MondoCon is a convention just like this, except it has a much friendlier atmosphere and is less expensive! An unnamed but well traveled guest introducing us to her friend

Welcome to MondoCon!

MondoCon is the biggest geek convention in Hungary (perhaps the biggest in the region) which we organize each Spring, Summer and Autumn – each convention being one weekend long.

On a busy day we have more than 10,000 visitors and we place a lot of emphasis on community building. We take pride in the fact that our convention is known for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The first MondoCon was held in 2008 and back then it was a manga/anime convention. We remained true to our roots and manga/anime fandom is still one of the cornerstones of our events. But if you are not interested in that, don’t worry! Over the years our convention embraced all things geek! (Should we say assimilated? 🖖) We have cartoons, fantasy, scifi and tv show fandoms all covered, and a large section dedicated to videogames and esports as well. And we must mention cosplay, because it is quite a big thing at MondoCon. Around a third of our visitors arrive in some sort of cosplay: from simple nekomimi and naruto-headbands to award-winning masterpieces, you will see a thousand different cosplays.

Our conventions have an undiminished popularity so we decided to open up to international visitors. Our main competitions were always open to everyone and recently we started to add english language panels and presentations as well.

So come and visit us! ūüôā

The next convention will be
on 22-23rd of October, 2022
in Budapest – Hungexpo

With over 50% of the population vaccinated, the government has eased the restrictions and we can finally meet again (in person) at a convention!

There is a silver lining to everything, including the Covid pandemic. It gave us time to focus on producing online content for our fans. We publish our Mondoconline videos on a weekly bases, and they are growing in popularity.
