Convention contact info
 
Hi all,

Here is the thread for posting convention websites and their contact info!

Re: Convention contact info
 
Hi folks! Here is the page for San Diego Comic Con. I understand it's fairly gigantic, as comic cons go... As in, the mother of all comic cons. I wouldn't know.... I've only ever been to one of these things before. SD is a 5 hour drive for me, but I love SD anyway and think this would make a fantastic vacation. So, my request... :)

Here's the website:
https://www.comic-con.org/cci/attending-show

And here's the "Contact" site:
https://www.comic-con.org/contact

I thought that something this huge would have a dedicated guest suggestion box, and this page seems to be the catch all contact form for all the events, but I can't seem to find anything more specific. So I'm just submitting the form using the category "I have a suggestion, comment or complaint." Please let me know if there's a better way!

Could you guys request Dirk and maybe Dwight, too? :)

You're welcome! I requested both Dirk and Dwight :)

Wizard World

OK folks, I found this great group of conventions across the US next year.

https://wizardworld.com/

I think the ones in Santa Fe and Chicago (July and August) would be good options for a reasonably sized conference people could get to. (Santa Fe is totally preferable for me but Chicago is probably more central for everyone else...) It looks pretty cool - Lou Ferrigno will be at both events and the recent/next events feature a bunch of awesome celebs. So I sent a request for Dirk to the main guest suggestion mailbox:

talent@Wizardworld.com

Please consider sending them a quick note and letting them know you would like them to invite Dirk!!! :)

Ooh! Or St. Louis in April - That would be even better!!!

I will email them tonight!

Also, I found a huge convention in Atlanta called Momocon. Please send requests to info@momocon.com! Looks like a lot of fun and I could probably get there ;)

Re: Convention contact info
 
Done!! Atlanta would be nice in May. :)

I'll do my best as well by sending requests. Don't know if that will help ...
I did send a request for him to appear at FACTS together with Dwight :)

Which one is FACTS again? I mean, where is it? I know Dirk has been to that one before.

It's in Belgium. There's a great YouTube video of a Q & A when he was there in 2011. https://youtu.be/pub-YNZCrgA

Ah. That one is actually in my country in Ghent. John told me he really liked that one. But I'll keep sending messages to the requested US ones too.

Well, bad news on momocon.. got a note back that they are focusing more on comics and anime. At least they do respond to suggestions!

Yes, the person who responded was very polite. That's the South! And I mean that in a good way :)

Yep, that's been my experience!!

So I found another convention that's fairly close to one of my company locations that I've yet to visit - Emerald City Comicon in Seattle... I think it's a pretty big one though (Stan Lee is going to be there) and they already started announcing guests - It's in early March. But here's the info:

General Info -

I just had to share this. :)

Erin –

Thank you for the suggestion, and for taking the time to write in. We do appreciate hearing from the Fans.

I’m not sure if Mr. T does conventions or not, but I pity the fool who wouldn’t want to meet him. J

Take Care,
Todd
-----------------

Hi Todd,

Is it too late to suggest guests for ECCC 2017? I know of a few people interested in meeting the A-Team actors Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz and Mr. T. I know Mr. Benedict and Mr. Schultz regularly attend fan events, but I'm not sure about the latter.

Anyway, thank you for your time and consideration! Have a great weekend. :)

Hey all, I'm playing catch up. Looks like you're all looking for convention centers. Cool. I'm still on my mission to meet dirk in person. Anything I can do to help? I emailed Boston a few times before but never heard anything except a brief "thank you for emailing us" blah blah blah. If I'm doing something wrong, by all means, give me pointers and I'll do it all over again. We've got Worcester, Rhode Island, etc.

anneg1026 12-12-2016 06:59 PM

Some conventions don't even answer. I never heard from Tampa Bay comic con :( Just keep trying! :) Our persistence has to pay off eventually!

That is frustrating. Hmmm, well, I'll do more thinking tomorrow. Lost a friend today to liver failure. He was only 50. He had been in ICU for over a week. It's been a long day and brain is tired. I'll think better later in the week but I'll keep thinking.

John, so how did things wrap up with all those questions? Can't wait to hear all Dirk has to say. Should be really fun.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Michele...

I would love to see Dirk at a con in MA/RI. Could visit my family in the same trip. Let's team up and request one! I'll do some research.

My condolences. I lost a brother the same age a year ago.

Oh Michele. That's awful. I'm so sorry for your loss.
I lost my brother in law to heart failure at age 48 last year (day before New Year's Eve).
Big hug to you.
