What Visitors Say

My third Em-Con and it does just get better every year. I had an absolutely cracking time in costume both days. Well organised and plenty to do. My kids' first con and they can't wait for next year! Great job EM-Con and the Arena.

This was our first convention so really didn't know what to expect. I was worried about taking two high energy children, but everyone was so patient with them. We were amazed how our little girl (20 months) reacted. She just loved everything, including the zombies! Special thanks to Scampi and Twirl who made her day. My partner was very apprehensive about going as it isn't really his thing, but he got involved and loved it. We will return to this convention every year, it was a great family day out.

Em-Con is one of my favourite conventions in my con-calendar. I've been the last three years and it just keeps getting better and better! Very well organised; knowledgeable and friendly crew; great guests; and there's something about the ambience of the venue that other cons lack which I absolutely love. Highlight of yesterday was The Walking Dead talk which was a great insight into the show and a whole lot of fun! Roll on next year's event... can't wait!

It was my first time at EM-Con and I loved it. Only booked for Saturday because I had a prior arrangement for Sunday, but it was fantastic. The atmosphere was so relaxed, the staff were very helpful and the guests were so friendly. I met Dave Prowse again for the first time since I was a child and he was lovely. Also managed to meet the Stargate actors, so amazing and friendly. My mother and I are definitely going again next year and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Third year and it has never failed to impress me. It goes from strength to strength, a variety of stalls, fantastic cosplayers and friendly guests! I also love how small the afterparty was kept too as it gave guests a chance to mingle with everyone. Long may EM-Con continue.

A massive thank you to all the staff, volunteers, attendees and guests who were at EM-Con because I had a fabulous time. You all made me feel very welcome and as I had travelled over by myself I never felt alone as I always seemed to find someone to talk to. Hopefully see you all next year.

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.
