We’re Heading to Geek.kon 2018!

The twelfth Geek.kon just outside Madison, WI is upon us, and the No Brand Con Road Show is going to be there with bells on! Okay, maybe not with bells… but at least pants?

We will totally be wearing pants!

As always, you can find our team in the Ambassador Alley this weekend (Aug 24-26), where you can preregister for our $20 road show rate. We’re excited to see everyone who might stop by, and we think it’s going to be a pretty great time!

Find Us at Kitsune Kon this Weekend (and Sponsor Registration is Now Open)!

No Brand Con staff is hitting the road again, this time to Kitsune Kon in Green Bay! We’ll be there today, Saturday and Sunday in the Ambassador Alley ready to take your preregistration for No Brand Con 2019. As always, this will be at our Road Show Rate of only $20, which is the best price you’ll ever find for our weekend badges.

We really hope to see you there!

We’ve also now opened registration for Sponsorships for No Brand Con 2019. While we love all of our attendees, when you become a sponsor you get access to the No Brand Con VIP treatment. Benefits of sponsorship include early access to the vendor room, an exclusive meet and greet session with our guests, a gift bag of No Brand Con goodies (including this year’s shirt), priority seating at major events, and more! Sponsorships cost $85 and, as always, are limited to just twenty-five.

But, honestly, whether you opt for our most expensive or cheapest membership options, we’re just excited that you’ll be coming this March.

This Weekend Find Our Table at Anime Central (And 2019 Preregistration Opens!)

We know it’ll have been just two weeks since No Brand Con 2018, but we’re hitting the road to promote No Brand Con 2019 already!

That’s right, we’re going to Anime Central in Rosemont, IL. You’ll be able to find us in the vendor room at booth CT05 in the visiting convention section!


Now as many of you know, we always bring our lower roadshow preregistration rate when we go to other cons, but because this is how we’re opening the doors for No Brand Con 2019 — we’re going to offer it to everyone.

That’s right, not only will preregistration open on Friday morning, but through the weekend we’ll be offering it for just $20! That’s ten dollars off the normal online price, and the best deal you’ll find for a weekend badge. All you’ll have to do is head over to our preregistration page and take advantage of the amazing deal Friday through Sunday!

Thanks For A Great No Brand Con 2018!

We had an amazing No Brand Con 2018, and we hope you enjoyed it too! We had some great guests, a ton of fun, and as always our attendees remain some of the most awesome and fun(n) people around.

We know it’s hard to come down from the excitement, but if you came to the con this year, please consider filling out our No Brand Con 2018 Attendee Survey. We’re always trying to make the convention better, and we want to know what your thoughts were about how we did and how we can make next year even more amazing.

Speaking of next year, it’s coming sooner than you’d thing! We’re excited to announce that No Brand Con will return to the Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells a bit earlier next year — March 29th-31st 2019.

Get that down in your calendars, because it’s going to be a blast!

Check Out the Full Program Guide For No Brand Con 2018!

No Brand Con 2018 starts tomorrow, so we’ve decided to put the No Brand Con 2018 Program Guide online! Inside you’ll find everything you expect — guest bios, panel descriptions, a map of the convention center, and of course an arcane puzzle based around the mechanics of goblin traps.

You think we’re kidding, but we’re not.

And remember, if you still want the slimmed down version, you can always just load up our basic schedule on Google Sheets instead. Either way, the fun starts tomorrow!

Are You Ready To Hit The Dance Floor at No Brand Con 2018?

No Brand Con 2018 is just a couple days away, and we’re super excited. Two of the events we’re excited about the most are our dances! Held on Friday and Saturday night at 10pm, both are hosted by X-Geek Media and will feature the Pepperann Hit Squad. They’ll feature an amazing lineup of DJs and are going to be a ton of fun.

Check out the official poster for more information, and we hope to see you there!


Announcing the No Brand Con Discord Channel!

No Brand Con 2018 is just a few days away, and we’re excited to announce a new way that you can connect with both our staff and your fellow attendees! Introducing the No Brand Con Discord server!

Using the Discord App on your smartphone or computer, you can communicate in real time with us and your friends at the convention. Just follow our invite link and get started!

Volunteer for No Brand Con 2018!

Want to get reimbursed for your No Brand Con badge, so the convention becomes effectively free to attend? If you dedicate ten hours over the course of the weekend to the con and join our volunteer team, that’s exactly what will happen!

One of the best things about No Brand Con is that it’s run by fans like you, and as we’re an event completely driven by people donating their time, it’s a great way to feel a part of it.

To find out more information, check our our Volunteer manual. If you decided that you’re interested, just fill out a 2018 volunteer application and email it to! You won’t regret it.

No Brand Con Presents “The Quest” Part Three

The No Brand Heroes continue on their quest to find the missing Duct Tape Boy. Hoping that Cardboard Commando might know of his whereabouts, the Gardening Ninja, Magical Girl Girl, Greenboy, and (apparently) Yarn have arrived at his last known location.

Things… things don’t go well.
