DesignerCon Founder, Ben Goretsky Talks About the 18th Annual Event Taking Place in Anaheim, CA From December 15-17, 2023.
DesignerCon returns for its 18th Annual events from the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, running from December 15-17, 2023. We were thrilled to speak with Ben Goretsky about DesignerCon, how things have evolved from a collector convention to a full blown designer event with talent around the world as well as Vinny growing up and becoming Vincent.
The 2023 convention will welcome 600 vendors and over 350 artists and designers for a diverse array of programming and products, including the return of DCON fan-favorites: MEDICOM TOY, Tokidoki, POPMART, SHEIN X, MightyJaxx, How2Work, Good Smile, 3DRetro and many more.
Goretsky takes us through the years of DesignerCon and what to expect for this year’s event with quite a few surprises. Especially with the recently announced Corey Feldman signing of his limited edition Funko Pop.
Throughout 2023 and 2024, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Hollywood Sign Trust, The City of Los Angeles and Evolution, joins forces with DesignerCon to provide an engaging fan experience.
The Hollywood 100 Art Show, curated by Carmen Acosta, will feature 100 local and international artists, each of whom will customize and display a Hollywood Sign figurine designed by Onch. All 100 unique and individually-stylized pieces will be displayed at the event, ahead of their 2024 presentation at the heart of Hollywood Boulevard as part of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s efforts to honor the history and enduring legacy of the Hollywood Sign.
Adding to DCON’s 2023 theme of Hollywood, the event will also feature a Hollywood Pavillion, in collaboration with several companies to produce limited edition items for sale. Vendors like Tokidoki, artist Michael Kalish, renowned designer ONCH, among others, will be included in the Pavilion setup.
