Q&A for this year’s Comic Con
For this 3rd Kitchener Comic Con Market Space, it will be a fantastic mix of both retailers and artists. And here are some key questions for you just to make sure that this event is the best event for your event adventures:
Q: How many years has the show been in existence?
A: 2017 is the third year of operations for Kitchener Comic Con.
Q: Are the same people organizing the show as did last year?
Q: What was the attendance last year?
A: 3,500 attended last year.
Q: Where do you advertise?
A: We will be orchestrating a poster campaign within specialty stores in Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge, as well a flyer campaign on street level of the downtown core of Kitchener. This is in conjunction with our media campaign of social media, print, radio and television.
Q: What categories/media of craft are accepted?
A: Kitchener Comic Con is a comic book event, hopefully for the best return for your table investment, it is our suggestion your vending table should reflect our event genre. Example; if you sell cast iron frying pans, and you’re hoping that individuals who are looking for comic book products would buy your product… maybe not the best fit, if you know what we mean.
Q: What is not accepted?
A: Kitchener Comic Con is a very family friendly show; your selling items should be balanced and treated as such.
