It's been a few weeks now since the first ever Comic Con Africa blew the majority of the fans' minds.
However, Reed Exhibitions Africa and ReedPOP have announced that the second edition of Comic Con Africa will be taking place from 21-24 September 2019, at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, South Africa.
Due to the unprecedented success of the inaugural Comic Con Africa, the event will now take place over four days, including the Heritage Day public holiday on the 24th. This is to accommodate even more pop culture fans that will be wanting to attend after the success of this year's event.
"We exceeded our own expectations in 2018 and you are going to see bigger and better in 2019. We have listened to our fans first which means we needed to find a venue that is bigger, with more parking, more shade, easy access and Gallagher Convention Centre fits this bill perfectly," adds Carol Weaving, MD of Reed Exhibitions Africa.
With more pop culture, movies, comics, books, e-sports and celebrities, and hopefully no high-profile cancellations, we do hope that Comic Con Africa 2019 will see the star attraction we know is coming their way.
Ticket pricing is unknown for now, but are said to go live towards the end of November. When announced we will be sure to share the details with you.
