  • This was my very first time attending MetroCon, and I had a really wonderful time. Some of the panels/events I really enjoyed were: the Superhero Comedy & Stunt Show (which I went to see both on Thurs. and Sat. nights), Rhythm City Chronicles, seeing both Geekapella and Noise Complaint, the Death Note panel, the J-Rock Is Not Dead panel, the Disney Sing-A-Long, and MANY others!! 😀 😀 I also had a ball dancing several times where someone was playing music on both Fri. & Sat. on the first floor of the convention center. I am looking forward to next year, and I'm so happy I went this year. 🙂

  • This is an extremely well-done convention! The staff and security take their jobs and any issues that guests may have seriously. There are so many wonderful activities and panels that you can do! If you're attending the con, always, ALWAYS see the fire show!

  • "Best con in Florida, period. Friendly staff and environment, great events, and top-notch special guests."

    Joshua F. Attendee
  • “One of the most organized and well-staffed cons I've been to. Never had a problem and the con staff was always professional. The artist alley staff are always on point and don't belittle the artists or try to abuse their position. They make sure we are taken care of year after year. :)”
