Information:
JaniCon is oriented around making the conventions experience as interactive as possible for its guests and thus has brought in a third-party show director to emulate the same kind of atmosphere that can be found in theme parks. Stage shows, improvisation actors, themed costumes, and an interactive story all are being incorporated into making attendees feel as though they are part of something bigger than your typical convention.
