    Default Unofficial GrowCon 2020 | Information

    Spring 2020, Miami

    Hey. I am thrilled to say that I, and another co-host decided to host first unofficial GrowCon event. It will be taking place during Spring of 2020th in Miami, United States. I believe this is a great opportunity to get to know the community closer, have a great time, and play different games.

    NOTE: This event is not official. It's not affiliated with Ubisoft in any way. It's hosted by regular players of Growtopia.

    What will we have during this GrowCon?

    • A lot of different contests and games with monetary prizes! (in order not to break The Growtopia Code, we will NOT issue prizes using in-game currency if the contest took place anywhere outside the game).
    • Snacks and drinks (non alcoholic, of course)! That's on us, don't worry .
    • We will issue laptops and tablets so we can all play Growtopia, and have fun contests in-game. (Yep, prizes included)
    • Huge TV, and Playstation.
    • Swimming pool. Make sure to bring swimming trunks and suits. Nothing inappropriate, though.
    • Lounge area.


    Pictures of the community center where the event will take place.



    Does this all sound interesting? Then make sure to get a ticket to GrowCon 2020 taking place in Miami.

    For all the information, or if you have questions about the event, join the Discord server below. We will try to answer all questions you might have.

    See ya all during GrowCon Miami 2020.




    UPDATE

    After discussing the things you were concerned about (mainly safety), me and my co-host have decided to make this event private. This means that it will be invitation based. This doesn't mean that GrowCon will not be taking place. It simply means that we have decided to host it in a circle of close friends. Feel free to message me on forums if you have any questions regarding it.

    Sorry for inconvenience.

    not to be mean but some parts sound pretty sketchy, for example, issuing devices. Like who do we know you dont have keyloggers to steal your participants accounts, if it's a irl meet up, why not do it out side in a city area like at a cafe or a mall than like at someone's house, it sounds Abit dangerous especially to younger participants I guess. Good luck with your event though

    That's no problem at all. We would actually prefer for attendees to bring their own devices for security purposes, but we understand that not all people are able to do that. Regarding your second point, the meet-up is taking place in a community center of a decent neighborhood. We still urge younger participants to get parental consent, and/or bring their parents with them.

    Update

    Just went to the community center where the GrowCon will take place, and snapped few pictures. You can get a general idea of what we will have during this event. I do hope at least few of you will come.

    The approximate cost for the use of a community center is $149 for few hours. This does not include the snacks and drinks (we will provide that). Depending on how many people sign up, we will order at least two pizza pies, 15-20 bottles of soda (two or three kinds), some other snacks, and water bottles. We already have everything else. The total cost of the event which we look forward to is currently at $250.

    It is somewhat pricey, but manageable.

    I’m not gonna lie, this whole thing seems a little bit sketchy to me. I’m sorry if this sounds rude, but you appear out of nowhere and announce that you’re hosting some sort of game meetup. I understand it’ll be hosted at a public location, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be completely safe. No matter your intentions, it’s still dangerous, for you and for people who might show up. Not to mention your co-host’s username happens to be Ski Mask, which doesn’t help the situation, no offense. Unfortunately, the world happens to be a scary place and I just needed to voice my concerns.

    I definitely agree. It just sounds sketchy as heck! "unofficial" growcon. plus it just kinda seems too good for a convention center about a game

    I understand your concerns. If you live anywhere near Miami, feel free to take a look at the community center that the event will take place in. It has constant surveillance, and there is a security guard outpost few meters away from the gate. I hope you don't feel pressured into attending it. It's completely voluntary, and is simply a way for a community to get together in a place other than our computer screens.
