Our friend and photographer for the show (Kevin Abato of Grenex Media) recently shared with us his full photo gallery from the event. We’ve uploaded the pictures to photobucket and they can be viewed HERE! Eventually we will add a permanent gallery of pictures here on the main website. We think he did an amazing job capturing the spirit of the convention!
Again, our biggest thanks to EVERYONE that attended Retro Con 2012! We are in the early planning stages for our 2013 show. Nothing has been locked down, but we are leaning towards it being in the same location (The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center), but in late September. We’re also planning for it to be held on a Saturday this time. Keep watching our pages for further updates!!
Our esteemed colleague Mr Optimus Prime alerted us recently that he had one last exclusive Hot Wheels-style Retro Con truck for us to give away, so we’ve decided to have a contest to see who gets it! What we’d like to see from you is YOUR OWN TAKE on what the Retro Con logo should look like. It can be as simple or complex as you care to make it. Black & white, color, hand drawn, photoshop… anything goes! There are no age or region restrictions, and you need not have attended Retro Con to enter the contest.
Our biggest and sincerest thanks to everyone that came out to the show!! The response was more than anticipated and we couldn’t be happier about it. We’re also getting a huge amount of positive feedback, so we’d say a 2013 show is highly likely! =) But for now we are taking a short break to recuperate and plan. But look for photo gallery of highlights from the show very soon, as well as our charity total for the Cat Angel Network!
We also want to thank the vendors that gave this new show a chance! We hope you all thought it was worth your while. And if any of you still have unredeemed show dollars from the day, please contact us at the link in the upper right so we can reimburse you! You are an integral part of the show and we want to make sure you are fully covered.
Again, our thanks to everyone that attended Retro Con 2012!
As the time for the show draws near, we wanted to give everyone a heads-up. We’ve been told that the Station Avenue address for the expo center doesn’t work with some GPS units/mobile apps. If this is the case with you, the expo center site recommends you use this address…
1601 Egypt Road Phoenixville, PA 19460 (Upper Providence Township)
It’s for the deli/pizzeria down the road. From there look for the signs for the expo center.
Thanks and we’ll see you at the show!! =)
