What is KupoCon?
KupoCon is simply a Final Fantasy fan event, made by the fans of Final Fantasy. If you have a love for the series, or any of the games that make up the series, you have a home at KupoCon. Our event differs from a typical convention. You’ll feel like you’re surrounded by friends as soon as you arrive. Many describe our event as a giant Final Fantasy themed birthday party!
Where is KupoCon?
KupoCon is a travelling event. We want to try and reach as many fans of the series as possible, so we’ve moved the event around since its inception. We’ve successfully held events in North America and Europe. Use the “Events” tab above to see if there is a KupoCon close to you!
Is this an official Final Fantasy event?
No. KupoCon is a Final Fantasy fan event produced by fans of the series. It is not endorsed, sanctioned or in any other way supported directly or indirectly by Square Enix, and its respected partners. Final Fantasy, characters, names and related indicia are trademarks and copyright of SQUARE ENIX CO., LTD.
Are Square Enix aware of this event?
Yes. After our initial event announcement, we reached out to Square Enix in North America and Europe and explained our intentions in full. We provided them with further information about our event and we’ll continue to keep a dialogue open with them. We respect the company and their brand and we have no intention on doing anything that may cause harm or offence. Many of our events have had Square Enix representatives in attendance.
Where did KupoCon come from?
After seeing how successful small fan gatherings were in parts of Europe, we saw an opportunity to raise the bar and bring it to an entirely new level. We made an announcement for the event online in early 2016 and the project grew rapidly from there. We are very thankful to everyone who has contributed to KupoCon.
Who makes KupoCon?
KupoCon is created by a dedicated team led by an international events organizer. Everyone who works on the project is a fan of the series and a fan of producing these sorts of events. Together using many decades of skills, we’re able to produce a fully-fledged production. You have no concerns when it comes to the quality of the event. Just check out our feedback from attendees.
What about currently established fan events?
Apart from the official Final Fantasy XIV fan fest, and several launch parties, all the other fan gatherings are pretty small. When selecting a KupoCon location we work very hard not to “invade” another territory because we respect the hard work that goes into getting fans together. We obviously don’t want to stand on any toes, so we encourage current organizers of fan gatherings to get in touch.
You call this a fan event and not a convention, why?
Typically KupoCon feels a bit different to a typical convention. We provide a jam-packed schedule which will keep you busy all day. We do have many of the things you expect a convention such as an artist alley and cosplay contests, but you’ll find that KupoCon has a uniqueness to it. Intimate and immersive.
Is this a for-profit event?
The organizing body of KupoCon has no intention to make profit from this event. The production of a KupoCon event is a massive financial undertaking, so we have to charge for tickets. Any funds remaining (if any) will be invested in the following events. In the unlikely event that the project doesn’t continue, we will donate any remaining funds to a good cause.
If the event is cancelled, what happens?
We’ve never cancelled an event, but if we do, we’ll refund your ticket. Promise.
