The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Due to scheduling conflicts the date has been moved. They will be doing a halloween and fanboy dual event. They are expanding into additional space in world fair's park.

We are hoping to have a fan table at least.

In light of the success with cuddles the face hugger on an RC car, I would recommend the roaming group idea. We got tons of residual interest in our table when I roamed the floors with cuddles.

We will need help staffing the table and getting more folks in costume.

We are looking at staying at the Hampton Inn downtown. The nightly rates are slightly higher, but, they have microwave meals which can cut down on your residual meal costs substantially...

Just saw on Facebook that Bruce Campbell is going to be there as a guest. That about guarantees that I am there.

Along those lines they have stated they will be bringing in more Horror guests to go with their "Halloween in July" theme, so fingers crosse they can squeeze in some Alien(s) guests as well.

Yes the Bruce announcement has made my day. Now I need to finish my chainsaw to have him sign. Meeting him and getting his autograph at Walker Stalker was unreal. As for us getting a table, this has not been guaranteed yet. I heard back from them this weekend. They will not be giving out any tables until they finalize the floor layout. That being said the request is in. I have also requested 2 spots for this event so we can do the charity foam dart shooting range. Like I said in previous posts I have been bothering Mr Spencer in the UK. Working the booth at the NSC over there in 2015 was great and something I want to bring over here. Right now the charity will be St Jude children's hospital. I will be working on getting the items together. Depending on what I bring will determine where I stay. The convivence of being next door might over weigh other factors. Once I get more information it will be posted. Update on the background for the photo is that I might have to resource. The company I was going to order from has had their supplier close shop. This has put all immediate orders in doubt. I am looking for someone around here. I would like to get new banners, cards, and the photo backdrop printed at the same place. Again hope you can make it. If we do get the extra booth, we will need all the help we can get with both the table and shooting range.

Thanks!

Greg

Looks like we can get another fan table. I am checking to see if we can do another panel.

Just wanted to let everyone know once again we will have a fan table at the FanBoy Expo July 12-14 2019 in Knoxville Tn.
https://fanboyexpo.com/
https://www.facebook.com/fanboyexpo/
This year will be huge as FanBoy is combining their 2 yearly events into one. They are also spreading out. They are working on the layout so not for sure where we will be located. Here a post from their Facebook page.

Ok we haven't pushed the outside stuff too much because we were waiting to get all the ducks in a row. But CHECK THIS OUT! Yes its super busy and my artwork is lame but it gives you an idea of the general set up of Fanboy Expo this July. In total its more than 300k sq ft of space! More than double what we had last year. In addition, we will have 2 vendor halls, a huge area for photo ops, a massive q&a hall, lots of fun foods, places to sit, and after con events on both Friday and Sat in the amplitheater! We are excited(and a little nervous) because this year we really do takeover downtown Knox. We can't wait to see you all there! http://www.fanboyexpo.com

This is turning out to be a big hit this summer. The backdrop will be present and we are working getting at least one egg and facehugger. So bring the kids and get pics!
