Nom-con is fast approaching and so we'll be coming up with plenty of updates on the website. Expect the event schedule any day now along with a bunch more updates. For now though:
This year we are delighted to be supporting Headstrong, a charity that helps support young people’s mental health in Ireland, tackling things such as stress, anxiety, and depression. You can help donate in many ways this year!
First off we are happy to announce that Nom-con will be donating a WiiU to help raise money in a charity raffle. To enter you can simply buy a Headstrong Weekend pass or get tickets at the main desk for €3. Winner will be announced Sunday evening at the closing ceremony. Headstrong passes will close this Friday so get pre-regging!
Second you can just buy some tea and cake in the Maid Cafe! All profits from the Maid Cafe will be donated to Headstrong as we have done so in previous years. :)
Thirdly we will be running our annual Charity Auction as usual with all kinds of items for you to bid on in the name of a good cause. So yes buy something and help people! How cool is that!? Finally you can even just donate anything at all into the buckets that will be around during the weekend. All donations will be greatly apreciated and you'll have our love and respect for it. For details on the charity itself please look at our Charity page!
This year we have a lot of excellect sponsors that you can see on our Sponsors page. Right now I'm happy to say that Volks, one of our Sponsors, is donating a Saber Alter v2 Dollfie Dream to give away in the Charity Auction. Standing at 60cm and absolutely gorgeous, Saber should be on anybody's wishlist. Also in collaberation with Volks we will be running a Dollfie Dream and BJD display in the trade hall. If you'd like to see in person please take a look! More details on Saber can be seen by clicking on the image below. :)

Welcome to the new website of Nom-con 2014!(17/10/13)
First off many thanks to everyone who came to last year’s Nom-con; The amazing staff, the committee, the guests, the traders, the sponsors and most importantly you the attendees who all make this convention possible. Overall the weekend seemed to go pretty well and we got some great feedback from everyone. If you do have any more feedback or suggestions or ideas please feel free to post them in the new forums.
At the end of September a new committee for Nom-con was elected. This year we've seen more new faces than ever before join the ranks while at the same time saying fond farewell to many of last year’s committee who did some great work and was really appreciated, you will be missed. That said there are still a couple of positions to fill and details of this will be announced very soon! To view this year’s committee and contact details please go to our Contact us page.
There's an enormous amount of work ahead of us and we've already been very busy the last few weeks! First off we are proud to announce our dates and venue for next year as being August 1st - 3rd in the Ballsbridge Hotel. Last time the staff at the hotel were very nice and the venue has a lot of potential in delivering a great convention so we decided to stick with it once again.
The old website had fallen on hard times and it was time for a change so here you can see the fruits of many weeks of labor from our new webmaster with a brand new updated website and forums, and we do hope you'll love it as much as we do. Our plan with the site is to keep it regularly updated with all the latest information and news on the convention and its smaller events so please check back regularly. Also we hope you'll like the new layout of the forum and help us getting it buzzing again by signing up and posting away! =)
