There are other conventions big ones but some are not what you think but for STGCC it’s about making the event a fan experience besides the attraction.
And for that the organizers from Reed Expo and the people behind the successful New York Comic Con has released a press announcement how thankful to all their visitors throughout the region for making STGCC a successful event each year…
The sixth edition of Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) experienced a spike in numbers across the board this year. The most significant increase lies in the show attendance. Drawing close to 40,000 local and regional visitors over the weekend of 31 August and 1 September, STGCC has seen a compelling growth from 35,000 last year.
With a rise of 40% in exhibitor number and 20% in the count of STGCC exclusives and product launches, the local show has matured into a notable platform for pop culture exchange of the East and West. The performance of the show has further strengthened its position as the largest stage that brings toys, games and comics to consumers in Southeast Asia.
“The year-on-year growth of the show has affirmed the direction that we’ve been steering the show towards. This is how we’ve always envisioned our pop culture show to be – international content for a regional audience, right here in Singapore,” said Ms Yeow Hui Leng, Senior Project Director of STGCC.
“STGCC has grown beyond a retail show. It is now an annual event for brands to connect with fans, and show their appreciation to them. We are confident of bringing more quality brands on board future editions of STGCC,” said Ms Yeow.
