At Kaiga Convention, our mission is to create an immersive experience where Anime, Pop Culture, Gaming, Cosplay, and Entertainment converge. We are committed to continuous improvement, actively listening to feedback, and prioritizing the needs of our community. Honesty, Art and Kindness are at the core of our values, and we deeply appreciate the collective effort that brings this event to life. Together, we strive to cultivate an environment that fosters creativity, embraces kindness, and celebrates the power of art in uniting individuals.
Where we began
Kaiga Convention has a humble beginning rooted in the passion and resilience of a small team of local artists. It all started when an interstate event fell through, and in response, this dedicated group stepped up to create a pop-up artist alley. Inspired by the overwhelming response and eager to provide a larger event, they embarked on the journey to create something even bigger. The inaugural event in November 2021 at Claremont Showgrounds exceeded our expectations, attracting a highly successful turnout - we weren't ready for it! Building on that success, Kaiga Convention returned in 2022 at Perth Convention & Exhibition Center with a smaller space, yet it still drew in the enthusiastic crowd of cosplayers and devoted fans of pop culture, anime, and gaming. This incredible journey showcases our commitment to growth, community, and the vibrant celebration of art in all its forms.
Where we are going
Kaiga Convention is forging ahead towards an exciting future. With our third event on the horizon, an expanded team, and more passion than ever we are returning to Perth Convention and Exhibition Center in grand style. This year, our event has doubled in size, featuring an array of captivating entertainment and attractions, as well as all your returning favourites. We are dedicated to supporting our talented artists by introducing innovative opportunities to connect them with customers and to help them financially.
Our vision extends beyond Perth as we aspire to make KaiCon a wonderful experience and expand its reach to other cities across Australia and New Zealand. Join us on this journey as we bring the magic of Kaiga Convention to new horizons!
