Event Program Released!
The Event Program has been released for the event. There will be print copies at the event, but we wanted everyone to get a gander at the event prior. The Program is located on the Attendance page in the sidebar. It comes in a PDF version and JPEG (Page 1, Page 2)
As we’re only one week out from the Con and to celebrate crossing the 300 Facebook guest mark, as well as the tremendous job our organizers and partners (dealers, special guests, vendors) have done to gain awareness for the event, I would like to share with you an almost final (one more student group needs to give approval) show poster for the event. This is less of an advertisement poster and more commemorative. Thanks for all your support and participation everyone.

Max Capacity on Table Space, but we’re still looking for help!
We’d just like to give everyone the heads up on here that we are at maximum capacity for table space! While we’re sad that we cannot accommodate everyone, we are blown away at the fact we had such a great response to the event. We have some truly excellent guests, creators, vendors, panelists, and dealers taking part in the event. Without all of your support and participation, this event would not be possible. This is an absolutely amazing opportunity for everyone in our region to celebrate their love of the comic book and graphic novel, as well as geek and pop culture. Thank you all so much, and we cannot wait to see you at the Con.
Note: We are still taking donations and sponsorship of any kind. We have some great prizes, but we’re looking to get some more giveaway opportunities for our guests! We are open to anything. If this is something you would be interested in, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
***PARKING UPDATE INFORMATION***
Some of our older information releases had Lot 11 down as a parking location. We’ve found out that this parking lot becomes a city lot on the weekends, and we are unable to use it for parking. We have replaced it with Lots 2 & 3. Check here for a map and more information about parking on Rutgers Camden Campus. There is also a PDF link above the interactive map for you to print out.
