Featuring 9 unique designs inspired by 80s and 90s retro video games, each one is a collectible, kicking off the unique experience from the moment fans check-in.
With badges in hand, fans have a world in store for them bringing all new content and fan-favorite artists. Beginning with VIP Night, Presented by eBay, select attendees will be a part of the night frenzy with special programming, including a highly sought after “DCON x eBay VIP Box” which will feature special merch only available to VIP holders, and an exclusive MEDICOM TOY BE@RBRICK release featuring artist King Saladeen.

Founded in 2005 by Ben Goretsky, DesignerCon brings together artists, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in the designer toy/ vinyl collectibles market and has grown to incorporate everything in the design world including apparel, plush, printing, sculpture, designer toys, and both fine and urban art. The steady growth DesignerCon has enjoyed correlates with its popularity in today’s art nerd, geek culture; collectors and designer toy lovers alike wait through the night for new releases, pre-orders for new artist collaboration apparel are sold out within minutes, and artists use the convention as an opportunity to announce exclusive releases and collaborations. www.designercon.com
