Past Events


In August of 2021, we held the second annual RECON Global, an online event that brought our global escape room community back together.

RECON ’21 ushered in rebirth of escape rooms, following a year where in person entertainment. We presented a collection of 14 featured talks guided by where we’re going, not where we’ve been.

Tickets included Basic (pay what you want!), Pro (included a workshop!), and VIP (special access!). We also created add-on such as the Play Pass (play games!) and Virtual Escape Jam (create a game!).


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.
