about this business

DoDeca-Con was established in 2012 by Randy and Toni Taylor, in a effort to bring a local convention back to Columbia, Missouri following a 10 year dry spell. Our first outing with DoDeca-Con can be classified as nothing less than a success. Held in a small arena we managed to bring that big convention feel to a smaller venue. We brought in the 501st Legion, various retailers from around the state, the D20 Girls and many local comic creators. We were able to succeed where others had failed. Our attendees came on Friday and stayed until close on Sunday, because there was always something to do. Including panels, games, demonstrations and a costume contest.

The following year we had to find a bigger location because we knew, from fan response that our humble arena was not going to be big enough. Moving to a hotel convention center, and having learned so much from the previous year, we were able to more than double our attendance in that second year. With returning creators, vendors and fan groups and new friends who joined us in making DoDeca-Con 2: The Revenge an even bigger success.

After taking a year off, we are returning in 2015 and BIGGER, BETTER, STRONGER and IN 3D!

As organizers of many “Geek Related” events, such as Drunk or Treat, our costumed Halloween tour and pub crawl and just recently ValensPlay, a cosplay Valentine's Day Dinner and Show and DoDeca Smash, a Super Smash Bros. Tournament, we pride ourselves in making our events feel like family. Because everyone is family.

We have been attending cons for over 20 years, some as attendees, others as vendors and artist. The one thing we have always felt was missing is that personal feel. As a mid level convention we make sure we hold onto that feeling so that everyone, from the first time con goer and new retailer, to con veterans.

This year DoDeca-Con 3 will take place on September 11th-13th, 2015 in a new location, the Howard Johnson Inn, in Columbia, MO. We have also arranged a deal with the hotel for discounted rooms for both guests and attendees, which we have included in our VIP Packages.

We are excited to have you as a guest of DoDeca-Con and a new member of the DoDeca Family!
