Neopets will be coming to various conventions around the USA and Asia this fall! Here's where they just announced they'll have a presence:

RetroGameCon
When: October 7th-8th
Where: The Oncenter's Nicholas J. Pirro Convention Center, Syracuse, New York, USA
Tickets: Starting at $42.59 for a weekend pass, or $25.25 for day pass Tickets

The sponsorship will allow Neopets to give back to the local community like never before. Neopets is teaming up with RetroGameCon to support a worthy cause through a con-wide auction, allowing attendees to bid on exclusive Neopets merch packages, with proceeds benefiting Extra Life. Attendees can look forward to a blast from the past with a Neopian scavenger hunt throughout the show, redefining the brand's commitment to bringing to life immersive and community-driven projects. All attendees will also receive an exclusive Neopets lanyard at the event!

There will also be a scavenger hunt available, and the first 500 to finish will receive a "special prize."


New York Comic Con
When: October 13th-14th
Where: Javits Centre, New York, New York, USA
Tickets: Starting at $73.25 for Thursday and Sunday only (Fri + Sat sold out) Tickets

Fans and adventurers can join in on Neopets-themed quests, photo ops, and Neostalgic giveaways featuring a Faerie twist! With surprises around every corner, this faerie extravaganza promises to transport attendees into the enchanting world of Neopia. Fans are invited to look out for 5 Neopian Faeries floating around the convention center to participate in an exclusive NYCC giveaway by snapping a photo and tagging @NeopetsOfficialAccount on Instagram to participate!


gamescom asia
When: October 19th-22nd
Where: Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore
Tickets: Starting at S$25 Tickets

CEO Speaking Panel
Neopets is honored to have its passionate leader, Dominic Law, as a featured speaker at gamescom asia. Dominic will be sharing insights into the evolution of Neopets and the gaming industry. ... Attendees can look forward to an engaging and thought-provoking session that explores the past, present, and future of Neopets. Singapore is one of Neopets' most engaged countries outside of North America. As an international hub of tech and innovation, it will help usher in a coast-to-coast effort by Neopets to revive the brand. The game has always brought together a diverse demographic, and for the first time, that global online community will be celebrated by the brand in person.

Here's a conspiracy theory for why the Faerie Festival is being delayed... so there's a site event going on during at least the first two conventions on this list!

Oooo! Interesting!
karmattacker, September 20, 2023 2:19 PM NST
I feel like something this elaborate must have had some earlier planning though, there's still very little chance they didn't know this already before giving out the initial 20th date.

If TNT prioritized Halloween again, they would have some kind of event in October to fill the event void.

Viacom era TNT revered Halloween.

three mentions of "the brand"? sometimes it doesn't feel like they're talking to the actual existing user base at all
dave - JN Staff, September 20, 2023 4:57 PM NST
@karmattacker: That's why it's a conspiracy!
ninetendogamecube, September 20, 2023 5:44 PM NST
@hovermarlot: I mean, most people who know of Neopets only know it as a brand, especially because JS fumbled the bag so hard. The power of Neopets is the fandom and the brand. I agree that I wish a copyeditor had gone in with better text, but I don' think this is meant for the average player, it's for the wider audience who knows Neopets as an entity.

I like how various conventions around the US just means New York. I know they PROBABLY mean they will announce more in the future, but I just found it funny.
dave - JN Staff, September 20, 2023 8:04 PM NST
@targoefista: fwiw, "around the USA" is language I used when writing the post, not from their announcement--so blame me, not TNT on that one.

I find it super interesting SG is one of the most engaged countries outside of NA

@eravilan - 20 years ago, Neopets' Singaporean fan base was large enough to warrant a mall tour stop there:

A player even wrote about their experience there (including meeting Donna) in the NT:

@pancake how interesting! Thank you for sharing! I had no idea, how cool. Makes me super happy

"Dominic will be sharing insights into the evolution of Neopets and the gaming industry."

TNT says „Screw Europe“
roshchodesh, September 21, 2023 4:00 PM NST
@eravilan " I find it super interesting SG is one of the most engaged countries outside of NA"

why? I can't even imagine why that's 'super interesting'
sinthr, September 22, 2023 6:18 AM NST
I hope they don't release another pay to win avatar like the TCG shoryu one. They seem unavare not everyone can travel or attend these kind of things, or that not everyone use facebook, twitter or other social media. *sigh* I miss good old neopets, when a pc was all you need.
dave - JN Staff, September 22, 2023 9:56 AM NST
@roshchodesh: It's a bit surprising that Singapore is the top country given how small the population is. I would have expected a number of other countries to beat it just based on population numbers.

For JN, Singapore is #6. Australia, Brazil, and the UK have higher visitor counts. (With US #1 and Canada #2.)
jenneh, September 22, 2023 7:29 PM NST
various = two locations in NY. Because America is NY, right?
roshchodesh, September 25, 2023 9:51 AM NST
Believe me, Syracuse and NYC are like two completely different states / locations.
jenneh, September 25, 2023 6:37 PM NST
true. just maybe various isn't the right journalistic word.
iloveeevee, September 26, 2023 4:17 AM NST
i just wish we'd get a Neopets booth at any European con one day..... not even wishing for germany bc i know how impossible that is, just anywhere in europe please
it's something i'd be willing to travel for :'(
