Find Cons

Benjamin Santos

Greetings! I'm Benjamin Santos and I am the founder of Cosplay Convention Center. I began attending conventions about 9 years ago and like many of you, discovered a passion for them and the community I discovered. The combination of talented individuals paired with the welcoming, fun atmosphere instantly made me want to attend more & more events.

Like many of you who have ventured into attending multiple conventions, whether for fun or for business, I heard a common observation from everyone I spoke with; It should be easier to find events. Event Organizers, attendees & Industry Professionals all shared a common problem. Solving this problem is what brought Cosplay Convention Center into existence.

A simple to use, accurate, mobile friendly site. One Site to Find Them All - Cosplay Convention Center was officially launched on February 29th of 2016. To date we have helped over 132,000 and counting people discover over 3000 conventions to attend.

Gerry Shannon and I are the two-man team behind it but we are backed by an amazingly supportive and diverse group of individuals who are directly involved in the convention eco system at all levels. The input they have provided us on the project has made the site what it is today. I hope you enjoy using the site to discover conventions as well as the Industry Professionals who attend them. There are over 30 different themes to help you discover the conventions you want to attend. Welcome to Cosplay Convention Center - Conventions are Waiting!

The database manager and webmaster who turns my concepts into digital reality. Gerry and I met in November of 2015 when we were introduced by a mutual friend. Over the course of lunch he became hooked on the idea of Cosplay Convention Center. It is a true joy collaborating with him on this project. His contributions on the back and front end have helped mold the site into what it is today. Many a night we found ourselves awake talking on the phone while tweaking the site and realizing it was the early hours and sleep might be needed.
