Two Comic Con Events Planned for 2014

Press Release

November 20, 2013

Salt Lake City — Dan Farr Productions DBA, Salt Lake Comic Con has announced it will hold two Comic Con events in 2014, including a 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience (FanX) April 17-19 and the Second Annual Salt Lake Comic Con September 4-6.

The decision to produce two events in 2014 was based on overwhelming fan response to the sold out September 2013 inaugural event.

Norman Reedus, star of the hit series The Walking Dead, will headline the initial celebrity guest list at April’s 2014 FanX. Reedus will be joined at FanX by Walking Dead co-star Chandler Riggs, Brent Spiner and Marina Sirtis from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Kelly Hu from X2:X-Men United and Adam Baldwin of Firefly. More than 100 additional celebrities and guests will be announced before the April event.

“Fans in and around Utah have spoken and made it clear that one event a year is not enough,” said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Show Producer. “This FanX will build upon the accomplishments of the first Comic Con and has expanded into virtually the entire Salt Palace Convention Center. With continued support from the fans we can rival the largest Comic Cons in North America.”

Tickets for the 2014 FanX are available today on the Salt Lake Comic Con Website. All ticket sales between now and December 31 will include a special early supporters discount for those that purchased tickets last year. Military personnel, first responders and senior citizens will receive discounts on all tickets. Additionally, for tickets purchased prior to December 31, 2013 children age 10 and under will be free of charge with all adult tickets purchased, limit two kids per adult ticket.

In addition to more space at the Salt Palace, FanX will incorporate key additions to its program, including:

  • Kid Con Pavilion. The Kid Con Pavilion will focus on entertainment and activities specifically designed for families and children.
  • More cosplay events: There will be additional cosplay contests, photo areas, and some first of their kind activities to take cosplay to a whole new level.
  • More social activities. Including robust interactive panels, Q&A’s with celebrity panelists, speed dating, social media groups and expanded areas for attendees to take pictures and socialize with fans with similar interests.
  • More entertainment. More shows within the show like last years’ Jedi Mind Tricks Comedy Show and Evil Dead Musical as well as special celebrity meet and greet events.
  • Longer hours. Nearly a half-day more of open hours over the course of the three-day event.
  • Expanded VIP experiences and benefits.
