VIECC 2016

The event was even bigger than the last year. It spanned two large main convention halls and a dedicated conference room where all of the panels were held. In the first room you could find many different shops with memorabilia, weapons, comics and other sci-fi related items. There were also some celebrities that did the signing and photo sessions with their fans, but that is usually way to expensive unless you are huge fan of theirs. The second room featured artist alley where you could meet your favorite artist and buy cheap prints of high quality and awesome art.

In parallel to this event, the next hall featured an event called SpieleSpass. The idea of this event was for the people to come there and try as many different board games as they liked. The hall was packed with tables were people, mostly families with kids, played all sorts of board games.

VIECC 2015

On the 21st and 22nd of November 2015 the first edition of Vienna Comic Con premiered at the Messe Wien exhibit hall in Vienna, Austria. The event aims to be the leading pop culture event in Central Europe, so be prepared for larger hall and more people next year. For this year they already managed to bring a handful of moderately famous people from film and TV industry to do the signing, photos sessions and panels. As the main hall was quite smaller than I expected (from my previous trips to other Cons) it was still packed with action and cosplayers.

A great portion of the event hall was dedicated to gaming, especially to the newest Assassin’s creed game.
