About Us

CatCon® is where pop culture and cat culture converge, showcasing some of the world’s top cat-centric merchandise, conversations with those at the epicenter of the cat world, incredible activations, and one of the biggest adoption lounges ever.

Over 40,000 cat people came together from around the globe for CatCon 2015, 2016 and 2017, with coverage in The New York Times, Buzzfeed, Vanity Fair, Gizmodo, Jezebel, PopSugar, and others, making it the biggest cat related pop culture convention in the world.

Our Core Values

Debunking the Cat Lady Myth:
We are changing the negative perception of the “crazy cat lady” and proving that it is possible to be hip, stylish, and have a cat, simultaneously.

Shelters Far and Wide:
We support animal shelters, both local and nationwide, in all of their efforts from adoption to feline healthcare to spay/neuter.

Adopt Don’t Shop:
We vigorously promote  “adopt, don’t shop.” Each year, millions of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. When you adopt instead of buying, you’re saving lives.

Inform, Educate and Entertain:
Through engaging seminars and activations, we strive to educate and inform people in entertaining and outside the box ways.

Giving Back

We will announce our official charity beneficiary for CatCon 2018 early next year.
