Mech Con

Hosted by Piranha Games Inc., Mech_Con is an annual MechWarrior and BattleTech convention located in Vancouver Canada. Though focused primary upon the titles developed by Piranha Games, MechWarrior Online and MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (which was first announced at Mech_Con), the convention has increasingly become a generalized celebration of all things BattleTech with representatives from Catalyst Game Labs and Harebrained Schemes also attending.
