Animecon and Finncon have been held in conjunction, sharing premises but no events; they even often held separate opening ceremonies.

After the 2007 conventions, an organizer cited the number of visitors as an estimated 7000. Animecon II was the first major cosplay event in Finland, and the practice has been noted for its abundance in later ones. (en)
