was its first year on the scene after a six-year hiatus, but what a comeback it was! In its new debut, EXPCon was able to boast something no other convention will ever be able to: they were the first to have the entire main cast (and VO Director) of Final Fantasy XV as guests! Yeah, it’s a pretty big deal, but we’ll get to that in a bit.
