One of the great joys of being a pop culture collector and fan is the thrill of attending a comic or fandom convention. We are fortunate to have a plethora of convention options today, from the locally-organized to the mega-studio PR events that dominate our social feeds every summer. Regardless of which Con you attend, there is always a sense of anticipation and excitement leading up to the event; choosing what panels and events you want to hit, which guests you have to meet, and compiling your short-list of must-haves collectibles to add to your collection.
The Clect Team is feeling that same sense of anticipation as we busily prepare to descend on Wizard World Chicago later this month. As many of you know, Wizard World is the largest producer of pop culture fandom events in the world, and Clect is fortunate to have a deep partnership with them. That partnership is key to helping us add more Clectas to our ever-expanding community of geeky greatness!
So, where will you find Clect at Wizard World Chicago, you ask?
Start by visiting Our Clect Booth:
We’re conveniently located right in the middle of the action. Our booth is #118 in Premier Hall A (next door to the Wizard World Exclusives booth). The whole team will be there and we look forward to meeting our fellow Clectas, so be sure to stop by and introduce yourself.
Need a more compelling reason to visit us other than seeing our smiling faces in person? Fair enough, how about this:
Enter to Win this Cool Mondo Print:
We’re giving away this incredible original, limited edition, out-of-print Back to the Future Mondo print, by artist James Flames. This gorgeous print will be on display at our booth and one lucky Clecta is going to add it to their collection. Since the original cast of BTTF are attending the Chicago convention, we thought it essential to celebrate one of the great pop culture properties of all time!
