Indianapolis has always been a pretty geeky town. They host the biggest gaming convention in the US, Gen Con, in August of each year. Accordingly, their downtown has embraced the convention crowd and is awesome for con attendees. They have a huge variety of food trucks to feed the hungry masses. So it is into this amazing locale that another geek opportunity arrives. Indy Popcon will be held at the Indiana Convention Center on May 30th and run through June 1st. As is the case with most cons, Indy Popcon was created by a group of people who attend conventions and had some ideas of what they wanted to see in a convention. So along with an impressive list of inaugural year guests, this con is focusing on the determined artists and creators that are working hard to develop new content for the pop culture audience. The con will feature artists and developers from all areas of media in a combined format so attendees get a dynamic con experience.
Just a few of the celebrity entertainment guests are:
Ron Glass, our favorite preacher from Firefly
Sylvester McCoy from Doctor Who
and The Hobbit
Kristian Nairn and Esme Bianco from Game of Thrones
Nicholas Brendon from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
and Criminal Minds
Additionally, Indy PopCon will have guests from the realms of Comics, Anime, Cosplay, Gaming, and many pop culture internet creators.
Geek City Guides will be there too at booth 812. We would love to meet you, so stop by and leave us some comments and maybe even sign up for our give-aways! See you in Indy!
