Our team is ready to assist you

From questions about whether a costume or prop is ok, all the way through assistance in securing a merchant booth at METROCON, our staff is ready to help. Just send us an e-mail, and we’ll be in touch as soon as we possibly can. We don’t want to hide behind some generic form e-mail – we want you to get to know us, and to learn about just a FEW of the 100+ staff and volunteers behind the show.
