Sideshow New York Con 2020 Launches This Fall- October 6th- October 11th
Sideshow once again declares ‘The Con is On’ with a unique virtual twist amid the canceled fall convention season.
Following the rousing success of this summer’s Sideshow Con 2020, a first-of-its-kind experience for the collectibles company, this fall’s Sideshow “New York” Con 2020 will keep collectors and fans entertained and excited with new product reveals and announcements from the industry’s leading artists and manufacturers.
While most physical conventions have moved entirely into the digital realm, Sideshow New York Con will recreate their bold custom-made installation that debuted during the summer show season, with updates to the format to keep fans engaged throughout the week. This secure and private environment captures the spirit of the incredible “pop culture art gallery” style presence that Sideshow traditionally exhibits at shows like New York Comic Con in order to augment the comprehensive virtual streaming experience for audiences at home.
Sideshow PR Manager, Andy Smith, said:
“Once again, we’re building a bespoke physical space at Sideshow Studios – but this time in the form of an intimate museum/art gallery-style venue – with podium displays with fine art on the walls, and beautiful pop culture dioramas showcasing statues and figures by Sideshow, Hot Toys, PCS Collectibles, Iron Studios, Tweeterhead, Unruly Industries™, Atomic Misfit, and more.
Sideshow will be sharing a wealth of social media content throughout the event, including live-streamed booth tours, photos, interviews, and contests – and we’ll be showcasing different displays every single day!
Fans can experience Sideshow NY Con via our official social media platforms, or by visiting side.show/con.
We will also have pre-registration exclusive perks – including early access to convention merch and new reveals.”
Sideshow New York Con offers fans a chance to engage closely with their favorite products, artists, and fandoms without lines, crowds, or taxis- the only traffic here is web traffic! Access to Sideshow’s full convention experience has never been easier with in-depth product-focused livestreams, as well as creator interviews, up-to-the-minute reveals and announcements, and other content features that bring all of the news right to you from October 6th-October 11th.
In order to provide a fuller experience for fans at home, FREE PRE-REGISTRATION for the event, which began on Monday, September 28th, gives registrants priority access to CONTENT, CONVENTION EXCLUSIVE merch, CONTESTS, and more.
Sideshow Con’s summer 2020 swag bundle was an instant sell-out, with the fall swag bundle– complete with a collectible pin, an event T-shirt, and a promotional code- expected to be equally as popular. Fans who purchase this limited edition promo swag will also receive a FREE bonus Stan Lee collectible pin celebrating the comic book legend and the city that never sleeps.
Fans can also score reward points for their Sideshow account during the event, meaning there are plenty of chances to collect throughout the convention.
