This past weekend marked my third trip to Washington, DC to support Awesome Con, the highly-anticipated annual convention that brings together thousands of fans to celebrate a diverse range of fandoms. This year, ShowClix partnered with Awesome Con and LeftField Media on-site to support the attendee registration and merchandise sales, as well as autograph sales and redemption at the event.
Awesome Con truly offers something for everyone. This is evidenced by this year’s impressive list of celebrity guests, which included Star Wars star John Boyega, the stars of Boy Meets World (Ben Savage, Rider Strong, and Will Friedle), and WWE Superstars The New Day, plus dozens upon dozens more. In addition to the celebrity guests and fantastic panel programming, Awesome Con fills the Washington Convention Center with tons of gaming, shopping, and impressive cosplay. All that being said, one of my absolute favorite aspects of Awesome Con is always Future Con, the science and technology focused content that includes partnerships with NASA and the Smithsonian.
The on-site team had a blast, and we can’t wait to be back next year. Mark your calendars, and join us at Awesome Con 2019: April 26-28, 2019!
