Toy and entertainment giant Hasbro today announced the inaugural HASCON, a three day celebration of all things Hasbro to be held September 8 to 10, 2017 at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
The fan and family convention will highlight the entire range of Hasbro’s toy, game, and media properties, including “Transformers,” “My Little Pony,” “NERF,” “Magic The Gathering,” “Play-Doh,” “Monopoly” and of course, “G.I. JOE.”
Details are few for now, but the toymaker promises “three unforgettable days featuring a celebration of Hasbro's powerful characters and stories, including live interactive experiences, exclusive products, talent appearances, panels and much more.” There will also be Hasbro Gaming on-site competitions and first look previews of Hasbro's biggest film and television properties.
“Hasbro is home to many of the world’s most recognizable brands, each of them with their own group of passionate and engaged fans,” said Hasbro Brands President, John Frascotti. “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.”
