Hey readers (anyone still out there?)
The news came out last week, but ICYMI, HasCon 2018 dates are announced!
Second-Ever HASCON FANmily Event Scheduled for Sept. 6 – 8, 2019 in Providence, R.I.
PAWTUCKET, R.I. – Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) today announced that it will host its second-ever
HASCON event Sept. 6 – 8, 2019, in Providence, R.I. at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin’Donuts Center.
Hasbro hosted its inaugural HASCON event this past September, offering families and fans of all ages a completely new way to experience its brands, and a behind-the- scenes pass to the world of Hasbro. The event featured three days of hands-on brand experiences, meet-and- greets, sneak peeks, concerts, exclusive reveals, star-studded panels and fan-centric surprises.
“We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve received from our inaugural HASCON event,” said
John Frascotti, president, Hasbro, Inc. “We’re looking forward to once again delivering immersive
entertainment experiences around our brands for fans and families in 2019.”
The 2017 event featured dozens of meet-and- greet opportunities with celebrities, athletes and
influencers, including Mark Wahlberg, Stan Lee, David Ortiz, James White, Dude Perfect, Maddie Ziegler, James Gunn, Zach King, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, and Isabela Moner, among others. Concerts by Flo Rida and Daya were included with the purchase of a general admission HASCON ticket. Guests were also invited to audition for a Hasbro video, and to select a toy or game to donate to the Marine Toys for Tots for children impacted by recent hurricanes.
More details about the 2019 HASCON event, including information about ticket packages, will be posted on http://hascon.hasbro.com.
Here’s a video of last year’s trailer:
I missed out on it this year, hopefully I will be in attendance for the 2nd one. The Kronos and a slew of other upcoming Nerf blasters were announced, so it’s definitely a show to watch for! There’s something to be said about the trade shows for sure, but it’s a little different when the brand themselves put on their own show that gives you a direct line to the brand masterminds themselves.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween! I haven’t been posting here as often as I would have liked, but you can still find me on social media!
