Miyacon was a 1-time convention that took place at the Old Pine Community Center in Philadelphia, PA on June 2nd, 2009. Its founder, Simmee Myers, was inspired to create Miyacon by being tasked with a graduation project for her Senior Year at Masterman High School in Philly, PA. After having been in attendance at TAKII 3 ~Video Game Ecstacy~, she met the TAKII Coordinators & was able to see 1st-hand the beauty & excitement that the fusion festival created all throughout the year. During a conversation that would be had in February 2007, Simmee confided in D-chan how much she admired "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" & how her dream was to not only be a part of making it happen, but she wanted to create an event on her own, under TAKII's direction! To make it official, D-chan had to sign as Simme's official Graduation Project Mentor & was contacted by Masterman High School multiple times in an effort to assess her progress in creating what we all now know & love as Miyacon. Though this convention only happened once, a lil known fact is that The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational still holds out the option to revive it!! But until that happens, let's enjoy Miyacon 2007 through a compelling multimedia presentation!
