we’re excited to announce the next MondoCon will be September 14 & 15, 2019 at the Palmer Events Center in Downtown Austin!

Every year, when we sit down to discuss how to make the next MondoCon better than the last, we consider everything and read all your feedback -- what went well, what could be improved, the venue flow, the time of the year, and so on. The convention has grown and changed over the last four years, and finding a permanent home in Austin has always been a challenge. We’re so excited to be at the Palmer Events Center with more exhibiting space (and everyone under one roof), a designated panel room upstairs, and an incredible location overlooking Austin’s Lady Bird Lake.

Though we’re taking a short hiatus and won't be hosting MondoCon in 2018, the new location and additional time will allow us to make MC5 the best one yet.

We’ll be announcing ticket sale dates, exhibitor line-up, etc., before the end of the year, so be sure to sign up for our MondoCon newsletter to stay up-to-date. Thank you again for building this amazing community and convention with us. We’re excited for what’s to come!

It's nice that it will be at Palmer Events Center. That is a little nicer venue than previous years (although, I didn't attend last year, which was a different venue than previous years). I went to go see if I missed tickets again this year. On the bright side, I am super early!

That's the right way to think about it :)

Would love to go to this, and to the area in general. I've always heard great things about Austin.

My son has a friend who lives in Austin who has said I can stay with him if I come to Austin, and I love Mondo, so next year I will make a sincere attempt to go.

I'm really excited about MondoCon this year! This will be my first time.

I'm going to get there a couple of days early and probably line up on Friday night.

Hopefully I will see the regular tickets when they go on sale. We only do Saturday, so we didn't go for the early bird tickets. Last time, I kept meaning to get tickets, and then they were sold out. My husband is keeping an eye on it for me.

how fast did they sell out of the early bird tix?

In less than an hour. I checked inventory when they initially went up for early bird and they had around 250 listed, so it’s possibly they only had about 500 available  for EB tickets.

But how quick the regular tickets will sell out seems to be the big question everyone is asking them. I haven’t been to the Palmer center but from my understanding capacity is a couple thousand and they do SXSW stuff there so it’s a good size venue.

That being said, if they have inventory set up like they did for EB tickets - I’ll see if I can monitor how quick they are going and post an update tomorrow afternoon.

One of these days I hope to attend MondoCon, but I must prepare my wallet ahead of time, lol.
