What Visitors Say

It was our first time at EM-Con and we loved it, so much cosplay! They were so polite and happily let my son have photos taken. Austin St John was amazing, he took a few minutes to come say hi, we brought some pretty cool stuff too. All in all was a great day, bring on next year!

I travelled from the south coast to this convention and loved it. The people were friendly and the volunteers helpful. I loved that you could get group photo shoots with people from the same show and the ops were not rushed at all (I had three retakes). Lots of space to sit and plenty to see. My only regret was not being able to stay longer. Well done. I would make the journey again.

Absolutely amazing! I sadly only went for the Saturday this year, but it was great! I cosplayed as a female version of Captain Kirk and the atmosphere was amazing! People complimenting each other on costumes, politely asking for pictures. Compared to last year it was so much more organised. Much more open space so people weren't cramped up, and celeb signings/photos were a lot more organised too. Can't wait to go back next year!

Just keeps getting better and better. Three years down and many more to go (we hope). Had a thoroughly enjoyable time and putting it on over two days certainly helped keep the crowds down to a nice comfortable level. The cosplayers were amazing (as always) and help to make it a better show. EM-Con staff did a marvellous job in the organised chaos that are autograph and photo queues. Atlantis talk was amazing. I have been to many events over a long time and this is on my list for repeats every year. Thanks again to one and all and see you on the flip side

What a fantastic event from beginning to the end. Pity we were there for only one day as I did not even get chance to go round the stalls. I normally go to events on my own and would have been in the same opinion, however this event we consisted of three adults and two children and we all had a brilliant time. The team of helpers were happy and obliging and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back next year without a doubt!

Absolutely fantastic event. This show has grown into one of the best in the UK. Well organised with a wonderful friendly team that love what they do. A great selection of guests from popular TV shows from the 60s to the present day. Looking forward to the next one! This will be hard to beat!

What The Press Say

EM-Con was a very enjoyable day out – to consider this is only the convention’s third year, and the first time it has spanned two days, is worth a lot of praise. If the team behind EM-Con continue this rate of growth then expect them to be pulling in bigger and bigger guests over the next couple of years. It might not be situated in London but EM-Con is developing into an unsung gem amongst the UK’s conventions.

We had a fantastic time at the event, trawling the stalls, meeting the stars and being frightened by zombies! But it was the fans who made the day, with their bold and brilliant costumes in tribute to their favourite characters.
