What is AVCon?

AVCon is an annual celebration of Japanese animation, video gaming, tabletop gaming, esports, game development, art, technology, and cosplay all in the heart of Adelaide – the capital of South Australia!

AVCon is run by Team AVCon Inc, a not-for-profit volunteer organisation dedicated to serving the local South Australian community and organising various anime and gaming themed events. These events are geared towards hobbyists, professionals, and the general public; meaning no matter your skill level or need, we have you covered! Because AVCon is a not-for-profit organisation, all funds generated are used exclusively for making AVCon a better event year after year while also holding other smaller events and promoting local content.

AVCon has been running for 21 years and has built a lasting legacy within South Australia and stands as one of the pillars of pop culture celebration on the Australian calendar. Because of its long lasting success, AVCon has developed a sterling reputation and is respected nationwide in multiple industries and communities.

AVCon is committed to fostering local and interstate talent in fields such as game development, digital productions, writing, art and design, sewing and construction and other creative outlets such as streaming and podcasting.

AVCon appeals to and is attended by males and females in equal measure, with another large segment of our attendees identifying as non-binary or genderfluid.

40% of AVCon attendees fall into the 18 to 24 age range and another 40% fall into the 25 to 34 bracket meaning AVCon has solid appeal to the younger demographics who make up the largest share of consumers spending money on pop culture related products and services.

AVCon is a family-friendly event that offers free entry to children under 10 and targets content directly at young fans to foster a lifelong love of AVCon and pop culture. Feedback from previous years indicate that AVCon resonates with and is well regarded by the family demographic.

Artists and Creators

AVCon boasts one of the largest ‘Artist Alleys’ in the country and due to its 21-year history, has developed a reputation for being one of the premiere events for consumers to find unique and exciting creations from the talented individuals that AVCon attracts.

AVCon staff participate in and take feedback from the artist community to continually make improvements to the operation of Artist Alley, which has resulted in sustained praise from participants and AVCon attendees year after year. AVCon also offers many perks to help promote individual creators on our social media platforms and or ways to work with us on specialised events and projects.

AVCon has aimed to keep the running costs of attending Artist Alley competitive in comparison to other events, and feedback from previous stallholders has consistently stated that proactive effort in doing business at AVCon has yielded sales on par with larger events in Sydney or Melbourne.
