According to the MomoCon press release:

Founded in 2004 by Jessica Merriman and Chris Stuckey, then students at Georgia Tech, MomoCon has grown from a 700 person on campus event to the largest event in the southeast United States for fans of video games, animation, cosplay, comics and tabletop games.

This exponential growth brought panels and presentations from leaders in the industry, including Square Enix, Blizzard, Toonami, and voice actors from popular video games and televisions shows. Local companies and organizations from Atlanta included GameSkinny, Gamer Launch, the Georgia Game Developer’s Association, Hi-Rez Studios, and Blue Mammoth Games. 

For the third year, MomoCon hosted its annual Indie Game Awards showcase — in which five indie games are selected as winners from a pool of 20 finalists. This year’s awards went to Stoic Studio’s Banner Saga 2Mimimi Productions’ Shadow Tactics: Blades of the ShogunCrema Games’ Immortal Redneck, Refract Studios’ Distance, and Firma Studio’s Talent Not Included. 

MomoCon co-founder Chris Stuckey expressed his gratitude for what the event has become in recent years.

“This year we were honored to host some the biggest names in gaming in addition to renewing our commitment to independent developers at this year’s Indie Game Award Show. As the gaming industry grows, so does MomoCon, which boasts the largest gaming show floor in the southeast US.”
