- Panelist Referral Program
Do you take your panels to quite a few different conventions each year? Here’s how you can get free Midoricon badges by giving us a brief shout out to your audience!
- Official Midoricon Facebook Rooms & Rides Group
Do you need crash space? Are you offering crash space? How about a ride? This is the place to meet others who can help! Join to post about any accommodations you want to offer or may need, and/or split travel expenses by carpooling (it's good for our sweet earth, too).
- Maumee Bay Campgrounds
If camping out under the stars is more your speed, we've got great news for you! The campgrounds are great for late night conversation and Anime-themed acoustic serenades over bonfires. The grounds are super affordable, and investing in a tent is a great idea for future years at Midoricon.
- Midoricon Cosplay Swap & Marketplace
Do you have a used cosplay you'd consider trading for another? Or maybe you just want to sell or buy a costume. Our marketplace also includes accessories like rave gear, steampunk accessories and EGL wear.
