History of GAMMA.CON
GAMMA.CON runs for the first time at the Manning Clark Centre at the Australian National University campus. The one-day event attracts 250 attendees and features a cosplay comp, a small artist alley, screening rooms, an art competition and a quiz.
We move to the Hellenic Club and introduces a panel room, a stage for live acts and a dedicated video games room for tournaments and locally developed games. Special guests include Katsyuka Moonfox (cosplay model), Andy Trieu from Pop Asia and Goose from ABC’s Good Game TV show.
GAMMA.CON again expands to cover a full weekend and relocates to the Australian Institute of Sports Arena, offering more floor space and more rooms for workshops, panels and other side events.
A showcase of comic book guests is added to the program along with GAMMA@Night; an 18+ evening event on the Saturday with geek-themed drinks, mature-themed movies and stage shows.
The first-ever year Gamma went rural with cosplay guest Hayley Elise. GAMMA.CON brought pop culture to Wagga with over 500 attendees, along with Gamma@Night and +18 evening events.
