News: 2018!!!

Booths for the 2018 Tricon are now up for sale. There is a limited amount available so grab yours as soon as possible. You can register HERE. Here are a few simple things to help you register…

Placement is based by when you submit. There are circumstances that may alter this (request for placement by people or previous exhibitors/vendors who request specific locations and so on).

Exhibitor space is reserved for creators this year. If you are an artist, painter, colorist, letterer, writer, sculptor and so on you qualify for an exhibitor booth. Everyone else can buy a vendor booth. If you have any questions please email us (info@tristatecon.net).

This year if you have a display it can be no higher that 12ft; that is two feet above the pipe and drape. Anyone with a display of 12ft will be placed along the walls so they do not overshadow the creators/vendors without the high rise. Please let us know if you will be displaying at this height.

Thank you and we look forward to Tricon 2018!

News: Cosplay Policy

With recent events in Phoenix we will be adjusting our cosplay policy regarding prop guns.

We will not be banning prop weapons but before you enter the venue you will be required to show all prop weapons to Tricon staff. We will band them and then you are allowed to enter the building. These bands must remain on the weapons at all times. If we find an unchecked weapon or one that the band has been removed, you will be asked to remove the prop from the building.

We want this show to be an enjoyable experience for all our fans but we want it to be safe as well. The safety of our guest, exhibitors, vendors, attendees and staff is very important to us. We want to thank you for your understanding and are excited to see you all again.

If you would like to review the cosplay policy or get your signup sheet for the costume contest, please click this LINK.

Thanks,
Eric and James

News: Costume Contest

There will be a few changes to this year’s costume contest. These changes are aimed at making the experience for all costumed fans even better. We will be breaking judging up into sections so the judges get more time to check out the custom costumes before the final Stage Judging. Here is how things will break down…

11:45- Judging for Group One

12:45- Judging for Group Two

1:45- Judging for Group Three

2:45- Judging for Group Four

3:45- Judging for Group Five

5:00- Stage Judging

When you submit your costume contest form you will be informed of the group you will be in. Each judging group will have more personal time with the judges. At 5PM every contestant will get their time on the stage before the judges hand out their winning choices.

*Group judging will take place at the stage, but not on the stage. Final Stage Judging is where the costumed fans will get their time on stage!

Great News Coming Soon!

With only weeks to go to the big day, Tricon is kicking into high gear!

More news will be happening soon as we release breaking news on a whole range of excellent developments!

Stay tuned!
