What is MAICon?
MAICon, or ‘Miniature AICon’, is a one day mini convention run in Launceston. It is a condensed version of AICon featuring some of our most popular events such as the Cosplay Competition and Fruits Fashion, as well as some brand new exclusives! Much like AICon events and activities include competitions, a trader’s hall, the ever popular auction, the art room and a miniaturised games room among other things! As always, cosplay is a popular activity (though obviously not required). The theme for MAICon this year is ‘Around the World’!

Do I have to dress in theme?
No, the theme is just a fun little add-on and it is not a requirement for entry in any of our competitions – however, if you’re interested in our theme specific categories in competitions such as cosplay, you must be dressed in theme to enter those categories. Otherwise, it’s free for all!

Will food and drink be available?
Yes, both food and drink will be available at MAICon. There will be a general canteen and the return of the MAICon Maid Cafe! More details of exactly what will be available will be released closer to the convention date.
