MomoCon is the largest gaming convention in the Southeast United States. Our 13th year will take place May 25th - 28th in Atlanta, Georgia, where more than 30,000 (unique) or 75,000 (turnstile) attendance is expected.  The 3rd Indie Game Awards showcase will take place on Saturday, May 27th, and be streamed live on Twitch.  At this time we can only review games on PC, Mac, Android, Xbox One, PS4 or iOS and are unable to review VR game titles.

Finalists in our showcase are invited to exhibit at our event at no additional cost, but those interested in exhibiting can purchase a 10 x 10 area (power and internet included) for $450 in our 190,000 sq. ft. Gaming Hall (the 2nd largest gaming hall in the country).  If you purchase a booth and are chosen as a finalist, the booth fee will be fully refunded.  You can register for a booth at MomoCon 2017 here.
