One of the most jaw-droppingly incredible fandom events of the year is back for another thrilling weekend, and our entire team is bubbling with excitement! New York Comic Con (NYCC), the largest fandom convention on the East Coast, is taking over New York in just a few short weeks, bringing with it throngs of excited fanatics from across the globe.
For the past few months, we’ve been fine-tuning our equipment and technology to make sure fans get the most out of their weekend. Everyone from our Event Operations crew, to our Engineers, to our Tech Specialists are pulling out all the stops for our fifth consecutive year working with NYC’s premiere fandom event.
Our team has excelled at lightning-fast registration at the main event in the Javits Center for the past several years, and this year we’re ticketing many of the NYCC special events as well, so you’ll find our team all over! With our RFID scanners at all gates, around the convention center, and at special event venues, fans will be spending less time in lines and more time meeting their favorite celebs and checking out exclusive panels and screenings! Plus, our lead capture technology will continue to make it easier than ever for fans to connect with vendors and participate in giveaways and exclusive perks.
This year’s attendees have the chance to pre-purchase autographs for some of their favorite celebs, like Peter Capaldi, Felicity Jones, Karen Gillan, and Pearl Mackie! Not to mention an exclusive “Evening With Mark Hamill” presented in Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom, as well as a packed schedule of other special events at venues including Rock Bar, The Way Station, Hudson Mercantile, and BB King’s Blues Club & Grill to name a few!
And of course, what would any comic con be without some amazing event photos? We’re bringing back our highly anticipated photo stations to three separate NYCC venues: The Javits Convention Center, Madison Square Garden, and Hudson Mercantile. Hype fans and awesome cosplayers can take selfies, group pics, and epic action shots with our gif integration and easily share their experience on social media.
Be sure to put the finishing touches on your cosplay soon! We can’t wait to see you all there!
