Because it’s looking increasingly likely that the convention center may still be closed, and the restrictions on large gatherings may still be in place by May 9th, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Tiger Con yet again. Our new date is August 22-23rd. Nothing else has changed but the date so far. Keep checking our pages on Facebook and Instagram for the latest announcements.
March 16, 2020:
Tiger Con has considered the feedback we have received from our attendees, guests, dealers, and artists, as well as the recent CDC guidelines and our personal feelings that we have an obligation to protect the community. Because of these factors, we’ve decided to reschedule. We have reached a deal with the convention center that will allow us to move Tiger Con back a couple of months until this situation has hopefully passed.
Our new date will be May 9-10, 2020. We do not yet know how this will affect our schedule of events, because most of our panels, etc. are hosted by volunteers. We will try our best to keep everything the same, from guests to the concert to the Maid Café. Please refrain from bombarding us with inquiries about programming changes. We will announce any changes as soon as we can.
Hopefully all of this will have blown over by then, nevertheless the convention center staff have installed a new ozone filtration unit on their air handlers and their staff are instituting a robust cleaning and disinfecting regimen for the facility. There will also be plenty of hand sanitizer available all around the convention center for attendee use.
All tickets which have been purchased, as well as all dealer booths and artist alley tables will remain valid for the new dates. We understand that some attendees and vendors will not be able to make it on the new date. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if that is the case.
Thank you for understanding. We know this is a difficult time for everyone involved. Your support is much appreciated!

The Tiger Con Mascot Art Contest is in full swing! In exchange for allowing us to use your art to promote Tiger Con, the winners will receive a free weekend pass to Tiger Con II and be credited in the program guide! Just submit your art of our mascot to email@example.com. Remember, she should have aged about five years since last Tiger Con, so make her in her mid teens. Submissions are due by 10 August. Three winners will be selected and announced on 12 August.

Tiger Con II has been given the green light. The official date will be April 13-14, 2019 at the same great location, the Holiday Inn Conference Center. The Holiday Inn staff were so helpful, and the restaurant was the perfect location for our Maid Cafe that we just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to return for a second year!
Tiger Con has come and gone. The staff would like to thank everyone who participated, especially our guests and volunteers! The final count for people at the con is 417! That includes volunteers and artists/dealers. Without the artists, dealers and volunteers, there were still 375 attendees! Not bad for a first year con. We are currently planning next year’s Tiger Con. Keep checking here and our Instagram and Facebook page for announcements such as the date and guest lineup! See you in 2019!
Holiday Inn Conference Center offers a special group rate to our attendees who are staying at the convention! You can get your room for $98 per night instead of the regular $138, but they cannot guarantee those rooms will be available after Friday April 6th! If you plan to stay at the convention hotel, please make your reservations soon. After the 6th, there may be rooms available, but we can’t make any promises.

Happy New Year everybody! We’ve got a big announcement for you!
The best way to support Tiger Con is by pre-registering! We use the money for all those up-front costs associated with the con, like the venue, airfare for the guests, etc. In appreciation for our attendees who pre-register, we are reducing the pre-reg ticket prices by $5 for all passes, including VIP! Weekend will now be $30, Saturday will now be $20, and Sunday will be $15. And as always, military and first responders get 25% off! VIP tickets are now $70 and include head of line privileges, a Tiger Con challenge coin, and dinner with the guests of honor! Sorry, no military discount on VIP badges since it has to cover the price of your dinner. Thanks for your support and see you at Tiger Con!

Lots of info to share. We regret to inform our attendees that Cristina Vee will no longer be a guest at Tiger Con, however, voice actress Monica Rial is now on the guest list. Also, the Tiger Con Challenge Coins are in and will be offered for sale on this website as soon as we can set the system up. Also, VIP ticket holders will receive one of the challenge coins when they pick up their badges.
