RECON – Reality Escape Convention

The Reality Escape Convention, or RECON for short, is an escape room and immersive gaming convention for industry professionals and players.

The Next Event


This summer, we’re excited to bring back RECON Global, a 100% digital convention. It will take place August 22-23, 2021

For the past year, in much of our community, escape rooms have been largely dormant. We see this summer as their rebirth, with RECON ‘21 ushering in change. Together, we’ll cast aside old ways of thinking and embrace new ideas. We present a collection of featured talks guided by where we’re going, not where we’ve been.

Learn more about the speakers and featured talks. These are accessible to every holder.

Tickets include Basic (pay what you want!), Pro (includes a workshop!), and VIP (special access!). You can add a Play Pass (play games!) or Virtual Escape Jam (create a game!) to any RECON ticket. Learn more about tickets.

Past Events


In August of 2020 we held the first annual RECON. It was supposed to be held in Boston, but in light of the pandemic we pivoted, and brought it online.

We had over 900 people in our digital venue, The RECON Discord, from at least 62 different countries, plus countless others watching live as we streamed streamed talks. RECON ’20 Global was a resounding success.
