Fans have been asking when this year’s LAGOS COMIC CON event will hold?
Well the event marks 5 years in 2016 and we have some juicy details and some rumours you will like. Get in here fast.
We have some scoops that you will love. We are definite that the event organiser(s) are doing their best to make the 5 year anniversary worthy its title. A working committee has already been set up and the full plan for the event is already on the table. From what we have seen and heard so far its looking good. And maybe so different from what participants are used to….in a better way.
Let’s check out some highlights of what we have confirmed:
EVENT DATE AND LOCATION
We are getting hints that the date will be on the 17th of September and that the event will be hosted again in the city of Lagos this year. We dont have an accurate venue as two locations are currently being considered. An MoU has been signed with an event planning and decoration company in Lagos to create the perfect ambience and atmosphere for a Comic Con.
Well we know from the grape vine that an international movie company in the USA has agreed to show one of its film at the event and also have a Q&A session with participant in a particular session on how the film was made. Talks are underway to get 2 more to sign up as well.
Also this year there will be both international and regional speakers session. Several international speakers have already been contacted to grace the occasion and also some creative professionals in Nigeria as well. We will have more video conferencing sessions like was debuted last year with maxwell Oginni. We will bring you the full speakers list soon.
Gaming is going to be heavy as BATTLE OF THE GAME LORDS returns with a big bang this year.
The kids Zone also has a partner who will be training the kids on all kinds of skills.
And yes the costume competition is having an official costumier and sponsor.
The Comicpanel Awards will be having even more categories this year.
The Nigerian Film industry will also be strongly represented as key Nollywood stars have signed up to be part of this years event.
BRANDING AND MARKETTING
Well, we can tell you for sure that a marketing communications outfit has been commissioned to rebrand the event and give it full media presence this year. We have seen the media plan and it looking awesome. We also can tell you affirmately the logo that wasn’t chosen. See pic at the top.
Buzzers are also on fleek that the event will have a gate fee that will give entrance into all the workshops and seminars if registered for. We know that the new website is already being worked on and should be up in April.
From what we have seen and heard this event is set to be a 5 years anniversary indeed. Be sure we will give you all the juicy news as we get it.
But what do you think about this new logo design and the general outlook of this years event.
