The Georgia World Congress Center is an exciting venue and opportunity to expand MomoCon into a fantastic new forever home! It boasts over 5600 parking spots, three enormous buildings that comprise the 3rd largest convention center in the US, and a host of nearby hotels as well as Centennial Olympic Park across the street! This venue has not held a lot of fan conventions in the past 20 years, so many of our regional attendees are not as familiar with the surroundings. Listed is a map of the downtown area around the venue and several areas that might be good for your meetup and photoshoot needs at the event, all are within an easy walk or are immediately adjacent to the venue.
If you submit before April 15th, your shoot will be listed in the program book and app!
Due to overwhelming demand for indoor photo areas and the great success our friends at the 501st had with their great set pieces at MomoCon 2017, we were happy to bring the expansion of Cosplay Sets for MomoCon 2018! The sets will continue in 2019 with many upgrades and updates!
In addition to some great setups from the 501st raising money for some excellent charities and their Make a Wish endowment fund, MomoCon is happy to provide some additional options for photos, including a Moon Palace set with distant castle and pillars (akin to Sailor Moon) and a retro-style Fighting Stage (akin to 16 bit fighting game backgrounds)!
Small group reservations can be made through the Photo Shoot Signups (above), or stop by during the con!
As you immediately exit the Red Parking Deck, this large stairwell is immediately behind you when facing the GWCC, good for larger group shots and not as far away as the large stairs outside of Hall C.
If you walk straight across the street after exiting from Red Parking Deck, you will enter the area between Hall A and B. This view is from inside. Notice the glass-tile fountain, it continues down three floors.
Just above the Red Parking Deck is an open park area with views of the GWCC and Georgia Dome.
The courtyard between the Omni Hotel and GWCC. This area will likely remain crowded throughout the weekend, weather permitting. Behind the glass windows on the left-hand side of the image is the inclement weather walkway between the two buildings.
There are many interesting photo locations inside Hall A and the main MomoCon space, but one of the most interesting on the 3rd floor are these large windows that overlook the Gaming and Exhibitor Halls below. During the convention, the empty space behind the glass will be full of hundreds of companies, dealers, artists, games, the LAN, free play, arcades, Lazer Tag and more!
And some views of other parts of the surrounding Atlanta skyline and buildings.
Including the Skyview Atlanta and the Turner Building. The area near the Music Stage has some great spots with city backgrounds.
The Music Stage itself is a permanent fixture, and photos may be taken while posing on it(at your own risk). Be aware that the stage roof is leaky, however, and will catch rain if it has recently rained in the area.
We regularly hold Cosplayers on Ice in the location in the wintertime, you can see some examples of shots in and around the park in some of the galleries on our Flickr.
