March 6, 2020 (MIAMI, FL) – Organizers of RetroPop Con and City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez today announced that the national ‘80s pop culture convention set for April 25 and 26 in Miami’s Mana Convention Center in Wynwood is being postponed due to concerns about the Coronavirus.

“In consultation with City of Miami leaders, our partners, venue, sponsors, talent, and health professionals, we’ve determined that our April timeline puts our large-scale convention and its guests in an unacceptably uncertain and growing cone of risk,” said Manny Ruiz, organizer, and founder of RetroPop Con.  “RetroPop will return to Miami when it’s safer to do so and we are extremely grateful for the continued strong partnership of iHeartMedia, our presenting partner, Moishe Mana, the Mana Convention Center, and SWARM, all of whom have been incredible to work with.  When we return, we will all return.”

Said Mayor Suarez: “RetroPop is one of the most exciting events that we have been anticipating this year.  We understand the difficult decision organizers made to postpone the date until the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus subsides.  We remain enthusiastic about celebrating Miami’s contribution to 80s pop culture later this year once a new date is set.”

RetroPop Con will offer guests who have purchased their passes the option of getting a full refund or a special voucher to the next possible RetroPop convention, one of which is still slated for the end of the year.  Next year’s RetroPop Con Miami is already scheduled for April 2021 at the Mana Convention Center.

RetroPop Con conventions feature a jam-packed, all-inclusive weekend of concerts, celebrity photograph/autograph sessions, panels, 80s cosplay, cinematic events, competitions, collectors, ‘80s car show, retro arcade gaming, exhibitors, and much more.

MIAMI, FL – November 25, 2019 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Bro-Town, this one’s for you.

The beloved decade and city that gave us Marino, Bro Culture, Conga fever, and “Sabado Gigante” will be starring in an epic throwback pop culture celebration next Spring the likes of which the 305 – and the Eastern United States – has never seen.

Global decades fan conventions company NostalgiaCon, LLC announced today that it is taking its second annual ‘80s pop culture convention to Miami for an unprecedented, multicultural-themed, decade takeover show that will feature the music, icons, legends, and much more of the 1980s, April 25 and 26 at the MANA Convention Center.

With Wynwood as its canvas, the second annual “comic-con” of retro pop culture festivals will feature a jam-packed weekend of music acts representing all the genres of the ‘80s, film and TV show reunions, exhibitors and collectors, exclusive merchandise, panels, cosplay, arcade gaming, classic ‘80s cars, and other surprises. (Early bird passes to NostalgiaCon Miami can be purchased at www.NostalgiaConMiami.com now through Black Friday, November 29, while a limited run of discounted passes exists).

NostalgiaCon Miami represents a major return for company founder and CEO Manny Ruiz, who co-created and until last year produced the nationally renowned Hispanicize event for nine years, including seven consecutive years in the Magic City.

“I’ve been licking my chops to bring NostalgiaCon permanently to my hometown, the place where I also brought the Latino community together nationally for years,” said Ruiz. “NostalgiaCon Miami builds on this legacy and will be very diverse and dynamic base for us every Spring because throwback and ‘80s/’90s pop culture has never been more fun to celebrate across cultures, generations, and languages.”

Building on the NostalgiaCon ‘80s pilot show organizers held at the Anaheim Convention Center in September as well as their experience leading Hispanicize, NostalgiaCon Miami will feature brand sponsorships that are heavily integrated with social media influencers and media partners.

Said Angela Sustaita-Ruiz, co-founder of both NostalgiaCon and Hispanicize: “Our expertise in pioneering the Latino social media and marketing space will serve us particularly well with multicultural brand sponsors at NostalgiaCon Miami. NostalgiaCon Miami is set up to help brands generate major social media and earned media and our platform is ideal for sponsors who want to engage media and consumers around U.S. Hispanic, lifestyle, family, travel, fashion, and/or entertainment themes.”
