MegaCon 2017 - Recap and Observations

MegaCon 2017 delivered its annual deluge of fandom insanity over four action-packed days, May 25-28 at Orlando's Orange County Convention Center. A festival of fun and fantasy - this year's event was speckled with memorable highlights, incredible encounters, and uniquely diverse talent. It was also a year for change, with many notable differences in the event's processes, presentation, and staffing procedures. One thing that remains consistent - MegaCon is never a disappointment. 

If you asked multiple people to explain the appeal of MegaCon, you'd likely get vastly different descriptions from each of them. The ComeSeeOrlando staff is a prime example. Though three of us consider MegaCon a must-do event, none of us agree on our favorite aspect - nor do we share common goals or expectations for our time there. When an event packs such a colossal punch, it's not much of a challenge to find something you'll enjoy. What you discover may surprise you! We've pinpointed our "Mega-motivators"... what are yours?
