Anime Fest @ NYCC x Anime Expo is Back in October
ReedPOP has announced that Anime Fest @ NYCC x Anime Expo will be coming back for its second year! Anime Fest 2019 is a celebration for all things anime. Located just a block away from the Javits Center during New York Comic Con (October 3-6, 2019) it will be the NYCC home for exclusive and intimate anime panels and signings, interactive and immersive experiences, after hours parties, and a place to geek out and connect with other fans in.
This year features improvements on last year’s experience. Here are the details:
- VENUE CHANGE: Anime Fest has moved from the Pier to the Hudson Mercantile in order to bring the event closer to the heart of show. A big part of coming out to NYCC is planning ahead and the distance between locations and venues is important. NYCC already houses an amazing amount of anime content and this puts #AFNYCC right back into the middle of the action.
- GUESTS & CONTENT: ReedPOP has worked to be more in sync with our other NYCC events so you’ll find more anime throughout all of the programming. In addition, Anime Fest will have exclusive panels and signings so fans can get up close and personal with talent. ReedPOP is working with Anime Expo to make sure the content this year is the best representation of anime content at NYCC in previous years.
- TICKETS: The panels and signings with talent will be separately ticketed events. The other cool thing this year is that the 1st floor of Hudson Mercantile will function as an Anime Fest HQ. This community hub will be open to both NYCC badge holders and Anime Fest ticket holders alike, featuring interactive and immersive experiences and opportunities to connect with other fans.
