Armageddon Expo – Auckland
October 24, 2014 @ 6:00 PM - October 27, 2014 @ 5:00 PM
From Armageddon’s website:
After four massive events in Dunedin, Christchurch, Hamilton and Wellington, plans are well underway for the largest expo in NZ to return this Labour Long weekend on October 24th to 27th 2014 with an even crazier event than ever before.
We have been working hard to make the 2014 event the best yet and have made some new additions and changes, including:
- A redesigned floor plan, with wider aisleways throughout the event and a 6m aisle right through the middle of the show.
- Two separate entries for presale and on the day tickets
- Three new entry areas and an 80 meter marquee to hold more attendees
- Literary Fair in Hall six (the large hall outside the main venue). This all-new event will feature international and local writers and will be specifically dedicated to the written medium. Entry to this hall will be FREE as an external event to the main expo.
- Numerous new exhibitors from across NZ and overseas.
- NZ Gaming area and panels
- Electronic signage in main areas of the event for more detailed information on events within the expo.
We will also have some MASSIVE gaming displays alongside exhibitors, comics, anime, collectibles and more. Already confirmed is a number of different celebrity guests including a few amazing surprises and all new stars attending – including Wrestling star Hacksaw Jim Duggan, four System Lords from Stargate and more!
Guests announced so far include:
- The Ghostfacers aka Travis Wester and A.J. Buckley
- Kelly Hu
- Jacqueline Samuda
- David Hewlett
- Suanne Braun
- Peter Williams
- Helen Slater
- Cliff Simon
- Kevin Eastman
- Richard Fairgray
- Roger Jackson
- William Salyers
- ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan
And many other big names in comics, anime, manga and cartoons.
Two of our favourite things about the Armageddon expos are the Friday Night Cocktail Party, which features the majority of the guests, and Absentee Packs, so if you can’t be there you can still purchase an personalised autographed photo from as many of the guests as you like. Tickets go on sale on August 1 and we’re sure there will be plenty more awesome guest annoucements before then!
And we’re excited to say that Captain Rum will be at this one so we’ll be able to bring you all the highlights. Let us know if you’ll be there too in the comments below!
