FanX Draws more than 100,000, Breaking Records

Press Release

April 22, 2014

Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience (FanX) had more than 100,000 attendees, making it the third-largest Comic Con in the United States, the largest convention in the state of Utah and the largest Comic Con in North America per capita. Salt Lake Comic Con’s Facebook page is now the most popular page in Utah reaching 2.5 million people in one week.

“I’ve said all along that we have the best fans in the world right here in the Western United States and they proved it again with their support and attendance at Salt Lake Comic Con FanX,” said Dan Farr, Show Producer and Founder of Salt Lake Comic Con.

Salt Lake Comic Con FanX was created to satisfy the demand of fans and to provide a wider range of entertainment options for attendees. The convention included double the floor space, guests such as Patrick Stewart, Karl Urban, Chandler Riggs and Nathan Fillion, expanded hours, a new world record for the largest balloon sculpture by one man and Kid Con that focused on entertainment and activities specifically designed for families and children.

The second annual Salt Lake Comic Con will be held September 4-6 at the Salt Palace Convention Center. Similar to FanX, the September Comic Con will encompass the entire Salt Palace show floor but will expand to neighboring convention space.
