POPCON ADDS SECOND INDIANA-BASED EVENT
Multi-genre popular culture company PopCon continues to act as economic incubator for Indiana.
INDIANAPOLIS (August 20, 2018) – Indiana’s Premier Comic Con organization PopCon is adding a second Indiana-based event in Fort Wayne this year on December 29th and 30th at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. Geeks, gamers, superfans, and families unite! PopCon, a celebration of all things pop culture, is growing immediately following their fifth anniversary, and this time they are bringing the love of all things geek to Indiana’s second largest city.
PopCon continues to bring some of the largest names in pop culture to Indiana. Instead of focusing on one specific fandom, PopCon flips the script on the typical con experience by focusing on all genres of fandom.
“PopCon couldn’t be more thrilled to be expanding into Fort Wayne,” said Carl Doninger, one of the owners of PopCon. “We are excited to bring our geeky family-friendly guests, events, cosplay, panels, activities and fun to our neighbors in the north! There truly is something for everyone at PopCon.”
“Visit Fort Wayne is excited to have this new event in our city!” says Josie O’Donnel of Visit Fort Wayne. “There is so much to do in Fort Wayne and now there is even more!”
