We read your surveys and here are some of the changes

This year we received a record number of surveys and though it took us a while we got through them. We’re overjoyed with how positive the vast majority of them were but that doesn’t mean we don’t have areas that could use some improvements. We saw a few trends emerge as we reviewed them that has helped us focus on some of the areas that would benefit the most from a little TLC. Click "Read More" for more details

A letter from Hino

I was honored to be asked back in 2015 to become the Megaplex Chairman and after 4 amazing years I am shocked at how far it’s come in such a short time. With this year’s Megaplex having surpassed 3600 attendees and raising an astounding $40,000 for C.A.R.E. I couldn’t be prouder of what our convention leadership, staff and volunteers have been able to provide Central Florida Yet, it’s not just those that work the convention that have made it what it is as we provide a place for the fun to happen - the attendees are integral and some of the most amazing and caring people I've met.

With this year’s con behind us I would like to announce that one of my fellow Board Members will be taking over the reigns as Megaplex Chairman while I take a lesser role to give me time to provide better focus on my personal life. I will still remain a board member and Vice President of Florida United Furry Fandom Inc., Megaplex’s parent company.

So, with that said, I would like to welcome Scooby as the 2020 Megaplex Chairman. His dedication to the convention and its attendees over the past few years has been exemplary and I am sure that with his leadership Megaplex will continue to get even better as we continue to provide our attendees with the best experience we can.

Sincerely,

Hino

2019 Megaplex Chairman
