Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention Returns!
A few weeks have passed since SCGC 2017. We’ve had some time to reflect on the success of the event, and we have got a few things to share with you.
SCGC2017 - saw us move to a new bigger venue that really helped to get more people into the convention at one time, meaning that the 1000+ attendees were granted quicker access with little to no queues throughout the day.
We saw an increase in trader space too, with 33% more stalls than we had at the Volcano theatre in 2016. These were both returning traders and a great mix of new traders to offer a much wider choice for all our visitors.
Another new feature of SCGC2017 was the guests that we had in attendance. Dylan Teague, The Etherington Brothers, Conor Boyle, Steve Lockley, and Dyfrig Griffiths.
We also expanded the range of activities on offer with GAME attending with a range of consoles and VR for people to try out free of charge and TCG tournaments. On top of these activities we also saw the return of Esdevium Games who were running taster sessions for a number of table top games, the Swansea Comics Collective wall comic, a full program of panels, the Cosplay competition, and live music from the amazing Jollyboat.
Taking all of that in to account and to thank you for the continued support that you guys have shown us we thought that we’d surprise you with an announcement!
Swansea Comic and Gaming Convention will return once again to the Brangwyn Hall in 2018! So mark off your diaries as you’ll be busy on the 5th of May 2018!
Thank you to The Art of SoK for another awesome gamer barbarian piece!
