This year marks the first ever Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart. The convention was held in the Stuttgart Trade Fair (Exhibition Hall 1). According to Messe Stuttgart, there were 50,000 visitors that came to the convention this year. And they announced the date for next year’s Comic Con Germany which will be on 1-2 July 2017.
Quick Update: This weekend, we got a chance to visit the first ever Comic Con Germany as press. We arrived around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday 26 June, got our press badges and headed over to the Exhibition Hall 1. The convention was definitely packed, there were tons of people who came. And there were also lots of fun activities. I was very impressed with the celebrity stars they had lined up for their first year especially – Manu Bennett and Liam McIntyre (leading stars from Spartacus).
Cool things in Comic Con Germany:
This year their star guests include – Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Karen Fukuhara, Seamus Dever, Jon Juertas, and many more. Visitors can get their autographs and photos with the stars (extra fee). And they also have a Q&A session.
