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 Royal Dearborn Hotel and Convention Center (formerlly the Hyatt Regency).

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 28 2017, and last until Sunday, April 30.

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: 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.
