Introducing RECON

The Reality Escape Convention is a conversation for the escape room industry. With core tenets of knowledge, connection, and immersion, RECON opens dialogues. By attending RECON, you will gain new insights and a broader community. RECON supports a sustainable escape room industry now and in the future.


For years, people have been asking when Room Escape Artist would host a conference.

In 2020, we saw that the needs of our community were not being met and we responded with the inaugural RECON event: RECON ‘20 Global.


Our convention is born out of a love for these games. It is about growing this industry. It is about realizing potential – of creators, of experiences, of storytelling.

We see escape rooms as a new medium for storytelling and play. Our goal is to turn it into a medium that is timeless like theater, music, tabletop games, video games, film, and the written word.

Presented by Room Escape Artist

RECON is presented by Room Escape Artist, your source of well-researched, rational, and reasonably humorous escape room reviews, design tips, player tips, and industry commentary… and your source for industry reports, coveted awards, escape room tours, and media appearances. We are wry cheerleaders, critics, and ambassadors of the escape room world.
