A large theme of ComplexCon is the celebration of streetwear and fashion. Many
brands and designers will be dropping exclusive items and collaborations available
only at the convention, according to an announcement.
Attendees will have the opportunity to shop these items in the Marketplace where
they have brought together art, food, and fashion vendors that will be accessible for

the duration of the weekend. Some booths feature companies that say they will offer
“experiences,” like Firefox and eBay.
