Midwest Media Expo FAQ
Q: Where will the Midwest Media Expo take place?
A: We are proud to announce that the Midwest Media Expo will take place at The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, the center of Downtown Detroit.
Q: Is this a one day "just a dealer's room" type of event, or should M2X be a weekend trip?
A: It's what you choose to make of it. All of our one-day attendees will have full access to our huge exhibitor room, interactive live events, celebrity and attendee panels, and gaming rooms for the day they purchased - but we feel the real magic comes from spending the weekend downtown and taking advantage of our 24-hour programming. We have contracted with several downtown hotels to ensure a comfortable weekend stay for our attendees.
Q: Is this replacing Youmacon?
A: Absolutely not. Youmacon and the Midwest Media Expo will exist side-by-side as sister events. Youmacon will be held annually during the first weekend of November, while the Midwest Media Expo will occur annually in the Spring.
Q: This sounds cool... When is it?
A: The Midwest Media Expo will take place starting on Friday, April 25 2014, and last until Sunday, April 27.
Q: Do I have to wear a costume (cosplay)?
A: Costumes are in no way required, but they can be a lot of fun. It's up to you!
Q: The original website / ad mentioned Cobo Center, is the event still going to be at two locations?
A: After considering a number of factors, we decided to host the entire event at the Renaissance Center rather then split our resources between two locations for the inaugural media expo. To make sure we do not break fire code (which would shut the entire event down), we may be limiting our first year attendance. This may change depending on demand, and the availibility of additional venues around the Downtown area.
Q: What is your refund policy for preregistration?
A: We offer a refund period of purchase up to 7 calendar days from purchase. To request a refund, please email our refunds team.
Q: What if I have a question that isn't answered?
A: Please feel free to ask us any questions you may have by emailing our attendee services team.
