MondoCon

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.

The next MondoCon is on the 7th-8th of October.

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! :)

Further Information

Getting here

MondoCon takes place at the Hungexpo, the biggest convention center in Hungary. You can find detailed information on how can you travel to the venue here.

Buying tickets

MondoCon ticket is 3800 HUF (~ 13 €) for the whole weekend, or 3500 HUF if you buy an early bird ticket. You can buy them right at the entrance, just don’t forget to bring Hungarian Forints in cash with you.

Buying tickets online is only available if you can pay in HUF. Please be aware that if you send from a non-HUF account the extra cost paid to the bank can easily be more than the whole price of the ticket. In that case we recommend buying your tickets on-site. Don’t worry, even in the rare event of the tickets being sold out, we always have tickets set aside for international visitors.

Accomodations in Budapest

You can find the list of our partner hostels here. These are situated in the “party” district of Budapest, so we run a free shuttle bus between the Convention and these hostels on saturday evening and sunday morning.

The Expo Hotel is a 4 star hotel situated right next to the convention center (just as you guessed by its name) which makes it a very convenient.

You can easily find any kind of accomodation in Budapest from hotels and hostels to airbnb appartments. Prices vary seasonably.
