Animatic Con

Animatic is taking place in Cincinnati, Ohio on the weekend of July 30thth – Aug 1st  of 2021. This will be our 5th year!

Our 2021 convention will be held at Holiday Inn Eastgate located at 4501 Eastgate Blvd, Cincinnati, OH 45245.

Our Mission

AnimaticConMascotTo create a convention that welcomes those with disabilities and also helps in removing any limitations one would face while attending an animation and cosplay convention.


Animatic: according to Merriam- Webster
a preliminary sequence of shots, images, or sketches (as for a movie or an animated television program) that is filmed or arranged usually with a soundtrack and viewed to determine its effectiveness before being finalized


Animatic Con started in March of 2015 with the idea of delivering to the fandoms across the U.S. a convention that was fun, and had a higher purpose. After much consideration and discussion, we decided that we wanted to help raise funds for Autism, and with that we wanted to create a convention that welcomed people with limitations, and accommodate to their needs.

Animatic Con has been raising funds since 2016 and donating to ALL IN for Autism, who we’ve worked with to ensure that funds raised go into the community to help provide the resources that they need.

ALL IN for Autism is a Cincinnati based charity that is a 501c3 organization. They are responsible for putting on the Autism Expo which is held in Sharonville, Ohio each year. You can learn more about them by visiting their website


2020/ 2021’s theme is: Magic

2021 Postponed to late Summer

2021 Update from Conchair Brent:

Good evening, I apologize that this post is just now being made but would like to clear everything up for you all.
This week my team and I made the difficult decision to post pone Animatic Con. This decision was not made easily and while I only signed the new contract within the past 48 hours I was awaiting new hotel booking links to provide to everyone at the time of the announcement.
Due to signing this contract the hotel followed process and cancelled all reservations and has acknowledged the event being delayed to those who have inquired about their room or the event. I was hoping to have confirmed everything with the hotel to provide you all with all the details that were needed.

Regardless, what has happen has happen and all I can do is hope that we can begin to prepare for an amazing event this coming July!
Animatic Con 2021 will still happen! Our new dates are July 30th-August 1st, 2021.
You will now be able to book your hotel room and all badge sales have already been rolled over to the new date.

Should you be unable to attend in July, simply send us an email to with your ticket information and we will update your ticket to the following year.

I wish I could have provided this information much sooner to you all but was simply trying to get my ducks in a row to provide you with full details.

I will post the new hotel booking links tomorrow morning at 10am.
Thank you and we appreciate all of your support for our event.
