DesignerCon 2018 @ Anaheim Convention Center (Nov 16-18)

Currently a 3-Day extravaganza nearly triple in size, this has become one of the key events (in the West) where folks from around the folks would go to to embrace the art toy and pop / designer culture, sans the onslaught of "media licenses" that currently overwhelms popular events like San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con.
