Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The title is not a typo: the next iteration of the Hasbro-run event that brings together all their franchises under one roof in their own backyard will not be back for another year - but it will be back! Taking place in Providence again, Hascon will return on September, 6-8 2019. You can find out the whole information we have so far in the press release below, and revisit our Hascon 2017 coverage through our galleries and stories!

Hasbro Announces Dates for 2019 HASCON Event

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.

It was said when Hascon was first rumored that they might be looking at growing yo something the size and scope of Star Wars Celebration. It also is not held every year.

Same location, same time of (school) year, and skipping 2018 in favor of a biannual venue.

They just dont learn, do they?

In my opinion not doing it yearly is a sign that it was a semi-fail but they refuse to throw in the towel. I saw the videos online made by the non TF community and I didnt see a whole lot of multi-franchise love like Hasbro corporate believes exist.

If it's Q3 2019 then I doubt the figures will be POTP. More than likely we'll be halfway through or just starting the next Generations line by then.
