This is the place where you can explore booths from the hottest K-Beauty brands to the tastiest Korean Food vendors and even interactive spaces around dance, music, and movies. But, that’s just one facet. You can also watch live performances and artist interviews on our KCON Stage, and learn the dances of your favorite lineup artists at our Dance Workshops.


Do really enjoy discussing your love of Korean music, fashion, beauty, dramas, culture, and more? Or, are you new to “hallyu”? Our panels and workshops may be just the place for you. Want to know about how K-Pop is made? Our panels welcome industry experts like K-Pop music makers Andreas Oberg and David Amber to give you an insider look.


Dance workshops are a KCON classic and ultimate convention fan favorite. Get concert-ready and learn each lineup artist’s latest hit dance from some of the biggest names in dance like 1MILLION, GoToe and Ellen and Brian. Each day, thousands of fans join us to dance from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. so let loose and have fun!


KCON’s pre-event dance party! Typically, on the evening of pre-registration we invite our attendees to a party featuring performances from local artists and influencers. Stay tuned for updates!


This brand new, yet already KCON fan-favorite program, stars the brightest rookies in the K-Pop galaxy as they tempt you to fall into their fandom. Last year, we welcomed LOONA, AB6IX, and ATEEZ. This year, will you take the plunge into the rookie-verse?


Meet your favorite stars up close with KCON’s artist engagements. Each session is a little different, but to give you a general idea, artist engagement sessions include a Q&A, game time, and culminate in a hi-touch! Session components vary by artist and access varies by your choice of artist engagement package. Read on to learn more about artist engagement and who we’ve welcomed over the years.


Are you a big fan of one (or more!) of our KCON lineup artists? Head to our fan club meeting rooms to meet fans like yourself and participate in activities for your favorite artist’s session.


If panels are about discussing your passions, workshops are about living out your passions. Through interactive workshops like “Decorate your own KCON fansign,” “Make your own KCON embroidered patch,” and “KCON Paint Nite,” we invite you to bring your friends and family to create your own unique KCON experience.


You may think of a “KCON Stage” as our evening M COUNTDOWN concerts, but our convention has its own stage right in the center of the Expo. What can you see there? Performances and programs featuring some of your favorite artists from the KCON lineup like Star Live Talk!
