45 000 fans stream through the gates of the inaugural Comic Con Africa
19 September 2018, Reed Exhibitions Africa, ReedPOP and VS Gaming today announced the unprecedented success of the inaugural Comic Con Africa. There were several elements that made this event such a success and an African first. Over 45 000 fans made their way through the gates of the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit & International Convention Centre on the weekend of 14-16 September. Comic Con Africa sold out before the gates opened to the public which is unprecedented in the SA eventing industry. This Comic Con was the first time globally that had such a strong esports affiliation which was driven through the partnership with Telkom’s VS Gaming and the Master’s finals.
