Comic Con will be hosted by the Mother City, Cape Town in 2020, according to Reed Exhibitions Africa and ReedPop.
The managing director of Reed Exhibitions, Carol Weaving, said;
“With the unprecedented success of the 2018 Comic Con Africa, it is the natural next step to bring this format to the city of Cape Town,”
What Comic Con has in store for Cape Town
Comic Con Cape Town has formed a strategic partnership with the Cape Town International Animation festival.
Comic Con Cape Town will, therefore, have a stronger focus on Film and TV series.
Weaving hopes that the partnership will not only grow Comic Con Cape Town, but also the Cape Town Animation festival.
Although the style of Comic Con Cape Town differs to that of Comic Con Africa, the same amount of entertainment should be expected.
Comic Con Cape Town’s key pillars will include, film, series, animation, cosplay, comic books and gaming.
A variety of fun for basically everyone.
When will Comic Con take place?
Comic Con Cape Town will commence from 1 to 3 May 2020.
According to the organisers, Reedpop, the date for Comic Con was “researched in great detail.”
The organisers of the event needed to consider when other local events were to be held as well as needing to consider the global Comic Con calendar.
Reedpop stated in a press release;
“When looking for a venue to host Comic Con Cape Town the venue advised the organisers that FanCon would be taking place in June 2020 which meant that hosting Comic Con Cape Town right at the beginning of May over a public holiday would allow adequate time between both events and Reed Exhibitions and Reed Pop are more than happy to collaborate and co-promote any other pop culture event for the good of the industry.”
Fans of film, comics, series and gaming can look forward to a juicy line-up of local and international celebrities.
