Press release:
ATLANTA – June 29, 2022.
MomoCon 2022 was the most attended in the show’s history, with 42,000 gamers, animation fans, and cosplayers filling the Georgia World Congress Center for the largest gaming convention in the Southeast United States from May 26-29, 2022.

MomoCon 2022 was the first event taking place in the traditional Memorial Day Weekend window since 2019, when organizers skipped two regularly-scheduled events for the health and safety of the community. Despite this extended absence, fans came roaring back, breaking the show’s previous attendance record.

Many special guests helped make this record possible, as the four-day event featured many luminaries from the gaming and animation communities. Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario and Luigi since 1992, hosted a panel where fans got to see the voice behind two of gaming’s most iconic characters. Fans also got to meet Steve Downes (Halo’s Master Chief) and Jen Taylor (Halo’s Cortana in the games and TV series, RWBY’s Salem), and more.

Fans of both western and eastern animation got to meet some of the talent behind their favorite series. The voices of Avatar: The Last Airbender brought more than 2,000 fans together to celebrate the franchise ahead of the reveal of the three upcoming films. Greg Baldwin also hosted his own panel, “Tea with Uncle Iroh”, welcoming another 2,000 excited fans ready to get some one-on-one time with their beloved Uncle.

Fans also got to hear from and take part in Q&A sessions with cast members from beloved series like My Hero Academia, Teen Titans, Samurai Jack, and more. Attendees also had the chance to meet Bill Farmer, the iconic voice of Disney’s Goofy since 1987.

MomoCon hosted a variety of competitive gaming tournaments across Memorial Day weekend, including a $5,000 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament. Along with other gaming tournaments, fans took in high-flying Stranglehold Championship Wrestling matches, melodic tunes in the Disney Singing Contest Finale, indie game showcases, and the return of MomoCon’s Friday night cosplay showcase.

“It was amazing being able to bring back MomoCon and have such a tremendous turnout,” said Jess Merriman, co-founder of MomoCon.

“Seeing everyone apart of our tight-knit community have the opportunity to reconnect in person reminded us why we are so passionate about MomoCon. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back in 2023 and expanding to even greater horizons!”
