KCON Japan 2017

KCON is an annual Korean wave (the increase in global popularity of South Korean culture since the 1990) convention held in different locations across the world, organized by Powerhouse Live, Mnet Media, CJ E&M and Koreaboo. It started in 2012 and is based in Southern California but expanded to the East Coast and Japan in 2015. Koreaboo broke news that in 2016, KCON would be expanding into Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates with the date set for March 25, 2016 and in Paris, France on June 2, 2016 for first time ever. In 2017, KCON announced that they will be hosting their first KCON Mexico at the Mexico City Arena on March 17 and 18, 2017. Koreaboo again broke news that KCON would be expanding to Australia for the first time, making it the 7th expansion country since KCON launched in 2012.

Since its launch, KCON has grown to see over 350,000 attendees worldwide in the United States, Japan, Saudi Arabia, France, and South Korea. Mexico City and Australia will make KCON a 7-country festival, arguably one of the largest events held annually in the world.
