There is a lot to do at Marcon every year. Some features may disappear for a year or two and return, and some new ideas will show up from time to time.

Below are just a handful of the things that you can expect at Marcon 54 this year at the Crowne Plaza Columbus North in Worthington, Ohio.

  • More concentrated convention space, all located on one floor, and closer to the hotel rooms than at our previous location.
