HASCON to celebrate all things Hasbro in September 2017

Hasbro has dated its inaugural HASCON fan and family convention for September 2017.

HASCON will be held in Providence at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin Donuts Center from September 8th to 10th, 2017, where attendees can enjoy live interactive experiences, exclusive products, talent appearances, panels and more.

Properties including Transformers, My Little Pony, Nerf, Magic: The Gathering, Play-Doh, Monopoly and GI Joe will be reimagined through stage performances and other opportunities for fans to engage with their favorite characters.

Visitors will have the chance to see first-look previews of Hasbro TV and movie series, attend panels and meet-and-greets with celebrities and creative talent associated with Hasbro brands, take part in Hasbro Gaming competitions and purchase special limited-edition Hasbro products.

“Hasbro is home to many of the world’s most recognisable brands, each of them with their own group of passionate and engaged fans,” said John Frascotti, president of Hasbro Brands.

HASCON will deliver an extraordinary peek behind the curtain of our brands, storytelling, and iconic characters while giving us the opportunity to invite fans and families to our hometown for the most memorable, unified Hasbro experience ever.”
