About CAD

When is CAD?
CAD will be held December 17 - 19, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency O'hare in Rosemont, Illinois.

What makes CAD special?
CAD is a weekend focused on some really epic special events, and really great special guests. Join us in our Maid Cafe, go to panels with fantastic voice actors, and hang out with the best group ever. We want CAD to be a unique experience, where you get more time to hang out with our special guests and make new friends than you will get at other conventions.

What can I expect?
C+A+D is a fun-filled weekend of cosplay, anime, and video games. We have a ton of panels, a ton of events, and several awesome guests.

Who organizes Con+Alt+Delete?
We're organized by the same people who have brought you Anime Midwest, such as Ryan Kopf and We have over 8 years of experience in organizing the most high-quality convention experiences in the country. C+A+D is meant to be a smaller convention, but we are working on making it one of the most fun, intimate conventions you'll ever experience.

Is this like a mini version of Anime Midwest?
Usually yes! Most of the events and activities will be the same, but we try to have different guests at each to give you more of a chance to meet cool people. Everything is a little smaller, but it is also a lot cheaper to attend.
