As I mentioned a week ago, Collider is the exclusive media partner of Amazing Comic Con Las Vegas. The convention runs June 29th to July 1st in, you guessed it, Las Vegas, with an expected attendance of over 35,000 people for the 3-day Pop Culture extravaganza. You can buy tickets here.
Not only are we the media partner of the convention, we’re going to be hosting a few Collider related panels. Now that the schedule has been announced, I wanted to make sure you had all the details so you can stop by our panels if you’re attending the convention.
First of all, if you’re on the convention floor, make sure to stop by booth 407, 409 and 411. Everyone attending from Collider will be at the booth when we’re not busy with the panels and we’d love to meet our readers/viewers.
