Hotel information for Power-Con 2018

The Power-Con convention is being held on August 25th & 26th, 2018 at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach! We have secured a special room rate for Power-Con attendees!

  • Single or Double Standard Room, $147 USD per night; up to 4 people per room

You should be charged the first night’s room cost. This is a NON-refundable advanced deposit for (1) night room and tax. It will be charged within 48 hours after placing your reservation, to the credit card you have on file.

For the reservation link, and links to other nearby hotel options in the surrounding Torrance area, please visit our Hotel section.

Hotel reservation opens Friday, February 2nd

The discounted Power-Con hotel block at the Torrance Marriott Redondo Beach, the location of Power-Con, opens to attendees on Friday, February 2nd, 2018 at 9am Pacific / 12pm Eastern.

In 2017, the discounted hotel block sold out in a few weeks. We expect it to sell out even faster this year. So do NOT delay in reserving your room!

IMPORTANT: In order to make sure people do not sit on discounted hotel rooms, the first night’s stay will be charged to the cards of those who reserve discounted rooms for Power-Con 2018. This charge is non-refundable. So be sure you plan to attend the show before you reserve your room in the discounted hotel block!

For those of you who are not 100% certain you will be attending, we will also post links to other hotel options nearby. Plus you will have the option of reserving via Torrance Marriott’s website at their regular room rates which gives you the option to cancel a reservation at a later date, per their cancellation policy. We hope to see you at the show!

We bet you’re wondering about tickets, exclusives, and more, right? We have some early info for you!

We hope to have ticket & exclusive pre-sales open in late February. But it might be as late as early April before they go on sale, similar to 2017. Pre-sales are tied to our show’s toy exclusives, which are in production right now. As soon as we have prices finalized on those, then ticket & exclusive pre-sales will follow.

For tickets, we will again have Saturday, Sunday and Weekend passes.
There will also be our extremely limited Power Pass tickets that give holders early access to the show, guaranteed front row access in the panels, and access to the green room! Power Pass benefits do not extend to children 12 or under who have free entrance to the convention. Power Passes sold out in less than 10 minutes last year!

For the toy exclusives, we are moving to a smaller number of offerings. The exclusives are important for helping to make Power-Con the awesome experience that it is, but we’re also aware of how taxing it can be on your bank account if there’s too many exclusives to purchase. So for 2018, we will have just three Masters of the Universe Classics exclusives: one will be Collector’s Choice and two will be Club Grayskull. We won’t spoil what they are right now, but you could see their reveal as soon as Toy Fair this February! Also, there may be some other items in addition to MOTU Classics, similar to 2017.

For exhibitors, booth and table registration will open around the same time as Attendee registration. In 2017, we sold out of table and booth space in a record four days. So if you are interested in exhibiting at Power-Con, be sure to inquire about space as soon as registration opens! Stay tuned for the day and time that exhibitor registration will begin.

Guest announcements will start soon! Power-Con 2018 will focus primarily on the 35th anniversary of Filmation He-Man, and the 10th anniversary of MOTU Classics. So expect many of our guests to represent those two important anniversaries.

We will have a cosplay contest for 2018, and Pixel Dan will be back to MC! We’ll have info on that coming soon. But don’t let that slow you down on starting the creation of your awesome cosplay costume for Power-Con!

Volunteer & press registration will also open around the same time as Attendee registration. More info is coming!

Programming for Power-Con is usually not posted until about a month before the show. That’s because all programming is based on our guest roster, which isn’t finalized until closer to the show.

We’re excited to bring you more news soon. And please spread the word about Power-Con to anyone you know who loves Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power. It’s always better to celebrate He-Man and She-Ra with other fans! Thank you so much for your interest and support of Power-Con.
