Be part of planning and organizing a world event when Guam hosts HERO-Con on December 9 at the Agana Shopping Center. Learn marketing and planning as you work with teams in the field or Cosplay and event planning.

Preparation Instruction:
  • Try to get the support of a teacher before signing up for the event. Show him/her the post on this website. 
  • Connect with Executive Director of Marketing of Tango Inc., Teri Flores, to choose your area of responsibility: registration, advertisement in different media, awards and handouts to participants.
  • Do an internet search on the Cosplay trend and possible characters you may want to portray. Determine what the character traits are of that character and how you can dramatize these traits. (Is he/she bold? shy? nervous? brave? humble?)
