GalaxyCon Launches Virtual Celebrity and Fan Experiences
GalaxyCon is launching a new business for virtual events online called GalaxyCon Live this weekend. This new venture creates an original approach for connecting celebrities and fans that represents a first for the comic con industry.
Here’s what people can expect from GalaxyCon Live:
- Live Streaming Interviews with Celebrities
- One-on-Group Video Chats with a Fan and a Group of Celebrities
- One-on-One Video Chats with a Fan and One Celebrity
- Personalized Autographs
- Personalized Video Recordings
These virtual meet and greets make it possible for fans to engage with celebrities on a level that isn’t possible in person. During a comic con, fans have never had a chance to chat for two minutes with two or more celebrities at one time in a private setting. GalaxyCon Live will make this interaction possible, starting with their first virtual meet and greet on May 2nd, 2020.
GalaxyCon Live will carry on the tradition of creating experiences for all genres of nerdy fandoms including comics, anime, animation, cosplay, science fiction, wrestling, fantasy, and gaming.
Some of the first events to include private chats with celebrities include the following:
- May 2, 2020 at 2pm EST: My Hero Academia’s Three Best Girls Monica Rial, Colleen Clinkenbeard, and Luci Christian
