Featured Panelist: Action Arcade

Please welcome returning featured panelists, Action Arcade!

Action Arcade is a group of (by no means professional) gamers who got their start at the first Ring of Fire convention in 2014. They take games and find different ways to play them, sometimes painful, oftentimes hilarious. They do speed runs, card games, tag team gaming, finding weird games to stream, and their signature in competitive gaming: Cutthroat Gaming. Come out and watch as this group of gamers torture themselves for your entertainment!

Location: Book your hotel!

So you have decided to come to NekoCon and you are thinking, “Man I really don’t want to drive back and forth between home and the convention center every day. I wonder if there is a place I can crash at that’s close by?” Well fear not for we have arranged for awesome rates!

Reservation links are now live for the Embassy Suites Hampton Roads (our main hotel) and the Courtyard by Marriott Hampton for NekoCon 20!

The special room rate will be available until October 4, or until the group block sells out, whichever comes first. Act fast, because the hotel sells out fast! We will be adding additional room blocks as they become available.

Thank you and see you for NekoCon 20!
