  • About the event

    Three days and nights of retro immersion, including a live music lineup featuring some of the hottest names in Synthwave, a massive themed video arcade, cult and genre film festival, console gaming time capsule, iconic guests and panelists, a yacht rock-themed lounge, a vendor "shopping mall," and above all, a chance to experience the future as imagined by the past without having to invent a time machine.

    Join us in Rhode Island, The Ocean State, Summer 2018 for an exclusive glimpse into the future that never was.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Aligning your company with NEON in its first year shows that you are tapped into the next big thing before the mainstream catches on. We will be blanketing all of our social media with promotional materials leading up to the event. We'll also be giving interviews to and cross-promoting with respected influencers in the scene, distributing flyers and posters at promotional/partner events, as well as launching some truly unique viral marketing campaigns that are sure to attract press attention!
