As most of you know, GCCC is a non-profit team of Geeks and Freaks that started out from a small family of hardcore nerds from in and around Aberdeen. To this day, the event is still pulled together by the volunteers from back in 2015 at Transition Extreme when we were just testing the waters out in our hometown, and boy you did not disappoint and we work hard every year to repay your unbelievable support for GCCC.
We have always tried to be about promoting all that is cool about our “not so” alternative culture and bringing awesome stuff to our hometown for the local fans. Since year one you guys have helped us to bring huge stars, awesome props and costumes, comic book talent galore, so many activities, once in a lifetime panels, and the ability to showcase the unbelievable local Cosplay talent at its best! (and we really mean that!)
Our fourth convention in 2018 had us embark on very new territory which included a much larger venue with its own set of challenges. Whilst this enabled us to put on an arguably bigger and more elaborate event for all the attendees, it felt like a step away from the original core values that we envisioned from the start. With that being said, we’re delighted to announce that Granite City Comic-Con 2019 will return to the DoubleTree by Hilton Aberdeen Treetops on Springfield road Aberdeen. TeamGCCC are really looking forward to collaborating with the Hotel again to ensure that we bring the best event to Aberdeen that we can.
This will allow us to reap the benefits of working with such a brilliant team and allow us at TeamGCCC to provide the best possible experience for our fans and newcomers alike.
Our second announcement for Granite City Comic-Con is that the event will be held on Saturday 24th August 2019! That’s right, it’s slightly later in the year and it’s also being condensed into a single day. So fear not if you thought you missed out on previous years by only being able to attend a single day, we’re ensuring that GCCC2019 is going to be a day to remember!
We are already planning more workshops, more cosplay content, more creators, more interaction, more involvement for the fans, more awesome creative guests and panels you will never see outside of GCCC.
Please stay tuned here on facebook and our other social media channels to ensure you don’t miss out on future updates. Vendor, exhibitor, guest and ticket information will be forthcoming in the upcoming weeks and months…
