In the wake of the success of Hasbro's inaugural fan-centric event this year, the toymaker has confirmed Hascon will ride again next year from 6-9 September at the Dunkin’ Donuts Rhode Island Convention Centre.
The first Hascon event offered fans families and fans of all ages a new way to experience its brands, and a behind-the-scenes pass to the world of Hasbro over three days of hands-on brand experiences, meet-and-greets, sneak-peeks, concerts, star-studded panels and fan-centric surprises.
Among the celebrities, athletes and influencers on hand at the Con were Mark Wahlberg, Stan Lee, David Ortiz, James White, Dude Perfect, Maddie Ziegler, James Gunn, Zach King, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, and Isabela Moner.
Flo Rida and Daya performed and attendees were 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.
“We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve received from our inaugural Hascon event,” John Frascotti, Hasbro president said. “We’re looking forward to once again delivering immersive entertainment experiences around our brands for fans and families in 2019.”
