UPDATE Phoenix Comic Fest 2018-Last Day

May 27, 2018 | Comic Cons

PRESS RELEASE

PPhoenix, AZ, May 27, 2018 — We have met with the Phoenix Convention Center, security providers, and fire department officials. Phoenix Comic Fest will continue as planned on Sunday, May 27th. We anticipate all security checkpoints will open on time based on posted hours. 

All attendees with a Saturday single day credential will be allowed to exchange it at any redemption station for a Sunday credential. Attendees are asked to bring the Saturday wristband with them if possible. 

Exhibitors will be able to enter at 8 am at any entrance. Staff and crew will report at scheduled times so we can be prepared to have a fantastic final day of Phoenix Comic Fest 2018.

Phoenix Convention Center and Phoenix Comic Fest will hold a media briefing at 7 am Sunday morning at 2nd Street and Adams, in front of the Phoenix Convention Center West Building.

Square Egg Entertainment would like to thank the Phoenix Police Department, Phoenix Fire Department, EMTs, Pride Group, CSC, IPSA, The Phoenix Convention Center, Unified Command, MSA, and our staff and crew for their dedication and hardwork in keeping all of us safe, but we would especially like to thank you, our attendees, who we consider part of our geek family, for your support, your patience, and your understanding. 

 

 
Your Hometown Geek doesn’t see how any of this is Phoenix Comic Fest’s fault. The Phoenix Convention Center made the call to cancel the rest of Saturday night’s programming after the evactuation and took as long as they did to (necessarily) inspect the buildings and decide on that.  We think Phoenix Comic Fest was doing their best to come back from last year’s troubles and made a lotof improvements, but it appeared to us that attendance was down anyway. We were covering the event for all 4 days were very happy that Saturday-only ticket holders who were given a chance to go Sunday, too, now, if they choose. That was a great move on Phoenix Comic Fest’s part to engender good will and they were not obligated to do so.  There will always be naysayers, but we commend Square Egg Entertainment for doing their best to make a comeback this year and we have been thoroughly impressed with all the changes that were made.  We have felt completely safe throughout our time at Phoenix Comic Fest this year and will return tomorrow (Sunday) for more coverage.
