The largest toy and collectible event in the US returns to the Anaheim Convention Center November 12–14!
DesignerCon is an annual convention that celebrates all aspects of the world of design, urban, underground, and pop art. With more than 500 exhibitors across the 3-day event, DesignerCon showcases the domestic and international designer toy/vinyl collectible market, incorporating everything from customs, apparel, plush, printing, sculpture, live painting, designer toys, and more!
DesignerCon x VeVe
VeVe is officially the first-ever NFT partner of DesignerCon, and we look forward to releasing a range of curated and exclusive limited-edition digital collectibles from DesignerCon-star artists, IPs, and brands.
With NFT releases featuring pop culture favorites Tristan Eaton, Tara McPherson, Camille Rose Garcia (and more to be announced), collectors can expect limited edition blind box releases throughout the weekend featuring randomized models and editions of various 3D toy series’ curated by VeVe founder David Yu.
Be sure to keep an eye out for DesignerCon’s mascot, Vincent, in some of the blind boxes too!
“DesignerCon, as the world’s largest designer art toy convention, gives collectors an unparalleled opportunity to meet their favorite artists and designers, while also giving these creators a massive platform to share their creative work and ideas.
VeVe understands the importance of the unique connection and, as a fan myself, I see DesignerCon as the eye of the storm where the like-minded come to explore, learn, and be inspired.”
— David Yu, VeVe CEO
VeVe Makes Collecting Fun!
While digital art NFTs have been in the mainstream for some time now, the emergence of art toy NFTs is new and thrilling, and this partnership provides the perfect live event debut.
VeVe has always been designed with collectors in mind, creating new and exciting collectibles experiences while simplifying the way we interact with NFTs. Collectors can easily purchase and sell limited-edition digital collectibles using Gems, which in turn can be displayed in a virtual showroom or literally walked through in the real world using Augmented Reality.
DesignerCon is also the first physical event that VeVe will be on display, and we look forward to sharing the platform with a new fanbase — and meeting some of ours, of course!
DesignerCon will be full of headline-making design and art programming IRL!
Keep an eye out for exclusive releases from Pop Mart, DKE Toys, MONDO, MightyJaxx, and so many more! As the only US show to host MEDICOM, DesignerCon is thrilled to announce the 2021 Artist Series [email protected] pack featuring Junko Mizuno, Tara McPherson, Aaron Kai, Sket One, and Brian Viveros.
The event also features a collectible program from the legendary Tristan Eaton, and work from Mollie Komins, Naoshi, and Valency Genis, just to name a few.
For those who can’t attend the event in California, DesignerCon will also feature hybrid programming for both an in-person and online audience, in partnership with Popshop Live.

Founded in 2005 by Ben Goretsky, DesignerCon brings together artists, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in the designer toy/vinyl collectibles market and has grown to incorporate everything in the design world including apparel, plush, printing, sculpture, designer toys, and both fine and urban art. The steady growth DesignerCon has enjoyed correlates with its popularity in today’s art nerd, geek culture; collectors and designer toy lovers alike wait through the night for new releases, pre-orders for new artist collaboration apparel are sold out within minutes, and artists use the convention as an opportunity to announce exclusive releases and collaborations.www.designercon.com
