Every year we open up our events schedule for our community to get the chance to run informative and fun panels about their favorite geeky topics!

At Daisho Con, panels can include more than speaker-driven lectures. We’re open to hearing about all sorts of gatherings and interactive activities! In the past, we’ve had panels that have done anime-themed game shows, art tutorials, game demos, and much, much more! The possibilities are endless… if you have an event you want to run, let us know!
