As promised we’ve got some huge news which we broke only mere minutes ago on the main stage of the Brisbane Supanova! Many folks have been very upset that we were unable to have Christopher Lloyd join us at the Brisbane and Melbourne Supanova events (we were upset too!) so we’re giving him another chance! We’re bringing Christopher back in November to see all his fans!
But more importantly we’re giving our brisbane Supa-Fans another complete show! Instead of the one day event that we’ve run in November for the Cosplay Championships, we’re expanding it to be a complete 3 day Supanova event!
Thats right! A full Supanova event with all the exhibitors, events and stars you’ve come to expect, combined with the grand final of the Madman National Cosplay Championships, November 4 – 6, 2011!
And then a week later in Melbourne, November 12, 2011, we’ll be running a smaller event to make sure that all Christopher’s fans there don’t miss out on a chance to see him either! For the price of an autograph you’ll be able to meet Christopher, attend a Q&A and get an autograph included!
That would be exciting enough, but there is method in our madness! There is a a reason why we’re adding this new show to the annual lineup and its a DOOZY!
In 2012 the world will end!
Only kidding! But in 2012 we will be adding a whole new tour to the Supanova calendar!
We begin 2012 with our regularly scheduled Melbourne Expo on April 13th to 15th but then the very next week on the weekend of the 2oth to 22nd of April the Supanova family are heading to The GOLD COAST!
Run in conjunction with our traditionally April Supanova event in Melbourne, partnering with the Gold Coast Film Festival and timed to coincide with The Apollo Awards, the Gold Coast Supanova event will be working with the rapidly growing film and TV industry on the Gold Coast and in conjunction with the Brisbane Supanova to make the Queensland expos THE industry events in Australia.
Then in June our East/West tour continues as it has in years past with Sydney Supanova on the 15th to the 17th of June, and then Perth Supanova for the 22nd to the 24th of June.
Then (and this is where it gets really exciting) In November we’re back for Brisbane Supanova on November 9th to the 11th followed the next week by a brand new expo: Supanova Adelaide on November 16th to the 18th!
Thats THREE epic tours or SIX huge shows spanning the length and breadth of the country! Each show will include a Friday Preview Night, with Brisbane expanded to encompass Directors Day on the Friday as well.
Sure, by November we’re all going to need a bit of a lie-down but thats ok, because we’re committed to bring you the best entertainment, the best events and the biggest stars, wherever you are in the wide brown land!
And we’ve still got to get through this year!
