As someone who has heavily supported the local convention scene in Florida, this is a cool announcement and opportunity that we finally get to share. The new Tampa, FL based convention Lumi-Con will have me as an Industry Guest in October 2018. I will be attending the convention for the entire weekend of Oct. 26th – 28th, hosting panels and checking out all of the festivities alongside everyone in attendance.
For anyone that has followed The Koalition and/or the various content I’ve been part of over the years, this is a great opportunity to meet up and chat about everything related to games and the industry itself.
Lumi-Con is a new Florida based convention that is hosted by groups of individuals with over 15 years experience hosting events. In the past, I’ve covered many events they’ve been involved with, including conventions such as Shadocon and Holiday Matsuri.
With Lumi-Con, the staff plan on having a Halloween themed experience filled with different events that gamers and anime fans will enjoy, including some fan favorites like the highly popular Final Fantasy Ball. Other guests scheduled to appear at the convention include Final Fantasy XV Noctis voice actor Ray Chase, and cosplay guest Bailey Vea.
However, things are going to be different for me this time, now that I’m going to be a guest for the convention itself. I plan on hosting a combination panels for everyone about gaming, working in the games industry, and other fun surprises. You can definitely expect coverage from the event here on The Koalition, including the galleries we post and videos, while we’re out there.
If you ever wanted to know more about what we do here at The Koalition or simply want to meet to say hello, you can find all the details about Lumi-Con on their official website. There’s even a profile page about me being a guest with some extra info that you may or may not already know!
